Andrew Jackson: Hero or Villain?

By: Rebecca Tigges

Villian

I think Andrew Jackson is a villain and he should be criticized because he forced the Indians to leave their home in Georgia and go on a torturous journey. Also, the indians had to leave most of their belongings behind.

Democracy

I think Jackson didn't do a good job of promoting democracy because he focused on the common people and left the rich people alone. The rich people are still people and they should be involved in democracy too. It also didn't help that he made the indians leave. They are also part of the people. It was not right of Jackson to come up with the spoils system. Jackson shouldn't be rewarding political supporters with government jobs.
