After the War of Independence, some institutions such as the Bank of the United States were granted legal personality by the state or federal authorities. Of course, some of them ceased to exist (inc. the Bank), and lost their legal personality.
Did e.g. Jefferson's party (the Democrat-Republicans) ever have the status of a legally recognised entity, at either the state or federal level? Did it cease to have this status, before being resurrected by Jackson?
Edit: The point isn't which party it was; the question would be the same whether it was the Whig, Anti-Federalist, or any other.
