I need to secure my win to the president so how about i "persuade" Henry Clay.
HHAHAHAHHAHAHAHAHAH got em
our new president of America is...... Johnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnn ADAMS
it was 1824 and no one had a majority in the house so it was down to Andrew Jackson and John Adams, there was going to be a house election to decide who will be the next president.
John adams and Henry Clay had a "private conference" and succeeded in persuading Henry to vote for him since he was very powerful in the house. the bargain for Henry was that he would get his own office and money.
It's time to take my revenge and make john adams regret what he did.
with the powerful help of Henry Clay and the corrupt bargain John Adams was able to secure his vote, Jackson felt that something was up and was filled with the feeling of revenge so for the next 4 years he would be mudslinging opponents campaigning.
you all will get some jobs in office since you supported me and helped me get into office
Jackson campaign to the people was that he was a "common man" and that he would change america rule by the elite to rule by the people but he wasn't a common person at all as he owned a huge plantation and was very rich.
the day that Jefferson became president was the day that all heck was going to break loose.
after jackson got into office he began to replace federal employees with family members and people that supported him and put them into office this was known as the spoils system and is why they call his cabinet the "kitchen cabinet".
