Storyboard Text

  • Hi! I'm DaBris Henderson from 4th period. I don't think Andrew Jackson should be on the $20 bill but check out the next slide and I will tell you more.
  • Andrew Jackson he felt that the election was stolen from him and that peoples will were ignored Jackson also felt he represented common men so he gave them the right to vote. I think this was good that he gave people the right to vote because we all deserve to be heard.
  • You came OK lets get started the Jackson Democracy. The act that gave voting rights to common men. Andrew Jackson was the man behind this he felt that the election was stolen from him that the peoples will was being ignored. Jackson felt that he represented common men and John Quincy Adams represented wealthy men and that is why he won the election. Jackson spent the next 4 years gaining support from common men. The next election was very bitter due to vicious personal attacks because of Jackson gaining the votes of common men he won.
  • While campaigning Jackson promised to reconstruct the government to do so he replaced government officials with his supporters. I think it was bad for Jackson to do that because now no one can say that don't agree with his ideas or make his ideas better
  • The practice of giving government jobs to political backers. When Jackson became president it started a new political era and while campaigning he promised to reconstruct the government. To do so Jackson replaced government officials with his supporters. Jackson's opponents say that this was corrupt but he defended it. President Jackson still would have to face issues knows as the status of Native Americans, the rights of the states, and role of banks
  • Jackson had been wanting to get rid of Native Americans for a while unless they were willing to convert to white culture and obey law. I think this was bad because what did the Native Americans do to him they had just as much right to live in america as him.
  • Oh your back for more. The act that forced Native Americans to move west. This came about after gold was found whites began to move to Cherokee land but Cherokee and other tribes protested. To get rid of the problem Jackson asked congress to pass a law that would force Native Americans to move west or obey law. Massachusetts and religious groups disagreed with removal of Native Americans. After a long debate congress passed the Indian Removal Act in 1830.
  • Jackson was clear when opposing the doctrine of nullification but didn't want to lose the south so he asked congress to lower the Tariff. I think this is bad because the states should have a say in the laws that control them so Jackson should have agreed to the doctrine.
  • The problem started with Tariff of Abomination which made southerners very upset they had to pay more for manufactured goods. Tariff of Abomination hit Carolina hard because their economy was having issues John C. Calhoun understood what was happening because he was from there. He came up with using doctrine of nullification. Calhoun was not the first to use it but he did extend it by adding any state could nullify or void law. Jackson didn't allow the doctrine but he asked congress to lower the Tariff but South Carolina still felt it was to high and their leaders secession from the nation.
  • Jackson vetoed the renewal of bank charter he said the bank was unconstitutional. I think it was bad of Jackson to say the bank was unconstitutional when the Supreme Court ruled it was. Well thanks for hearing me out but that's all good night.
  • When congress voted to renew bank charter Jackson vetoed it in a strongly worded message to congress. Jackson said the bank was unconstitutional. Supreme Courts had previously ruled that the bank were constitutional. Then Jackson claimed elected officials had to judge constitutionally of law themselves. Jackson's war against bank was the main issue in the campaign of 1832.
