  • Thesis: Andrew Jackson does not deserve to be on the $20 Bill he was a selfish man that did things that mostly only benefited himself and his presidency.
  • Jaksonian Democracy: A movement for democracy in American government in the 1830s. Led by President Jackson, this movement championed greater rights for the common man or only white men and was opposed to any signs of aristocracy in the nation.
  • Jackson used this to his advantage to sway more voters and to people to more white men not just the rich. I don't feel that this term should make him worthy of being on the $20 bill because this term didn't help everyone it only helped white men which isn't fair
  •  Spoils system: a practice in which public offices with their emoluments and advantages are at the disposal of the victorious party for its own purposes and could give government jobs to his political backers or just people who he just wanted to pick.
  • The spoils system only benefited president Jackson because this let him chose who got what government jobs that worked with him as president. I don't feel that this term benefited anyone but president Jefferson so this term doesn't make him worthy of being on the $20 dollar bill.
  • The Indian Removal Act was signed into law on May 28, 1830, by United States President Andrew Jackson. The law authorized the president to negotiate with southern Native American tribes for their removal to federal territory west of the Mississippi River in exchange for white settlement of their ancestral lands
  • The Indian Removal Act was to Jefferson's advantage because he forced the natives out of their homes to gain more land. This was ruthless and cruel and proves why Jackson isn't worthy of being on the $20 bill
  • State's rights belong to the various states, especially with reference to the strict interpretation of the Constitution, by which all rights not delegated by the Constitution to the federal government belong to the states.
  • States rights allows states to have separate powers and rights from the federal government President Jackson used this term to his advantage to gain more votes from the states by giving them individual state rights. This term does make Jackson worthy of being on the 20 dollar bill because he helped states gain their independence.
  • The Bank War was the name given to the campaign begun by President Andrew Jackson in 1833 to destroy the Second Bank of the United States, after his reelection convinced him that his opposition to the bank had won national support.
  • President Jackson used the Bank War as an advantage to get what he wanted which was to completely kill the second bank of America and thus this term does not make Jackson worthy of being on the $20 bill
