Storyboard Text

  • Do you think Andrew Jackson deserves to be on the $20 bill? I think he should.
  • Jacksonian Democracy
  • Well, I think so too after all he made wise decisions that helped America. 
  • For example, Jackson did create the Jacksonian Democracy. Which was supported by the people's strong spirit. It was also upvoted by the men without property in the eastern states.
  • Spoils System
  • There was also the Spoils System, where political parties won election the campaign workers would be rewarded by given a government position.  
  • Indian Removal Policy
  • But lets not forget the Indian Removal Policy when Jackson forced the Indians out of their land to migrate west. Killing thousands on the journey known as the Trail of Tears. 
  • Since Jackson was for federal rights and not state's rights. 
  • The Jacksonian Democracy was an act created by Jackson to increase democracy. He purposed that the only requirement to buy land was that you had to be a white male. This helped him win the 1828 election. 
  • States Rights
  • Rights belonging to the states by which rights entrusted by the Constitution to the federal government belong to the states. Jackson's vice president came up with the Doctrine of Nullification and to his dismay, Jackson did not approve. 
  • Jackson used this to his advantage because then the people at the white house who had the same beliefs and views as him agreed with him. That way hey believed he had what it took to be a president. 
  • War on National Bank
  • The War on National Bank was about the bank and it's replacement by various state banks. 
  • This was not the best decision since it killed so many Natives, but this does not prove if he doesn't deserve to be on the $20 bill. This did however relocate the Native's that way they didn't interfere with the Americans.

  • Jackson used this to his advantage by proving he was as big as government as they come. This helped make a stronger government and as president he lowered the people's taxes. 
  • Jackson used this to his advantage by calling a renewal of the second bank's character he set out too reduce the bank's economic power. He then declared that federal funds wouldn't be deposited in the Bank of the United States.
