  • Andrew Jackson should not be on the 20 dollar bill.
  • Created by: Melissa Keeble
  • Did you know that Andrew Jackson created the Jacksonian Democracy that allowed all white men to vote, just so he could gain more votes to become the new president?
  • Oh, so that was how he used the Jacksonian democracy to his advantage during the presidential election
  • This is one of the reasons why Andrew Jackson should not be on the 20 dollar bill
  • What are the other reasons?
  • He also used an Indian Removal Act that allowed the president to grant unsettled lands west of the Mississippi, for the Indians to give their land in return.
  • He ended up using it to his advantage by removing federal employees that were considered to be political opponents and replaced them with his won supporters.
  • Well, Andrew Jackson used a spoils system that was when the political party that won the election would reward its campaign workers and supporters.
  • He used this to his advantage to get the gold the Indians had in their land and to expand the size of the United States
  • He used this to his advantage because he believed that the bank symbolized that only upper class men represented the US and since he only saw himself as a "regular person", he thought that he would gain more supporters.
  • He used this to his advantage because he supported states rights, which most of the people also did, which lead to him getting more votes.
  • States rights are kept by a regional government that was in charge of only a small area.
  • Lastly, the War on National Bank was a campaign he started in 1833, which was created to destroy the second band of the United States.
  • So, because Andrew Jackson did all of this just so he could be elected president, is not right and him being on the 20 dollar bill does not represent a good leader of the United States.
