Storyboard Text

  • Andrew Jackson, Henry Clay, John Quincy Adams, and William H. Crawford ran in the election of 1824 (Jackson, Clay, and Quincy were all favorite sons).
  • Andrew Jackson won the plurality of the vote, but when it came to the House of Representatives to vote, Clay convinced them to vote for Adams, causing Adams to win.
  • In 1830, President Jackson pushed the Indian Removal Act through Congress, angering the Native Americans. 
  • In 1835, only 500 people of the Cherokees signed the Treaty of New Echota, forcing them to leave the land by 1838. On their journey, many were killed by a disease, causing many to cry, leading to the name "the Trail of Tears".
  • Congress set up the Second Bank of the U.S. to hold federal government money and to control the nation's money supply. Jackson never liked the bank because he viewed it as a monopoly that favored wealthy easterners and limited western growth.
  • Henry Clay and Daniel Webster tried to use the bank to defeat Jackson but he was then reelected as president for a second term.
