  • Lunch
  • As Speaker of the House, I do not think it is OK if I continue in this election, I will withdraw.
  • That sounds like a good plan.
  • I agree, it would not be acceptable. But, if you convince the House to vote for me, I will make you Secretary of State.
  • John Quincy Adams is the President of the United States!
  • The Corrupt Bargain
  • This was a corrupt bargain! Do not trust John Quincy Adams, he will not be a good president!
  • Yay! I shall name Henry Clay my Secretary of State.
  • During the Election of 1824, nobody got enough Electoral Votes, so the decision was left to the House.
  • Adams' Proposal
  • Jackson
  • I vote no as well. Your idea does not pass.
  • Adams
  • Crawford
  • I vote no.
  • Clay
  • To make himself president, John Quincy Adams made a deal with Henry Clay. If Henry used his influence as Speaker of the House to defeat Jackson and make Adams President. In return, Adams would make Clay Secretary of State.
  • Mudslinging - The Election of 1828
  • You shouldn't be president! You have a prickly and stubborn personality!
  • When the results of the election were announced, Jackson was outraged. Jackson accused Adams of making a corrupt bargain, and this cast a shadow over Adams while he was president.
  • The Results
  • How could this happen?!
  • The new President of the United States is Andrew Jackson! He won by a landslide vote.
  • Congress turned down many of Adams' proposals and he would not be elected for a second term. Adams' supporters were called the National Republicans and they supported a strong federal government.
  • I propose that we have a stronger federal government.
  • During the Election of 1828, both John Quincy Adams and Andrew Jackson resorted to mudslinging - the practice of trying to ruin your opponents by exchanging insults.
  • You shouldn't be the President! You are a donkey!
  • Andrew Jackson won the election of 1828. His presidency changed America because he changed the voting requirements, he created the spoils system, he had nominating conventions, and he was the leader of the Democratic-Republican Party.
  • Yay!
