Storyboard Text

  • The Election of 1824
  • We're Jackson, Adams, Crawford, and Clay, and we're running for president in the 1824 election!
  • Favorite Sons
  • I'm Henry Clay of Kentucky!
  • I'm Andrew Jackson of Tennessee!
  • I'm John Quincy Adams of Massachusetts!
  • And we're favorite sons!
  • The Corrupt Bargain
  • Psst... I'll get you the presidency if you make me secretary of state.
  • Hmm... okay, I guess.
  • The people running for the 1824 election. Jackson had a majority of votes, followed by Adams, followed by Crawford, and then followed by Clay. It was actually a relatively close election as no one had a majority of electoral votes. Then, the corrupt bargain won Adams the presidency and "cheated" Jackson.
  • The Election of 1828
  • They were favorite sons, and 2 of them were first and second in the election. Favorite sons were people that were voted for by their home state, not by their party. Their supporters were just people that really liked their states. This showed how elections were a bit more bias because of favorite sons.
  • Mudslinging
  • HEY!
  • John Quincy Adams and Henry Clay made a deal with each other - if Clay used his power as speaker of the house to win Adams the presidency, Adams would make him the secretary of state. This cast a shadow over the Adam's presidency as well as making him get a lot of hate.
  • The Jackson Landslide Victory
  • In the Election of 1828, not only was there more than one competitor, the competitors being Jackson and Adams, but there were also two political parties - Democratic Republicans, and National Republicans. This election was a reemergence of political parties.
  • We're Adams and Jackson, and we're back in action for the 1828 election!
  • In this election, a new tactic appeared on the playing field - mudslinging, which was ruining your opponents reputation through insults. This was the start of a new tactic that is even still used today, by presidential candidates such as Donald Trump.
  • Wait a second... this is very literal mudslinging. Actual mudslinging would be ruining their reputation through insults!
  • Jackson won by a huge majority, with the electoral votes being 178 - 83. This election showed how Jackson received support from not only his home region, but other areas as well. It was a national president, not just a regional president or a favorite son. This was a important step in showing how presidents can get national support.
