Storyboard Text

  • The Election of 1824 and 1828
  • Come On Henry! Make Kentucky Proud of You!
  • Win this election Jackson! We love you!
  • We believe in you John!
  • It's Up to The House
  • Ok. How should I put this? None of you won the majority of the electoral votes. Jackson you came close but now the House has to decide.
  • A Secret Corrupt Bargain
  • Fine. But I need you to make me Secretary of State!
  • Henry I need your help. We both don't like Jackson. I need you to convince the House to vote me for president.
  • Deal!
  • Henry Clay, Andrew Jackson, John Quincy Adams, and Crawford all ran for president in 1824. Because they were not supported by political parties, all except Crawford were known as favorite sons, meaning that they were supported by their home states. Jackson tried to use his popularity to become president.
  • The President's Shadow
  • In the election, none of the nominees got the majority of electoral votes that was required to win the election. Andrew Jackson got 99 votes giving him plurality. The decision now went to the House of Representatives.
  • Two Parties in 1828
  • In order to make sure Jackson did not become President, Clay agreed to use his speaking influence in Congress to make Adams president. In return he was made Secretary of State. Even though this was unethical, it was perfectly legal. However this backfired on him and Adams lost a lot of support.
  • Personalities and Mudslinging and a New President
  • How glad we are that you Republicans did not win the election. Now our country is safe!
  • The Jacksonian Era
  • You Democrats will ruin our unity that upheld itself for half a century!
  • The corrupt bargain backfired on Adams. Many people, especially Jackson's supporters, were very upset at this turn of events. They also disliked the things Adams wanted like a stronger navy and Congress rarely passed his proposals. Adams' presidency only lasted for one term.
  • Jackson should be president! You are corrupt! You will not have a second term!
  • You Monstrous Brute!
  • In the election of 1828, two new parties arose which were called the Democrats, who favored Jackson and strong state governments, and the Republicans, who favored Adams and preferred a stronger central government. The Age of Good Feelings was now dissipating because there were more divisions between the people.
  • I call for a strong national government so we can stay a unity!
  • No! We must have strong state governments and give more power to the people!
  • This was the first election (of many) were policy was debated. In addition, both parties insulted and destroyed each others reputation which was known as mudslinging. The corrupt bargain raised a lot of support for Jackson, and Calhoun even switched sides. Jackson won by a landslide also because his ability interact with the common man. The Jacksonian Era was about to begin where more differences would arise.
