Storyboard Text

  • The Elections of 1824
  • Why thank you, Millie.
  • My dad is going to be the PRESIDENT!
  • Congratulations on winning the most popular votes, Andrew!
  • The "Corrupt Bargain"
  • So you see, Adams, I will use my influence as Speaker of the House to defeat Jackson.
  • A very handsome reward, if I do say so myself. Let's do it.
  • If I do this, once you become president you will appoint me as the secretary of state.
  • A Shadow is Cast
  • My first act as President is to create a stronger navy and federal government.
  • What did you just say? I am the President of...
  • WHAAAT?!
  • We know who you are and your little bargain. Congress has decided to reject your ideas. Deal with it.
  • Later, Adams had his first meeting with Congress...
  • Nope. Nuh-uh. No can do, mister.
  • Jackson won the most popular votes, but no candidate received a majority of the electoral votes, giving him a plurality. Under the Twelfth Amendment, when no candidate gets a majority of electoral votes, the House of Representatives selects the president.
  • Election of 1828
  • I represent the National Republicans. We desire a strong central government. We also support federal measures, such as road building and a national bank. This would aid our economy tremendously.
  • After Adam's unsuccessful presidency, Jackson became the president.
  • I don't think that he would a good president... Maybe I should help Jackson.
  • While the House prepared to vote, Clay and Adams made an agreement. Clay would use his influence as Speaker of the House to defeat Jackson and in return, Clay would become secretary of state. With Clay's help, Adams was elected president.
  • When the Mud Flies
  • I made a pamphlet targeting Jackson!
  • ... sold a girl to the Russian leader! Thank you for saving our country from such brutality.
  • Well, you were the obvious choice!
  • Jackson's followers accused the two men of making a corrupt bargain, which — as well as other things — cast a shadow over Adam's presidency. His ideas horrified people who wanted a more limited federal role. Congress turned down many of Adam's proposals.
  • End of an Era
  • The House of Representatives needs to change how the president is elected to prevent events such as this!
  • By 1828 there were two parties: The Democratic-Republicans and the National Republicans. The Democrats supported the new president, Jackson, while the Nationals only backed him up.
  • We shall see whom the people chose.
  • And I represent the Democratic-Republicans. We favor states' rights. Did I mention that we distrust a strong central government? The rights of the people should be protected.
  • During the campaign, both parties resorted to mudslinging, or attempts to ruin their opponents’ reputation with insults. John C. Calhoun switched parties to run with Jackson in the election. Jackson won by a landslide — an overwhelming victory.
  • First of all, these elections showed problems with the House of Representatives and how they elected the president. Also, it changed how the candidates campaign, because of mudslinging.
  • Perhaps, but mudslinging has given me a great advantage over you, young man.
