Storyboard Text

  • John Quincy Adams and the Corrupt Bargain
  • This is a corrupt bargain! Unfair!
  • Tariff of Abomination
  • This should help boost our economy.
  • Jackson 1st Election
  • The poor like me should also have a voice.
  • Andrew Jackson won the popular vote, but John Quincy Adams bribed his friends in government to vote for him. Adams won the elections, Jackson said it was a corrupt bargain.
  • South Carolina Nullification
  • This tax is cruel and favors the North while us in the south suffer!
  • The Tariff of Abomination put a heavy tax on imported goods. The idea was to make it so that people would buy mostly from the United States rather than another country. This benefited the north and hurt the south.
  • Worcester vs. Georgia
  • What happened to our treaty?
  • Jackson won the elections against John Quincy Adams and is trying to promote the poor and help them have power instead of just the rich and educated running everything.
  • Trail of Tears
  • President Andrew Jackson has ordered us to escort you past the Mississippi River.
  • Because of the Tariff of Abominations, South Carolina was very angry and declared it unconstitutional. They nullified the tax, but Jackson still wanted to enforce it. They soon came up with a comprimise saying that S.C. will pay a small portion of the tax for several years.
  • But it is still a law passed by Andrew Jackson that we have to obey!
  • Georgia wanted to take the land that the Cherokee lived in but Worcester, the Cherokee leader, said it was unconstitutional. The U.S. had made a treaty with them if Georgia took there land it would violate the treaty.
  • The court ruled in Worcester's favor but despite that, Andrew Jackson still ordered the Cherokee to move west. He gave them a few days to pack up, but then grew impatient and ushered them out with troops.
