Storyboard Text

  • Jackson as President
  • Yes, you have, due to the support of the common and your fame from battles.
  • I have now become the president of the United States, after that cheating John Quincy Adams!
  • A Room
  • I believe I'd like to change politics in America, I'd like the people to feel equality among each other.
  • Yes, that may be wise.
  • Newspaper Page
  • I hope more people can vote, soon.
  • I can vote now!
  • Jackson has changed politics by trying to make politics more democratic. There was was more democratic process for nominating political candidates & more people could vote. Suffrage, or the right to vote, changed during the early 1800s. In 1815 many states relaxed the property requirements for voting. In the 1820s, people who had not been allowed to vote, such as white male sharecroppers, voted for the first time. By 1828, 22 of the 24 states changed their constitutions to allow the people, rather than the state legislatures, to choose presidential electors.
  • Jackson was a popular president, one reason being that he was very much supported especially by common man. He also gained popularity by his fame from the defeat of Creek Nation, as well as Britain during the War of 1812.
  • A Room
  • Would you like to work with me?
  • May I, President Jackson?
  • During Jackson's first term, a spirit of equality spread throughout the American politics.
  • The Public
  • 1828
  • We are now able to elect our own presidential electors!
  • Andrew Jackson has begun to make politics more democratic, which means there was more democratic process, & more people could now vote.
  • The Public
  • Many of Jackson's federal workers were replaced by his supporters. This was known as the spoils system, which was a distribution of civil service jobs to political patrons.
  • By the time it was 1828, 22 out of the 24 states allowed the people rather than the state legislatures to choose presidential electors.
  • Yes, but we still have two states who do not have those rights.
  • Jackson's supporters had abandoned the caucus system, where political candidates were chosen by committees made of members of the Congress.
  • Caucus no more!
  • That's right
