Answer by  dreality (20)

The first mention of the Democratic Party was in 1792, when Thomas Jefferson formed the party to counteract the conservative Federalist Party. In 1798, the Democratic-Republican Party was officially formed, but split in 1824 to form two distinct national parties: the democrats and republicans.

The party has used the current name since around 1825. The Democratic-Republican Party emerged from the original Anti-federalist faction. The party split over the successor to President James Monroe. The Democratic party continued under the leadership of Martin Van Buren and Andrew Jackson.
