Hannah CastielII believe that Andrew Jackson should not be on the $20 bill because all of the decisions he made were just for him to benefit not the country.Sources: My notes and US history
I remember that! He took away the national bank and made a new bank for the states.
1.Have you guys heard of Andrew Jackson?
Jacksonian Democracy was when Andrew Jackson gave political power to the common people. This makes Jackson a bad president because he used this to make everyone vote for him and not to help his country.
2.Yeah! He's the president who let common people vote! But if I remember correctly, he only did it to make the public like him!
3.What a bad president!
He only let people into government positions if they were supporting him with money.
The spoils system was when Andrew Jackson gave government positions to people who backed him politically with money or support. This made him a bad president because it didn't allow people who worked hard for their jobs to have them and just rich people had the jobs.
Oh, and remember the spoils system?
He didn't give jobs to people who actually worked for it.
The war on the national bank was when Andrew Jackson destroyed the national bank, declaring it unconstitutional and making a bank for each state instead. This made him a bad president because the whole economy collapsed and a dollar became worthless.
What about thewar on the national bank?
Hmmm...I can't remember that one.
The Indian removal act was an act authorizing the president to remove the Indians from their land. This made Andrew Jackson a bad president because he forced natives to move out lf their homeland just for gold.
Alright class, now who remembers what the Indian removal act is?
That's so easy! We were just talking about Andrew Jackson!
States rights was the power held by the states rather than the government and the states could reject a federal law if they considered it unconstitutional. This made Jackson a bad president because he used it to make the people like him more and not to benefit the country.
class, what is states rights?
Easy, Peasy! I'm so glad we talked about Andrew Jackson before class!
I need to go to the bathroom so bad, I cant think!
