John Quincy Adams (Middle) made a deal with Henry Clay (Left) to help get John Q Adams elected president in 1824 in a corrupt bargain, cheating Andrew Jackson out of Presidency.
This is my cabinet, I filled it with governmment noobs.
This encouraged Andrew Jackson to run in the election in 1828 as the "People's President." He also was one of the first candidates to begin "mudslinging" at other candidates.
Lets pass a BIG tax on imports!
I will nullify this law in the great state of South Carolina!!
After Andrew Jackson was elected, he held a party inside the White House for the citizens to share their grievances with the new President.
Shortly after taking office Jackson decided to replace most of the federal employees with his supporters, which included family, fellow party members and financial supporters. He also replaced his advisors with ones that are unqualified.
Andrew Jackson (left) thought that the states had no right to nullify his tariffs, and John C. Calhoun (right) thought that the states had a right. South Carolina feared that their exports of farm goods would decrease. They eventually backed down when a lower tariff was passed.
The Bank War was a disagreement on the Second Bank of the United States and if it was unconstitutional or not. President Jackson then began transferring funds from the national bank to smaller state "pet banks" reducing the economical, power of the second bank, causing it's charter to expire.
