Storyboard Text

  • President Jackson is NOT worth being on the $20 bill! My two wonderful sources helped me realize that. I'm going to meet some of my friends that agree with me.
  • TCI
  • Jacksonian Democracy: the idea that the common people should control the government.
  • His use of this topic does not make him worthy of being on the $20 bill because he used it for his own personal gain to win the election instead of doing it for the American citizens.
  • I agree with him over there. Andrew Jackson used this topic so that any white man could vote, which allowed him to win the presidency election.
  • Spoils System: the practice of rewarding political supporters with government jobs.
  • Andrew Jackson replaced me with one of his democrat supporters! He doesn't deserve to be on the $20 bill, he cost me my job!
  • Indian Removal Act: This law allowed the president to make treaties in which American Indians in the East traded their lands for new territory on the Great Plains.
  • Andrew Jackson kicked me out of my home! He got on the $20 bill for ruining our lives!
  • States' Rights: the rights and powers held by individual US states rather than by the federal government.
  • Andrew Jackson supported states' rights during the Indian Removal Act, but completely ignored them when South Carolina threatened secession! He got on the $20 bill for almost losing a state. Makes sense, right?
  • War on National Bank/Economic Decisions: when Andrew Jackson vetoed the renewal of the national bank because he believed it had too much money and power.
  • Because of what Andrew Jackson did, our nation's economy is suffering. How can a man that destroyed the national bank get put on the $20 bill?
