Storyboard Text

  • The Election of 1824
  • Apparently, none of us got the majority electoral votes.
  • The next president must be selected by the House of Representatives.
  • The "Corrupt Bargain"
  • Clay, thank you for helping me win the election. I couldn't have done it without you.
  • No need to thank me. You've returned the favor by appointing me as secretary of state.
  • Adams Loses Support
  • How unfair! I deserved to president, unlike Adams who is just a dishonest man.
  • Adams stole the election! He just can't be trusted.
  • In 1824, Clay, Jackson, Adams, and Crawford ran for president. When none of the candidates had enough electoral votes to become president, the House of Representatives had to decide who would be the next president.
  • The Election of 1828
  • I believe in strong state government and I support Andrew Jackson.
  • I favor a strong federal government and I support Adams.
  • After Clay dropped out of the race, he used his role as Speaker of the House defeat Andrew Jackson, who he despised. With Clay's help, John Quincy Adams became president and Adams made Clay the secretary of state.
  • Insults and Accusations
  • Don't you remember the bargain that Adams made with Clay? Adams is a cheater and he always will be!
  • Jackson claimed that the election was unfair, considering. Jackson and his followers believed that Clay and Adams had made a corrupt bargain. This accusation caused many people to believe that Adams was a dishonest man.
  • Jackson Becomes President
  • I am honored to be the president. I would like to thank all those who have supported me.
  • During the election of 1828, the Democrats supported Jackson, as the National Republicans supported Adams. The Democrats favored states' rights and the Nation Republicans favored a strong federal government.
  • At the time of the election, the parties turned to mudslinging. This meant that the parties would insult each other, in hopes of ruining their opponents' reputation.
  • Jackson is bound to lose, just like the last election. That's why you should vote for Adams.
  • Jackson won the election and became the president. He was very popular and he was supported by the common man. The common man was a typical farmer. Many Americans had great respect for Jackson, as he was famous from previous victories in war.
  • Farmers, like us, will always support and respect you, Jackson.
