  • Jackson as the "People's President"
  • Spoils System
  • Jackson's "Kitchen Cabinet"
  • After the "Corrupt Bargain" of 1824, Jacosn spent the next four years campaigning to be president. Jackson was finally elected 1828. He was elected by the "common people." (Laborers, farmers, frontiersman)  Jackson called himself the spokesperson of the "common people". Jackson believed in expanding democracy and making sure more people could vote.
  • The nulification crisis of 1828-1833
  • Thsi system of rewarding people who support you with jobs is called the "Spoils System"
  • Indian removal act and "Trail of Tears"
  • Jackosn often took advice from friends and unqualified sources, causing his opponents to call his advisors the "Kitchen Cabinet". The Kitchen Cabinet was teh result of the "Spoil Systems.
  • The bank war
  • Four years after the tariff of abominations, a new tax angered the South. South Carolina passed a law "nulifying" or cancellling the new tax, and threatning to seced from the Union if the government made them follow it. Jackson passed the Force Bill to use Federal troops to enforce the law. They compromised, but nullification remained a looming issue.
  • Eager to spread Westward, many land-hungry white settlers pressured Congress to pass the Indian Removal Act of 1830. Congress made "Indian Territory" in what is now Oklahoma and pressured tribes to give up existng lands and  move there. In 1837 President Martin Van Buren oversaw the removal of over 16,000 Natives West.  Over 1/4th of the people moved died of starvation, exposure, and diseases.
  • Jackson's final battle was aganist teh second bank of the United States, which believed was unconstitutional, even though the court was absed McCulloch VS Maryland had found it to be constitutional. At the beginning of his second term, Jackson said all money should be removed from the National Bank, essentially ending the bank for good. While many liked this move, some thought Jackson was abusing his own power and being a tyrant.
