Thesis: Yes, I think Andrew Jackson should be on a 20 dollar billSources: BritannicaUS HistoryDahlia Aguirre
What is the Jacksonian Democracy? And how did he use it?
In my opinion, this is one reason why he deserves to be on the 20 dollar bill because he is standing for us commoners
Well, the Jacksonian Democracy is a 19th century political philosophy that expanded suffrage to ALL white men over the age of 21, and restructured a number of federal institutions and he used this to make rights for commoners which was an advantage.
What is the Spoil System? And how did he use it?
In my opinion, this is another great example of why he deserves to be on the 20 dollar bill because he is helping the people who couldn't get good jobs, which is a benefit.
The Spoil System is the practice of a successful political party giving public office to its supporters. Andrew Jackson gave civil servants government jobs in order to keep the support.
What was the Indian Removal Act? And how did he use it?
In my opinion, this is the best example of why he should stay on the 20 dollar bill because he greatly benefited the states and the US as a whole.
The Indian Removal Act was aa law passed so that they could kick out Indians for more land west of the Mississippi River. He used this to get us more land for the US.
What were States Rights and how did he use it?
In my opinion, this is good because it gives more power to the people instead of the states, which gives more supporters.
States Rights are the rights and powers held by individual US states rather than by the federal government. He used this to give more to the commoners and he only supported it when it wasn't federal so his stance was unclear.
What was the Bank War and how was Andrew Jackson involved?
In my opinion, this is a good thing because he made it easier for the common person to get loans etc.
The Bank War was a campaign begun by President Andrew Jackson in 1833 to destroy the Second Bank of the US. He started it because he thought the Bank was not fair to commoners and had a bias.
