Storyboard Text

  • "The Elections of 1824 and 1828"
  • The presidential election is between Henry Clay, Andrew Jackson, John Quincy Adams, and several other candidates.
  • The election is going to be tough. The three of them are all part of the favorite sons.
  • Taken to the House
  • Not one candidate has one the elctoral votes. We must take this election to the house of representatives.
  • The Stolen Election
  • I, Henry Clay, have a spectacular idea that will eliminate Jackson in becoming president. I will use my power as Speaker of the House to make you president.
  • Yes, you will grant me the secretary of state. Great plan if I do say so myself.
  • Do I have to do something in return?
  • In the election of 1824 the competition for president was force. Jackson, Adams, and Clay were all running for president, and they all were favorite sons because their home states supported them rather than the national party. This was the first election where there were no parties, and its significant because some candidates where favorite sons. Also, this election was between greatly known people .
  • Parties Again
  • Go Adams!
  • Not one candidate received the electoral votes but Jackson won the most popular votes, which gave him a plurality or largest single share. In this situation the House of Representatives selects the president. This was significant because the house had to decide on the president.
  • Ruin your Reputation
  • Andrew Jackson
  • Henry Clay
  • John Quincy Adams
  • Henry Clay used his power as Speaker of the House to persuade the house to vote for Adams as president, since not one candidate got majority electoral votes. In return for Clay's actions Adams would grant Clay as his secretary of states. The reason was they did this was to get Jackson out of the election. This deal was known's as the "corrupt bargain". This is significant because it cast a shadow over Adams' presidency, and this deal was unethical.
  • The Effect on Today
  • Henry Clay
  • In the election of 1828 many voting rights where changed, new political parties formed, and lastly mudslinging was used in the elections.
  • John Quincy Adams
  • By 1828, two political parties formed which were the the Democratic Republicans and the National Republicans. The National Republicans wanted Adams to become president, and the Democratic Republicans backed Jackson. The National Republicans were mostly built up of merchants or farmers, and they supported a strong central government. The Democratic Republicans favored states rights. This was significant because it changed how people voted, and it started mudslinging.
  • National Republicans
  • National Republicans
  • Democratic Republicans
  • Go Jackson!
  • Democratic Republicans
  • During the Election of 1828, both parties restored to mudslinging, attempts to ruin their opponent's reputation with insults. The opposing parties started to sell pamphlet's, and make things up to ruin their reputation. From the Election of 1824 and Election 1828 Jackson gained more supporters because he had connections with the average citizen. This was important because in current campaigns parties use mudslinging to defeat their opponents.
  • Adams kidnapped a young American girl adn sold her to Russia.
  • Jackson plunged a sword through the body of a helpless citizen!
  • The election of 1824 and 1828 greatly changed American politics. In these elections the current parties formed, and for the first time candidates were mudslinging each other to gain more supporters. What had been considered common politics, was completely changed because of the election of 1824 and 1828.
  • These elections have greatly changed American politics.
