Here's why Andrew Jackson does not deserve to be on the twenty dollar bill.

Storyboard Text

  • Andrew Jackson does not deserve to be on the $20 bill.
  • Does Andrew Jackson Deserve to Be on the Twenty Dollar Bill?
  • Hannah Whitesides
  • Jacksonian Democracy: A movement for more democracy in government in the 1830s. Led by Andrew Jackson, it championed greater rights for the common man.
  • I'm definitely voting for him!
  • I'll give you all voting rights!
  • Spoils System: the practice of a successful political party giving public office to its supporters.
  • You're hired!

  • Indian Removal Policy: authorized the president to grant unsettled lands west of the Mississippi in exchange for Indian lands within existing state borders.
  • Andrew Jackson used the support of the common man in order to win the election by granting them voting rights, and therefore guaranteeing their support. However, Since he only supported common people for his own personal gain, this shows that he doesn't deserve to be put on the 20 dollar bill.
  • States' Rights: the rights and powers held by individual US states rather than by the federal government.
  • Lower the tariff!
  • Andrew Jaclson used this system to hire the people who he had close connections to, rather than more qualified people. As a result, many crooks had important positions in the government, and people prioritized connections rather than skill. Since Andrew Jackson hired people unfairly and allowed dishonest people to work in the government, this shows that Andrew Jackson does not deserve to be on the $20 bill.
  • War on National Bank: the name given to the campaign begun by President Andrew Jackson in 1833 to destroy the Second Bank of the United States.
  • We should just get rid of the national bank!
  • Although Indians did have their own constitution, and the supreme court was not in favor of moving them, Andrew Jackson forced them to move anyways. Jackson's actions led to the deaths of thousands of Indians, and it was unfair for him to make them leave their land. This shows that Andrew Jackson does not deserve to be on the $20 bill.
  • Since Andrew Jackson favored federal rights over states rights, he failed to address many southerner's issues with what was known as "the Tariff of Abominations". When he later lowered the tariffs, he also signed the Force Bill which also angered the southerners. This event was a large contributing factor to the Civil War, and shows that Andrew Jackson does not deserve to be on the $20 bill.
  • Did you say something?
  • Andrew Jackson strongly opposed the national bank, since he viewed it as a monopoly that favors the high-class. So he setsout to destroy the national bank, and succeeds. As a result, state banks cause inflation and this leads to the Panic of 1837. Since Andrew Jackson's actions led to a huge economic crisis and the Panic of 1837, this shows that Andrew Jackson does not deserve to be on the $20 bill.
