The Jacksonian Democracy was a political idea which focused on spreading political powers out amongst the people.
Oh! So this was a good thing because the government didn't have the sole power and the wealthy weren't the only ones experiencing benefits from this.
We can't find any books on Andrew Jackson, can you tell us about him?
The Spoils System was a practice where the political party who wins an election rewards members of their party.
This was a smart decision because laws could get passed quicker because everyone who was required to pass them would be in favor of them.
Andrew Jackson should stay on the twenty dollar bill because he represented the poor, focused on states' rights, appointed people who supported his ideas, and noted details of the Constitution when it came to economic decisions.
Indian Removal Policy
The Indian Removal Policy was a law that allowed the president to send the Native Americans that already lived within America’s territory to the land west of the Mississippi river.
States' rights are rights that belong to a state. The federal government has nothing to do with these rights.
Andrew Jackson used the Jacksonian Democracy to his advantage by proving to the people that he supported the poor. By doing this, he got regular people to vote for him.
“The Bank War” was a campaign that Andrew Jackson started in hopes of it demolishing the Second Bank of the United States. When he was reelected, he believed that this was what had increased his chances.
Andrew Jackson used the Spoils System to his advantage by appointing people who supported his party and removing people who didn’t.
War on National Bank/Economic Decisions
From what we've learned today, I think Andrew Jackson should stay on the twenty dollar bill.
Many people were very against the Indians, so there was more support on the topic. This built up more support for him, which is how he used the Indian Removal Policy to his advantage.
This wasn't a very smart decision because not all Indians moved west peacefully, which created problems.
Andrew Jackson used this to his advantage by gaining more support from those who didn’t want the government to have so much power.
This was a smart thing for him to focus on because the federal government couldn't be anything similar to a king when the states had their own rights.
A large amount of the nation also wanted to get rid of the Second Bank of the United States, which resulted in an increase in support for him during the election and got him reelected.
This was a good thing because the Constitution didn't necessarily enable the national government to establish a bank of their own.
