Storyboard Text

  • Jackson as President
  • Jackson will bring equality for all!
  • Jackson for president!
  • We want Jackson!
  • Improving Democracy- Voting Rights
  • Under Jackson, I don't have to own land to vote.
  • You can't vote! You're only a sharecropper. You don't own land.
  • Improving Democracy- Elections
  • As a Massachusetts citizen, do you have a different preference for the Republican candidate?
  • This man does not support states' rights. How about this one?
  • Andrew Jackson supported the common people.
  • Improving Democracy- Spoils
  • Pleasure meetin' you, sir... but, what's a secretary of state?
  • Mr. Secretary of State, I am sorry to say that your work hasn't pleased me. Meet your replacement: Mr. Johnson, a sailor from Rhode Island.
  • He let white males who were not land owners vote.
  • The Tariff of Abominations
  • But that's not fair to the Northern States!
  • Okay, okay, I'll lower the tariff. But I absolutely refuse to let you nullify it!
  • Ordinary citizens, rather than members of Congress, get to vote on electors and presidential candidates.
  • Jackson's Legacy
  • I always knew that man would make a better president.
  • Jackson replaced the bureaucrats in official positions with his supporters, who were not necessarily qualified.
  • To appease Southerners, Jackson lowered the protective tariff, but this angered Northerners. Then, when Southerners tried to nullify the tariff, Jackson refused, even though he had previously argued for states' rights.
  • Traitor! You said you support states' rights! You're biased toward the Northern states!
  • Equality at last!
  • Jackson made the political system more democratic. During his presidency, a feeling of equality spread through the nation. However, some of his decisions, like not nullifying the Tariff of Abominations, created conflict between different groups.
  • Well, sort of.
  • This is true democracy!
  • Mr. Johnson's clueless!
  • Jackson lied to us!
