I am James Monroe, 5th President of the United States and Europeans, we are warning you to stay away and stop trying to take our land. Leave us alone
The Monroe Doctrine was passed after America realized that Spain and other countries were planning on colonizing their country.
The Election of 1824 Candidates
Hi I'm Henry Clay
I'm Andrew Jackson
I'm William H. Crawford
And I'm John Adams
Henry Clay placed 4th of 4, therefore preventing him from having a shot at presidency. However his support for Adams earned him a spot as his secretary of state.
Dang it I didn't get enough votes! I suppose I'll support Adams.
The fact that Adams was elected due to the support of Clay, and then that he chose him as his secretary of state, made people call this a corrupt bargain. Supporters of Jackson were very angry about this and many people began to look towards Jackson as the leader for people who felt left out.
Thank you all! I now pronounce Henry Clay as my secretary of state.
Deal with it.
Based on the votes and the support of Henry Clay, John Adams is to be our new president!
This is a corrupt bargain!!!
I now will introduce a new plan from the ideas of Alexander Hamilton.
Henry Clay introduces the plan of the American System, containing 3 branches to keep each other balanced. This system taxed all foreign goods, protecting the economy from the cheap British goods. It emphasized a strong federal government.
I believe our federal government needs more power for a stronger economy.
