  • No, Andrew Jackson should not be on the $20 bill because the only good thing he did out of the 5 terms was create Jacksonian Democracy but the rest of them a lot of people didn’t like.
  • Ever since we have been in space I haven't used money, I wonder if I'll even use this $20 bill.
  • Speaking of the $20 bill, do you think Andrew Jackson deserves to be on it?
  • History Textbook
  • Jacksonian Democracy - The idea that power should be spread to all the people.
  • Andrew Jackson did believe that the government shouldn't be ruled by a small group of people.
  • This seems like something worthy of being on the $20 bill.
  • Spoils System - The system in which public offices hire members of their own party for advantages.
  • But he used the spoils system when he was elected to hire government members only because they were loyal to him
  • That's not that bad.
  • Indian Removal Policy - The policy that gave the president the power to grant unsettled lands west of the Mississippi in exchange for Indian lands within existing state borders.
  • But Andrew Jackson signed the Indian removal policy which let the white men get gold in lands owned by the Indians.
  • State’s Rights - The rights that are held by individual states and not by the federal government.
  • Andrew Jackson also did not want the states to have a lot of individual rights and wanted their rights to be held by the federal government because he wanted them to be unified and not independent.
  • War on National Bank/Economic Decisions - Andrew Jackson vetoed the renewal of the charter of the bank because he thought it was unconstitutional. Because he did this, the economy was weakened. Jackson later tried to shut down the bank.
  • He even vetoed the renewal of the charter of the bank because he thought it was unconstitutional. How can he be on the $20 if he tried getting rid of the bank???
  • That is a good point.
