Andrew Jackson Project By: Christian Cruz Thesis: I believe Andrew Jackson should be left on the 20 dollar bill, because of all the good deeds he did while being president. Sources: Creating America Textbook, Library of Congress, Shmoop
Jacksonian Democracy is a reason why he should remain on the 20 dollar bill.
Andrew used this to his advantage by getting the votes from the poor males, causing him to win the election of 1828.
Jacksonian Democracy was majority rule and the idea of spreading political power to every white male.
Another reason why Andrew Jackson should be on the 20 dollar bill is because of the spoils system.
The spoils system is when Andrew gave political jobs to his political backers.
He used this by having his supporters with him in the government, that way no-one would go against him
Then there's the Indian Removal Policy. This policy forced Native Americans to migrate west, giving the U.S. their previous land.
This is the only event in which I don't agree with because he sacrificed our relationship with Native Americans for land.
Not to mention, states rights. States rights allowed states to choose their own rights.
Andrew Jackson agreed with states rights because he felt that there were strict limits to the government's authority under the constitution.
And last but not least, The War on National Bank / Economic Decisions. Andrew Jackson decided to start this war because he thought the national banks were unconstitutional.
Andrew Jackson won the war. These are all the reasons why Andrew Jackson should remain on the 20 dollar bill.
