Andrew Jackson deserves to be on the $20 Bill because of the Jacksonian Democracy, Spoils System, Indian Removal Policy, and State’s Rights .
By: Francesca Ryu
Jacksonian Democracy- Spreading political power to all the people, therefore making sure of a majority rule.
The Jacksonian Democracy allowed there to be less restrictions on voting so that more of the common man could vote.
Yeah...you're right. So Jackson should stay on the $20 Bill.
Spoils System- Giving government jobs/positions to your political supporters.
Did you know that Andrew Jackson placed his political supporters in many government positions?
Wow, what a smart man. He deserves to stay on the $20 Bill.
Why would Jackson shut down the Bank?! He knew it would weaken their economy and not benefit anyone!

War on National Bank/Economic Decisions- Jackson vetoed the renewal of the bank’s charter because he believed that the bank was unconstitutional, this weaken the economy.
Indian Removal Policy- Jackson believed that the government could decide where the Native Americans lived and they had only two choices, to adopt the American culture or moved out towards the West. He also believed that they should not be able to form their own government, as they were living within the borders of the US.
During the election of 1828, Jackson's campaign promoted the concept of majority rule, which became known as the Jacksonian democracy. Since the restrictions on voting eased, the number of voters increased. This expansion helped Jackson win in the presidential election of 1828.
How can people think of removing precious Andrew Jackson from the $20 Bill?!
Yes honey, you're so right! He deserves to be on that bill. He even took care of the Indian problems so well with his removal policy.
Even though Jackson came across conflicts with other people, he stayed calm and did what he believed was right.
Jackson replaced many of the government position with people that were loyal supporters of him and his political party. This was so that he could have government people that could back him up.
State’s Rights- The powers given to the individual states of the US, rather than the whole federal government.
Yeah! He was such a great president they should keep his face on the $20 Bill.
After Jackson vetoed the renewal of the bank for being unconstitutional, he set out to shut down the bank. Eventually, the bank went out of business and Jackson won the war, however now economically there were troubles and the economy became weaker.
Darling...he probably had his reasons. Plus he did many other great things in his presidency so he should still remain on the $20 Bill.
The states took an advantage and took the Native Americans’ land. So the Native Americans protested. This caused Jackson to ask Congress to pass a law that made the Native Americans either moved to the West or follow the state laws. Congress passed this act and they discussed treaties with the Native American to move to the West.
Calhoun, who was from the South, was in favor of the doctrine of nullification and thought that the states should have the right to be able to declare the Congress’s law unconstitutional. This caused conflicts but Jackson thought that the states' shouldn't have that much rights and he kept the Federal Union together.
