Storyboard Text

  • The Election of 1824
  • My name is Andrew Jackson and I am running with the Democratic Party.
  • My name is John Quincy Adams and I am running with the National Republican Party.
  • Jackson Takes Office
  • "Fellow-Citizens: About to undertake the arduous duties that I have been appointed to perform by the choice of a free people, I avail myself of this customary"
  • Voting Rights Change
  • That's great. I can vote now.
  • You're the best President Jackson.
  • With voting suffrage changed, white male share croppers, factory workers, and others will now be allowed to vote.
  • Thank you, President Jackson.
  • In the election of 1828, Andrew Jackson runs for President with the Democratic Party (with John C. Calhoun as his Vice President,) against John Quincy Adams (running for reelection,) who was with the National Republican Party.
  • The Spoils System
  • This is a new age for America.
  • On behalf of myself and my fellow Democrats, I now usher in the Spoils System into the United States.
  • Andrew Jackson holds his Presidential Inaugural Address at the White House on March 4, 1829. After his Inaugural Address, Jackson allows all of his followers to come into the White House's reception for a very large party.
  • Abandoning the Caucus System
  • That's great. None of us like the Caucus System anyways.
  • We have officially abandoned the Caucus System.
  • During Jackson's first term, suffrage, or the right to vote, changed to be more relaxed. Many states in the Union adopted this new relaxed voting suffrage by reducing the property requirement to vote. With the new voting suffrage, white male sharecroppers, factory workers, and many others were allowed to vote.
  • Nominating Conventions
  • America is only changing for the better. I hope the rest of America's future turns out to be as good as this.
  • America will now use Nominating Conventions to select a party's presidential candidate.
  • To shake up the federal bureaucracy, Jackson and the Democrats issue in the Spoils System. The Spoils System allows ordinary citizens handle any government job.
  • Andrew Jackson and his political supporters abandon the unpopular Caucus System. In the Caucus System, major political candidates were chosen by committees made up of members of Congress.
  • Andrew Jackson and his political supporters decide to replace the Caucus System with Nominating Conventions. In Nominating Conventions, delegates from the states select a party's presidential candidate. To sum it up, America has changed as a result of these events by allowing many more Americans to participate in the government of the United States, which is something that continues to improve to this day.
