When Jackson became president he had the "Common Man" to thank for coming out to vote for him because they thought he was more like them because he grew up like a "Common Man". Jackson thought he should repay them by giving away Government jobs. This was very unfair to give jobs to less educated people.
Above the rest
In this political cartoon it shows how Jackson thought about himself compared to the Native Americans. He thought he was so much better and higher than them just because they were Natives. Andrew Jackson also thought that he was helping them by making them leave to Oklahoma.
