Storyboard Text

  • Election of 1828
  • I will speak for the many Americans who have been excluded from politics!
  • Spoils System
  • The new president has requested new government employees. You are not needed anymore.
  • Worcester v. Georgia
  • Brilliant! It will be called the Indian Removal Act!
  • Well that is not fair to me! I am the President and I will get that land!
  • Well, Mr. Jackson, what if we make an act that convinces them to leave their land?
  • The candidates of the 1828 election were Andrew Jackson, Henry Clay, and John Quincy Adams. Jackson was raised in poverty and claimed to speak for Americans who had been left out of politics. Clay was the Speaker of the House of Representatives. Adams was popular with merchants in the Northeast.
  • Indian Removal Act
  • The spoils system was the practice of replacing current government employees with supporters of the winner. I do agree with the spoils system because if I were president, I would want my loyal supporters to help me with my presidency.
  • Trail of Tears
  • I didn't agree to this!
  • In this case, John Marshall, the Cherokee, Andrew Jackson, and the U.S. Supreme Court were involved. The final decision was that Georgia had no right to interfere with the Cherokee. I agree with this statement because neither Jackson nor Georgia really cared about the Native Americans, they just wanted their land.
  • Jackson Adopted Two Native American Boys
  • He is a savage that fortune has thrown in my hands.
  • The Indian Removal Act allowed the federal government to pay Native Americans to move west. This act was created by Jackson because the Cherokee were determined to stay on their native land but Jackson wanted them off.
  • I don't care what it takes! I want them off that that land!
  • Whatever you say sir!
  • The federal government had convinced about 500 Cherokee natives to sign the Treaty of New Echota. In the treaty, it said that the Cherokee were willing to give up their land and had to be moved west. This migration was called the Trail of Tears. Many of the natives died of illnesses before the journey even began. After the trip began, around 2,000 natives died of exposure to weather and starvation. When the relocation was over, about 1/4 of the Cherokee population was dead.
  • I'm so hungry!
  • Just keep walking!
  • Andrew Jackson had campaigns against native tribes and created the Indian Removal Act, but he adopted two Creek infants in 1813 and 1814 named Theodore and Lyncoya. Jackson wrote to his wife about Lyncoya saying, "He is a savage that fortune has thrown in my hands."
