Storyboard Text

  • Election of 1824
  • Sooo... now what happens ?
  • Well, Jackson, I believe it's up to the House to decide now.
  • A Corrupt Bargain
  • Isn't that, you know, corrupt?
  • Yo, John -- if you make me the Secretary of State, I'll make sure you get chosen as President.
  • Nah, of course not! Anyway, now one will know.
  • Adams Wins
  • What? This isn't fair! I just know that Henry has something to do with this!
  • Hey, Andrew, guess what? I'm the president! Ha!
  • Andrew Jackson, John Quincy Adams, and Henry Clay are all running for president, but no one wins enough electoral votes to be elected. The House of Representatives must choose the president.
  • Election of 1828
  • You smell like sour milk!
  • Well.. your hair is stupid!
  • Henry Clay has taken himself out of running for President, but he makes a deal with Adams to make the House vote for him if he will appoint him Secretary of State.
  • More Voters
  • This is great! We can finally vote, even though we don't actually own land!
  • I guess it's not just us anymore...
  • John Quincy Adams wins the election, but his term is overshadowed by the "corrupt bargain" he'd made with Clay to get the position.
  • Jackson Wins
  • Yeah! Jackson for the win! I love him because I am not fancy, I am a common man!
  • This election was very different from previous elections. First of all, the opponents resorted to mudslinging, which is insulting each other.
  • Also, for the first time, you didn't have to own land to have a vote. You just had to be a white make, which meant that there were more people voting.
  • Jackson won by a landslide because his supporters were the "common man." When John C. Calhoun saw how popular he was, he switched to Jackson's party.
  • Hey, everyone! I'm Calhoun!
  • In your face, National Republicans! I have both won and stolen Calhoun!
