Andrew Jackson

Hero? Or a cold-hearted Villian?

Cherokee Indian Letter.

Hello, I am Cherokee native Jerry Smith. I am writing to you because of the recent situation that our tribe has been facing for a few days now. Recently, President Jackson has signed a document that is going to force us Cherokees out of our native land. Though the Supreme Court had ruled against this unfair and preposterous act, he still signed it. This man is turning into a king! He has been unfair to us Natives for too long. He must be stopped. Just remember that if he continues to go through with this, that we will be moved, and many of us will die.


Sincerely,

Jerry Smith

Hello, I am Georgia Native, Richard. I own the company known as Richard and Son's, and we manufacture clothing, and other goods that use the crop cotton. Thanks to Jackson's new proposal about moving the Cherokee Land, I am now able to purchase more land for my company to grow. Thank you for reporting the story, for I am ecstatic to get my new land.


Sincerely,

Richard

Political Cartoon

Jackson employed the use of the Spoils System, a system that meant that supporters of him receive free jobs, and pay. This cartoon shows how much Jackson used the spoils system, and how many people actually received jobs from him. Also, before the people even received jobs, he fired almost everyone from their government positions. People backlashed against this because some of the people in government weren't qualified for their jobs.
