Storyboard Text

  • Alex Cano Period 4 I think Andrew Jackson deserves to be on the $20 bill.
  • Andrew Jackson used this idea as a strategy to win the election, he convinced people to vote for him by saying things they wanted to hear such as more rights for the common people. I thing this was a good thing because the "common people" barely had any rights at that time.
  • Andrew Jackson felt that the 1824 election had been stolen from him, him and his supporters were extremely upset at the outcome. This caused Andrew Jackson to spend the next four years trying to persuade people's voting. He told people what they wanted to hear such as more rights for the common people. He also promoted majority rule which actually became known as Jacksonian Democracy. His crusading led him to an overwhelming victory in the election of 1828 against John Quincy Adams.
  • Andrew Jackson used this idea as a way to break up one group's hold on government by replacing government officials with his supporters. I think this was a good idea because it may allow them to work better togehter.
  • Andrew Jackson had been a firm supporter of moving the Native Americans west of the Mississippi. Jackson asked congress to pass a law that required Native Americans to either move west or submit to state laws. Many Americans disagreed and wanted this to not pass. The Native Americans told him "the perils and hardship of the wilderness." This meant that it would be rough/difficult time without their knowledge of the wilderness.
  • Andrew Jackson used this idea to rid all Native Americans and move them west of the Mississippi. I think this was a bad idea because the Native Americans had been settled there for a very long time.
  • State Rights had been going on since the independence of Great Britain. The debate for states rights was between Senate Webster and Hayne doctrine of nullification. Hayne had stated that people who try to take power from the federal government are the real enemies. Webster, however wanted freedom and everyone to unite. Jackson said that the federal government was the one that had the power.
  • Jackson used this idea as a way for states to gain rights from the federal government. I think this was a good idea because if the states hadn't gained rights then conflict may have occurred.
  • Congress had voted to renew the banks charter, but Jackson vetoed the renewal. Jackson claimed the bank was unconstitutional and it favored few at the cost of many. The National Republican Party and it's candidate, Henry Clay, called Jackson a tyrant and that he wanted too much power. During Jackson's second term he set out to destroy the bank before it's charter ended in 1836. Eventually, the bank went out of business and Jackson had won the war.
  • Andrew Jackson used this idea as a way to please more citizens than just the rich ones. I think this was a good idea because the common people were always secluded and this was a good way to bring the people together.
  • A new political era that began at Jackson's inauguration. He promised to reform the government, he did that by replacing government officials with his supporters. Jackson's opponents argued that the new practice was corrupt. Jackson defended his idea by saying that it broke up one's hold on government. "Spoils System" comes from a statement "to the victor belong the spoils of the enemy" the word 'spoils' meaning possessions.
