This chapter focuses on Lieutenant John A. Van Buren, who had begun his public life with his appointment as an ensign in Abraham Van Buren's militia company in 1790; he would rise to the command of this company in 1796 and would be a stalwart of the Clintonian–Jeffersonian cause for the next decade. Certainly his sentiments on the Otsego crisis were shared by Abraham and his wider Van Buren relations. The Otsego election crisis of 1792 was a profound test of the evolving civil fabric of the state of New York, as procedures of deliberation, election, and lawmaking settled into a stable post-Revolutionary routine. Between the chartering of the county in April 1786 and the ratification of the constitution of a new federal national government in late July 1788, citizenship was redefined in relationship to both local structures and a new national identity.
