Storyboard Text

  • My name is Nathan Wilson and...
  • My sources are chapters 12.1, 12.2, and chapter 12.4 in the history textbook along with britannica.com and dictionary.com
  • I don't believe that Andrew Jackson should be on the $20 bill because of his actions during his presidency such as rejecting Calhoun's Theory of Nullification, his use of the spoils system after his election in 1828, and his war on national banks during his presidency. 
  • This proved that he doesn't deserve to be on the $20 bill because he still didn't make a push to have non-white people be able to vote which is a bad image for the modern day United States. 
  • Andrew Jackson originated Jacksonian Democracy in an effort to win the election. Jacksonian Democracy means to spread political power to people to make sure you win an election. 
  • Another reason Jackson doesn't deserve to be on the $20 bill is because of his use of the spoils system. The spoils system is the act of giving rewards to people associated with the winning party.
  • Jackson used this by appointing servants during his presidency because they were loyal to him.
  • The Indian Removal Policy was an act by the government in 1830 that stated that America would negotiate with the Native Americans that would make the Native’s relocate west.
  • Jackson supported this which was wrong because they shouldn't of forced the natives west and been more civil about it. 
  • He still rejected Calhoun's theory of nullification at dinner party for Thomas Jefferson's birthday. 
  • State's rights are the rights that individual states possesses. Jackson said he supported them but...
  • Jackson had a war on national banks during his presidency because  he felt like “the bank was a monopoly that favored the few at the expense of the many.”
  • This proves that he shouldn't be on the $20 bill because he shut done a national bank therefore shouldn't be represented on the United State's money.
