I hope that Congress has the right mind to pick Andrew Jackson as president. He is the best hero and leader I have ever seen.
Nobody won the majority of the electoral votes! This will now go to Congress.
Two Weeks Before the Election
If you want to be president, then I get to be Secretary of State!
Election of 1824 #2
The Sixth President of the United States will be John Quincy Adams!
This election ended with a three way tie, since nobody won out the majority of votes. Later, John Quincy Adams and Henry Clay teamed up to beat Andrew Jackson.
Jackson won! He is finally representing us common people.
In exchange for Henry Clay's influence in Congress, and his withdraw from presidency, John Quincy Adams made sure to him that Clay would become his Secretary of State if he became president.
Jackson makes me so angry. The only reason he won president, was because he preached to us Southerners that he would give out more states' rights. Now, he's just giving himself more power!
This act of when Adams and Clay teamed up was called the "corrupt bargain". This made Jackson and the rest of the country doubt him as a reliable leader.
Significance of the Elections of 1824 and 1828
Election of 1824
Election of 1828
Later in the 1828 election, people voted based on personality, and rather than political knowledge. Andrew Jackson got his revenge by winning by a landslide against Adams. Jackson was all about states' rights.
Yes, and I heard that he will help us state's people.
After Jackson took office, he realized that more federal government power was needed. This went against him, and made himself look like a hypocrite. This made the south and western people, which voted him, very unhappy.But, from all of this enough people still liked him, so he later got reelected.
Us northerners love him. The controversy of John Quincy Adams let our government do anything. The fact that he is getting more federal power is amazing!
The Elections of 1824 and 1828 provided much different types of drama. The election of 1824 showed much corruptness within the government, when Henry Clay helped Adams win as president. In the election of 1828, people started picking based on personalities. This was the first time, people started doing major advertisements, and mocking their opponents. There was much significance in the Elections of 1824 and 1828.
