IS JACKSON A HERO OR ZERO?

WHO IS JACKSON?

TRAIL OF TEARS

In 1838, our president was Andrew Jackson and as Georgia wanted more land Jackson had agreed but it was against the constitution so the Cherokee tribe went to the Supreme court and they ruled in their favor but president Jackson thought they didn't back it up so he demanded that the Cherokee would move to the southwest. On the trail of tears 25% of the Cherokee tribe was dead because of all the horrible conditions.

THE SPOILS SYSTEM

The spoils system is a system that rewards of winning candidates. Jackson put his friends in the political jobs and fired all of the former people with the job. He had done this because he was mad, he thought that the election would be taken from him and to reward supporters with U.S government jobs.

KILLING THE 2nd NATIONAL BANK

Jackson had the desire to crush the Second Bank of the United States. The Second Bank centralized the rich and not the "common man"; it served on fiscal policy, but it did not answer to anyone within the government.
