Andrew Jackson Hero or Zero


Trail of Tears

This is referring back to the Indian Removal Act of 1830. The removal is consisting of 5 tribes which are Cherokee, Mugascee, Semicole, Chickasaw, and Choctaw tribes. Many other Indians suffered from exposure of disease, and starvation while still on the journey to the destination. Jackson did help gain congressional passage of the Indian act of 1830. approximately 4,000 Cherokees died on the way to their final destination.

The Nullification Crisis

South Carolina threatened to secede the United States if Jackson did not make the Tariffs lower then what they were originally. Jackson had ordered them to say but, South Carolina did not want to stay. In response President Jackson and the congress passed the Force Bill which allowed Jackson and the federal government to force South Carolina to stay int United States. Soon, when the US army got involved South Carolina gave in so now they wouldn't secede from the United States.

"Spoils System"

Spoils system is when the winning political party gives jobs to all of his/her supporters. Jackson followed the Spoils System and gave jobs to most of his supporters after winning the election of 1828. Jackson thought it would be clever to have a drunken party at the white house while almost burning it down.
