Being the day before the exam and all, I thought I'd see if anyone on here could clarify something for me. I keep getting all of the political parties throughout the ages mixed up. I know that it started out with Federalists and Democratic-Republicans, then Democrats and Whigs, then Republicans and Democrats, or something like that.
Is there any source or reference that has something of a progression of these parties and what the characteristics of each were? (Like: Populists favored a silver standard, etc...)
