Storyboard Text

  • Elections of 1824 and 1828
  • I'm excited for the election, I heard that most of the candidates were favorite sons.
  • Yes, my husband was speaking to me about this, I like the candidate named Andrew Jackson.
  • The Cheat for the Presidency
  • I got the most votes! Although I didn't get the majority of electoral votes I think I might win!
  • HC- We should use my power as Speaker of the House to get you elected, but only if you promise that you will get me the spot as secretary of state. JQA- Deal!
  • I am the new president, and I would like a strong navy and federal government!
  • Adams wins the Election
  • Boo!
  • John C. Calhoun
  • Boo Adams!
  • This crowd is full of my supporters!! They are called the Democratic-Republicans!
  • The election of 1824 was between Henry Clay, John Quincy Adams, Andrew Jackson, and William Crawford. Of these men, three of them were favorite sons, meaning that their home states supported them rather than the national party. This was important because nobody got more than half of the electoral votes, because only their home states supported them.
  • Election of 1828- Two Parties Once Again
  • Mine too!!! But mine are called the National Republicans!!
  • Henry Clay used his power as Speaker of the House to get John Quincy Adams into office, and in return he was promised the job as secretary of state. None of the candidates got a majority of the electoral votes so the House of Representatives had to elect a president. This was important because it created a shadow over Adams' Presidency, and it was unethical but not illegal.
  • Mudslinging
  • Andrew Jackson
  • Henry Clay
  • John Quincy Adams
  • Adams had a shadow over his presidency because he didn't win from popularity. The fact that he favored a strong navy and federal government did not help him be popular with the people or with congress. This was important because it made congress turn down many of Adams proposal, and ruined his presidency.
  • America Today
  • The Election of 1812 was between two parties. The Democratic-Republicans supported Jackson and favored states' rights and didn't like strong federal government, and the National Republicans supported Adams and favored a strong central governments. This was important because it changed how we voted to elect the president.
  • Yay!!! Jackson!!!!!
  • Vs.
  • Yay!! Adams!!!
  • The election of 1828 was the first time the supporters attempted to ruin each others campaigns by mudslinging. They would make things up in attempts to do this, and they would hand out pamphlets. This is important because present day we see the candidates hiring private investigators to find something that will make them have less supporters and add more supporters for them.
  • Get your pamphlets here, Adams has kidnapped a girl, read all about it!
  • No, Jackson kills helpless civilians! Get your Pamphlets here!
  • As a result of these events, America has changed on how it votes, and the political parties. We have now made a law that you can not be the Speaker of the House and also run for president, and this has influenced how people don't have bad presidencies because of how they won the election. Additionally, we have gotten two parties that have stayed worked for our country.
