  • Jackson said all money should be removed from the National Bank, which ended it for good. Some people thought Jackson was being a tyrant.

  • Jackson’s “Kitchen Cabinet”
  • Congress made "Indian Territory" in what is now Oklahoma and pressures tribes to give up existing lands and move there. In 1837, President Martin Van Buren oversaw the removal of over 16,000 Natives West.
  • Jackson as the “People’s President”
  • I represent the common man. Let's expand democracy and make sure more people can vote. All white men can now vote.
  • These people weren't the most qualified, but his friends, family members, and financial supporters. This system of rewarding people who support you with jobs is called "the Spoils System". 
  • Jackson often took advice from friends and unqualified sources, causing his opponents to call his advisors the "Kitchen Cabinet" because they were perceived as being inadequate. The Kitchen Cabinet was a result of the "Spoils System".
  • Jackson expanded voting rights, and the idea that the average person should control Democracy changed American politics forever. Under Jackson, politics became an activity for common people.
