Storyboard Text

  • Andrew Jackson
  • John Quincy Adams
  • Henry Clay
  • He was considered a hero of the war of 1812 against England. He was very popular. In the election of 1824, he received 99 electoral votes. He believed that his won for president was guaranteed but, he then realized he needed a majority of electoral votes to win. He lost the vote created by the house of representatives. He saw it as a "corrupt bargain" and saw it as corruption and favoritism.
  • He was the son of John Adams. He ran for president in the election of 1824 with 84 electoral votes, second to Jackson. Since Adams didn't have the majority of the votes, the House of Representatives would vote for Adams because of his father who was before, president of the United States. By Adams forming an alliance called the New England- Ohio valley with Clay, new supporters came to Adams favor. BY declaring Clay as his Secretary of state, a corrupt bargain secured Adam a victory in 1824
  • Henry Clay was a Kentucky politician. He served as the Speaker of the House. Clay detested Jackson, and a bad opponent of his policies. Finishing 4th in the electoral votes, Clay made smart and careful moves to secure Jackson a loss, and Adams to win. As he accepted loss, Clay and his supporters swayed the vote towards John Quincy Adams for president in 1824. Adams became president of 1824, and Clay was claimed as Secretary of state, leaving Jackson completely out. Clay really didn't like Jackson. He didn't like the things he wanted to do if Jackson became president.
