Storyboard Text

  • The "Peoples President" 
  • All white men may now vote regardless of how much land they own.
  • The Spoils System
  • You are dismissed!
  • Nullification Crisis
  • One of Jackson's first deeds as president was to declare that all white men could vote regardless of how much land they own, because before white men could only vote if they owned a certain amount of land. In the end, it had a very positive impact because more people can have a say in who gets to be their president.   
  • Jackson's Kitchen Cabinet
  • The spoils system was when Jackson dismissed all the qualified, experienced people in the white house and gave the people who helped him and his campaign the jobs instead, giving his cabinet the nickname "kitchen cabinet" 
  • Trail Of Tears
  • The Nullification crisis of 1833 was when Congress created a new tariff that was beneficial for northerners and harmful for the south, two things ended up happening, South Carolina first nullified the tariff and then got a rude awakening because soon after Jackson got authorization to use military force to enforce taxes  
  • The Bank War
  • The kitchen cabinet is a reference to to Jacksons Cabinet because he fired everyone who was "qualified" and hired his family, friends, or just people who helped him with his campaign. This was bad because no one knew what they were doing in the white house.
  • The Trail of Tears was a trail used by Native Americans on their way to Oklahoma after they were removed from their native lands by the military under Jackson's orders, 4,000 Natives died in the process of cold, hunger, or disease. This left a big stain in Jackson's legacy due to how brutally the Natives were treated and how he went against the Supreme Courts orders to leave them alone. 
  • Andrew Jackson believed that the National Bank was corrupt; that it only benefited the rich, so to solve "the problem" he took out all of the bank's money and redistributed it to smaller banks, causing the time of the national bank to end because it could never recover.
