Storyboard Text

  • Andrew Jackson
  • John Quincy Adams
  • Henry Clay
  • • As a war hero of the War of 1812, Jackson was immensely popular. Receiving 99 electoral votes, victory in the Presidential Election of 1824 was all but guaranteed... until it was realized he needed a majority of electoral votes to win.
  • The son of President John Adams, John Quincy Adams, came out of the Election of 1824 with 84 electoral votes, second to Jackson. Still, with Jackson not receiving majority electoral votes, the House of Representatives would vote on the presidency, which will come to work in Adams' favor.
  • A Kentucky politician, Clay, served as the Speaker of the House. Clay detested Jackson, and was a staunch opponent of his policies. Finishing fourth in the electoral votes, Clay made decisive moves to secure a Jackson loss, and an Adams win.
