  • No! Andrew Jackson does not deserve to be on the $20 bill!
  • Andrew Carrero Period 2
  • Jacksonian Democracy: Andrew Jackson wanted more rights for men. He was furious that he lost the previous election so he tried giving more people the right to vote so he has a better chance at winning. So he fought for more democracy in the american government in the 1830's. He wanted to spread political power to all people.
  • By By Andrew Jackson giving voting rights to common people it made them vote for him and now they feel equal with that right.
  • I think this is good because the people can vote now and it made them feel equal.
  • Spoils System: Since Andrew Jackson took office he had promised that he will recreate the government. So the started to replace some officials with his supporters.He called this a practice of giving government jobs to political backers.His opponents said that this practice was corrupt but Andrew defended his argument.
  • Jackson gave his supporters the jobs of the government officials.
  • I think this was a horrible idea because now that wasn't equal and what if they didn't know what they were doing so they would mess everything up.
  • Indian Removal Party: As white people invaded Native Americans territory they made treaties. With those treaties they traded them for land in the west. With the treaties they signed they had to move to the Oklahoma and parts of Kansas and Nebraska.That area was known as Indian Territory.
  • I think its a bad because the americans are kicking out the Indians from their own territory which isn't fair.
  • Jackson gave the Native Americans a choice to stay but if they did they had to live the american culture and they couldn't make their government within the nation aka the U.S and if they didn't want to stay they were told to leave and so they did.
  • States Rights: Since the independence of Britain the states rights was a thing.This debate had two opponents Daniel Webster and Robert Y. Hayne.Both of them having different beliefs this became one of the greatest debates in American history.Hayne argued a legal way to defend and keep their freedom.Robert HAyne defended nullification and argued that it gave states a legal way to defend and keep their freedom.
  • This was a bad because it was unfair the state could demand people what to do.This tool power away from citizens.
  • Webster was fighting for the power of the federal government.Hayne was fighting for the states power.Andrew Jackson gave the federal government the power.
  • War on National Bank/Economic Decisions: Jefferson thought that the bank had too much power and lost money so he went against it.When he was elected that was the main issue of his presidency.Other people said that jefferson had too much power.Later on that term he wanted to destroy the bank so then the bank ran out of business.
  • I think this was a good because it wasn't fair for the middle or lower class.They'll need the money more not the wealthy.
  • Nicholas Biddit wanted a bank but it only benefited the rich and Andrew Jackson didn't like that.So for the people who needed to borrow money because they weren't wealthy was hard because of Nicholas.At the end the bank ran out of money.
