Name

If anyone questions the title "Jeffersonian Republicans," its from Dictionary of American History (2003). This is the most respected reference work on American history. The name was changed for the current (third) edition. The earlier editions use "Democratic-Republican party." From scanning a few recent works, my sense is that most historians have gone along with the name change. Jefferson and the other party leaders never called the party "Democratic Republican," and the link between this party the modern Democratic Party should not be overemphasized.
