Storyboard Text

  • I think Andrew Jackson should be on the 20 dollar bill because he contributed so much to the people.
  •  Ari Chung
  • Hmm?
  • Andrew Jackson thought the 1824 election was stolen from him and the will of the people had been ignored,so in 1828, Jackson, promoted the concept of majority rule. Since Jackson was for the common man, it gave them a voice in politics, which helped him win the election.
  • Once Jackson was in office he started to replace many of the government officials with his own supporters. He did this because he thought is "broke up one group's hold on government". This shows that Jackson thankful and cared for supporters, so he gave them a high position.

  • Andrew Jackson enforced the Indian Removal Act because the land that was granted to the Cherokee Nation, the land owners wanted the land because of the gold and for settlement reasons. Due to president Jackson enforced this act, he gained more and kept his supports. By removing the Indians, Jackson freed the land up for land owners to gains riches from the land.
  • Jacksonian Democracy - the thought of spreading political power to all people to ensure majority rule
  • Jackson opposed the doctrine of nullification, but he did not want to drive the South out of Union. Once Jackson ran for reelection, he ran without Calhoun and after he won, he made it understandable that he would drive to see that federal laws were obeyed and the Union was preserved. This is one reason he should not be on the 20 dollar bill because he did not respect states rights, so he lost some followers. 
  • Spoils System - the practice of assigning government jobs to political backers / promoters
  • Jackson saw the bank as a symbol of how a privileged class of businessmen abused the will of the common man, so he did not renew the bank as ¨tradition¨. This shows the people that Jackson cared about them and their will, so they followed him. But by doing this, Jackson had done some damage to the economy, which is another reasons he should not be on the $20.
  • Indian Removal Policy - called to arrange treaties with the Native Americans, which would require them to relocate west.
  • States' Rights - rights and powers in the hands of individual US states instead of federal government
  • War on National Bank/Economic Decisions - vetoed the renewal of the bank and thought it was unconstitutional
