I believe that Andrew Jackson should not be taken off of the 20 dollar bill because he accomplished many things for the people of his country and doesn't deserve to get taken off.
It is a rise for more democracy and political power in American government led by President Andrew Jackson. Jackson was able to help the common man have greater rights. For example, he helped people be able to have the right to vote.
The use of this term makes him worthy of being on the $20 bill because him helping the people out with being able to have greater rights shows that he was selfless and that is a very important aspect that every president needs to have.
A practice of giving government jobs to its supporters. Andrew Jackson used spoil systems to give his supporters a government position.
Jackson giving his supporters these positions show that he is worthy to be on the $20 bill because he was again, being selfless and giving back to his people. I believe he wanted what was best for them and what he did for people shows he was a good man.
An act signed by Andrew Jackson that allowed the president to grant unsettled lands west of the Mississippi in exchange for Indian lands. Jackson used this policy to his advantage since he was able to have the power to relocate Native Americans.
The use of this term makes Jackson worthy of being on the $20 bill because he helped the U.S. in a great way by, gaining more land.
Indian Removal Policy
It is the rights and power belonging to a state. Jackson used this policy to his advantage by being able to reject Calhoun's theory of nullification.
The use of this term makes Jackson worthy of being on the $20 bill because he supported many countries such as Georgia. Jackson supported its jurisdictional dispute with the federal government.
It is a campaign to destroy the Second Bank of the United States begun by Andrew Jackson. Jackson removed all federal funds of the Second Bank and put them to many other state banks.
Jackson felt that the bank was unconstitutional and harmful to states rights and he needed to start a campaign to stop this. The use of this term makes Jackson worthy of being on the $20 bill because he was based on having equal rights.
