Storyboard Text

  • The Election of 1824
  • John Quincy Adams, Henry Clay, Andrew Jackson, and William Crawford running for president.
  • The Corrupt Bargain
  • OK!!!!
  • John Quincy Adams' Presidency
  • Thank you for the help with gaining me the presidency, but congress won't work with me!
  • Sorry to hear that, but I'm just happy that you named me Secretary of State in return for the help.
  • All runners were favorite sons, or they were supported by their home state, not their party necessarily. This is significant because it made the voting a close call.
  • The Election of 1828
  • Henry Clay wanted John Quincy Adams to win instead of Andrew Jackson, so in return for a seat of power, he used his seat in congress to help Adams. This is significant because it led to less support of Adams during his presidency.
  • Mudslinging and The Landslide Victory
  • *Sighs loudly*
  • Thank you voters, for choosing ME to be your next president! I can't believe how much I won by!
  • Because of Clay and Adams' corrupt bargain, Adams lost congressional support. They turned down his proposals and overrode his vetoes. This ultimately made Adams have the presidency without being a true president.
  • The Beginning of Jackson's Presidency
  • Honey! I won the election!
  • I saw! This is going to be great! The people love you so much!
  • The only candidates for the election of 1828 were Andrew Jackson and John Quincy Adams. Jackson had the support of the new political party, Democratic-Republican party, or Democrats, and Adams had the support of the National- Republicans. However, Adams' term as president helped Jackson win.
  • Andrew Jackson and John Quincy Adams running for presidency in 1828
  • In 1828, people resorted to mudslinging, or trash-talking, the opposing party to gain support for their own. Jackson won the presidency in a landslide. This is important because, although Jackson had much support anyway, the corrupt bargain between Adams and Clay played a major part in getting Jackson elected.
  • Your party sucks!
  • When Jackson became president, he had support of much of America. He had this support because he knew what it was like to be poor, and he related to the common person. He also led in a way that people like. This helped his presidency grow and have a positive effect on America
