  • Hi, i'm Lora Lie, and I think that Andrew Jackson does not deserve to deserve to be on the $20 dollar bill.
  • Andrew Hunt p2
  • Jacksonian Democracy: An idea that spread political power to all the common people and ensuring majority rule.
  • I think Andrew Jackson used the idea for Jacksonian Democracy to get more votes for expansion of voting system. I think this was a good idea, because it set a good voting system idea for the future.
  • Spoils System: An act by Andrew Jackson which he replaced government officials with his supporters.
  • Jackson used the Spoils System idea to get more favoritism in the office for him to avoid impeachment by replacing officials with supporters. I think this was a bad idea because it was unfair to many officials and non-supporters. He basically cheated his way to stay safe by affecting others lives negatively, and that to me, sounds like selfishness.
  • I have to do what is best for the country!
  • Indian Removal Policy: An act established in 1830, in which the government addressed the Indians with treaties that forced the Native Americans to relocate west.
  • I think Andrew used this policy to free up land for the growing U.S.A. It could have gone either way, but I think it was bad. I feel that he should have treated them nicer, because the last thing the U.S. needed was more rebellious forces getting in the way of country development. I feel that sharing the land would have been a better solution.
  • Come in!
  • Um... We need to talk.
  • States Rights: The powers and rights held by single U.S. states rather than by the federal governments. in which both were sectional differences. Congress, later passed a tariff on manufactured goods from southerners, which outraged them and was called th Tariff of Abominations. South Carolina threatened to secede after many debates.
  • Jackson needed to protect our federal union. I think this was a bad idea because it wasn't necessary at that time, and I feel that the states should have been protected, and they weren't, which I felt, started the civil war.
  • Jackson ruled that the idea of recharting the second bank was unconstitutional, and vetoed it, and fought officials over it. I think this was bad because, I don't think it really even said in the constitution, anything specific about it wrong to move the national bank, and he allowed it to go out of business, which might have affected the country, moneywise.
  • War on National Bank/ Economic Decisions: Otherwise known as the bank war, it is referred to the political struggle that started over the recharging of the second bank of the U.S., which Andrew Jackson vetoed and ruled unconstitutional. Jackson fought against the elected officials, and in 1836, on Jacksons second term, the bank went out of business, and Jackson won.
