Storyboard Text

  • Andrew Jackson was a hero of the War of 1812. He was very popular and he received 99 electoral votes. He felt as if he would most definitely be president until it was stated that he needed the majority of electoral votes. In the end, the House did not choose Jackson as president.
  • John Quincy Adams was second to Andrew Jackson, having 84 electoral votes. Even though he didn't have majority electoral votes, the House of Representatives chose Adams to be president.
  • Henry Clay was a Kentucky politician and he was the Speaker in the House. Clay was in fourth in the electoral votes and since he did not like Andrew Jackson, he made sure he did not win.
  • "If it wasn't for The House I would be president!!" You showed Adams favoritism, but you will reap what you sow.
  • Have your supporters join my supporters and make me president.
  • I will make you Secretary of State.
  • DEAL!
  • If I do, what will I get in return?
  • I HATE ANDREW JACKSON so as my supporters, you have to go out and vote for John Quincy Adam!
