Storyboard Text

  • President Andrew Jackson promised the citizens that he would "equal protection and equal benefits" for all Americans—at least, all white American men. Jackson's promise reflected the spirit of the times.
  • Only men who owned property or paid taxes could vote.
  • By the 1820s, many states had loosened these requirements. White male sharecroppers, factory workers, and others could now participate in the political process.
  • Women still could not vote.
  • African Americans and Native Americans had few rights of any kind.
  • They argued that ordinary citizens could do most government jobs.
  • They were disturbed that the federal government had become a bureaucracy (byuh • RAH • kruh • see), a system in which nonelected officials carry out laws.
