Andrew Jackson's Presidency
ZERO NOT A HERO
Killing of the National Bank
Right from the start Jackson hated the National Bank, He said it would favor the wealthy and was unconstitutional. Andrew Jackson tried many things to get rid of the National Bank until he had the opportunity to veto the bill. This vetoed bill destroyed all National Banks to make State banks stronger.
The Nullification Crisis
The Tariff of 1828 and Tariff of 1832 forced South Carolina to pay more money, this made them mad. The Congress and Jackson applied a force bill for South Carolina to pay their Tariffs but they threatened to secede from the union if their nullification's of the tariffs were challenged. This was later resolved by the Compromise of 1833.
