Events of Andrew Jackson

The guy on the $20 bill!

Nullification Crisis

South Carolina refused to pay taxes on the tariff of 1828 and the tariff of 1832. If the Federal Government interfered with their act, South Carolina threatened to leave the union. However, Congress passed the Force Bill, which authorized Andrew Jackson to use the military to collect their tariff duties if necessary. The Nullification Crisis was resolved when South Carolina accepted the 1833 compromise after Andrew Jackson threatened to call an army and hang John C. Calhoun.

Trail of Tears

The Native American nations were forced to give up their lands because of the Indian Removal Act, which was signed by Andrew Jackson. The tribes suffered from many things such as disease, exposure, exhaustion, and starvation while traveling to their new land. More than ten thousand people had died before reaching their various destinations. This event shows one of the worst government flaws in American history.

A message to the best president ever, Andrew Jackson

Dear Andrew Jackson,

Thank you so much for allowing the tariffs of 1828 and 1832. It has helped our economy so much, because we produce the products. Again, we just want to say that we the Northerners, think you are great.

Sincerely,

The Northerners

A message to the worst president ever, Andrew Jackson

Dear Andrew Jackson,


I can barely even write your repulsive name without having a gag reflex. How dare you accept these tariffs! It made our Southern economy a complete and utter joke. How dare you! I will pray to God every day to make sure you don't get elected for a second time.

Sincerely,

An enraged Southerner
