  • Andrew Jackson should not be on the 20 dollar bill
  • Sources: TCI, USHistory.org
  • I think that this act makes him worthy of being on the 20 dollar bill because he allowed the common man to vote even if he only did it so he could win the election
  • He used Jacksonian Democracy by letting more people vote so that he could get more votes in his election. The Jackson supporters made a party named Democratic party, and the people in this party promised that they would represent workers, farmers, and the poor and not the rich and upper class who controlled the republican party. The Jackson supports started organizing parades, picnics, and rallies
  • I think that this act does not make him worthy of being on the twenty dollar bill because it doesn't make sense to put someone with no experience in office just because they supported you. And he was only doing it for his own good because if the people in office are on his side then he doesn't have to worry about being impeached.
  • Jackson used the spoils system for his supporters so that they could get in office because they supported him. Many people didn't believe in this and said that i wasn't far because the men he had chosen were not qualified.
  • This proves that he shouldn't be on the 20 dollar bill because the supreme court told him that they could stay but he kicked them out anyway and that was a selfish move. President are supposed to care for what is best for their country and he was only thinking about himself in the act.
  • Andrew Jackson used the Indian removal act just to get rid of the Indiana tribes just so he can have more land. All the Indians had to move North and it was known as the trial of tears
  • Andrew Jackson was not to favor of the doctrine of Nullification or states rights , and instead went in favor of the federal government. He believed that the government should have the power of everything. This goes against some of the Constitution, taking rights away from the citizens.
  • The Indian Removal act was a law passed by the president that forced Native American tribes to leave their homes west of the Mississippi so white men could move in. He lost the faith of the Native Americans, which caused his population to decrease.
