Jackson was elected in 1828 by the "common people". He called himself the spokesperson of the "common man". After he was elected the Virginia presidents and northern money men were no longer in charge and the federalist and democratic-republican parties emerged.

the cabinet is the head of each department of the executive branch. The cabinet advises the president.Jackson's opponents called it the kitchen cabinet because he often took advice from friends and unqualified sources. The kitchen cabinet was a result of the spoils system.
The Bank War
After the tariff abominations, a new tax angered the south. South Carolina then passed a law "nullifying" or cancelling the new tax, threatening to secede from the Union if they were forced to follow it.
Many white settlers that wanted to spread westward pressured congress to pass the Indian removal act of 1830. Congress made present day Oklahoma "indian territory" and made tribes give up existing lands and move there. All of them went except the cherokee tribe that refused but was later forced to move.
the last battle that Jackson fought was against the Second Bank of the United States. he believed that it was unconstitutional even though it was found to be constitutional through the McCulloch VS Maryland. He removed all of the money from the national bank and ended it for good. Some people thought he was abusing his power, but others liked the move.
