Note: This party was actually known as the Republican Party. In 1828, nationalists within the Republican Party split to form the National Republican Party. Although the former party was still formally calling itself the Republican Party at the time of its national convention in 1832, it was informally known as the Democratic-Republican Party in order to distinguish itself from the National Republican Party. By the mid-1830s, they were referring to themselves as the Democratic Party, although the term “Democratic Republicans” was also often used. The party has been ofﬁcially calling itself the Democratic Party ever since 1844.
