  • Emily Wilson Period 2 I believe Andrew Jackson deserves to be on the 20 dollar bill.
  • Jacksonian Democracy was a majority rule established in the 1828 election between Andrew Jackson and John Quincy Adams. In this election the democrats and republicans were separated. Those who supported Jackson, or a easy way of living were democrats. Those who supported Adams, or wealthy, priviledged easterners, were republicans. The spreading of this political power to the people and guaranteeing majority rule was to be known as Jacksonian Democracy.
  • I think this is good because when Jackson gave the voting rights to average white men, Jackson was thinking about himself and what it did for him, but this resulted in average men getting the right to vote, and in the future also women.
  • Spoils system was the act of when Jefferson was sworn in, he replaced government officials with his followers. This term comes from the comment "To the victor belong the spoils of the enemy." Jackson believed in a government run by the people, while the former president wanted the government ran by well educated leaders. Jackson's opponents fought that the practice was altered. Jackson gaurded it, observing that it ruined ones group's group's grip on government.
  • I think that this was a bad idea because if the government was always on his side because if the government was always on his side if he made a bad decision no one would really say no they would just agree.
  • I think that it was good because he was telling the Native Americans that they need to leave if they are not following the laws.
  • Indian removal policy was one of Jackson's ways of getting rid of Native Americans and moving them west. Jackson gave them two choices, they could stay and become citizens of the United States or move West. The Native Americans were not allowed to have their own governments in the United States borders. Jackson asked congress to pass the law that the Native Americans had to follow the laws or leave. Many supported this and many disagreed. After the raging debate, Congress passed the Indian Removal ct which forced Native Americans to relocate west.
  • Congress passed a bill, called Tariff of Abominations, which was a tax on raw material which made the south very angry. South Carolina threatened to leave and start their own country. Jackson did not want South Caroline to leave and he protested that they should pay any bill he gives them. John C. Calhoun, Jackson's vice president, purposed the Doctrine of Nullification. This gave the states rights to reject any bill that they find unconstitutional. Calhoun did this because he understood what the farmers were the farmers were going through because he once was one himself. Jackson did not agree wit him and this led to a very bad relationship between the two politians.
  • I think it was good and I don't blame Jackson for getting mad because the state threatened to leave unless they got what they wanted.
  • The second National Bank of the united states was run by Nicholas Biddle. Mr.Biddle controlled the banks money supply. President Jackson disliked the Bank because of past experiences and losing money. The Bank made loans to the people of congress. Jackson believed that the banks policies focused on more wealthy people than normal, average people. Biddle asked congress to renew the banks charter and Jackson vetoed the renewal and claimed the bank was unconstitutional. Jackson wanted to ruin the bank before its charter ended. Biddle made it harder to borrow money and this led to economic issues which was exactly what he wanted. This didn't faze Jackson and the bank eventually went out of business.
  • I think that what Jackson did was good and closing down the bank was good because they were going to closed down anyways and they weren't making good decisions with the money.
