President A. Jackson is a Zero!!

1. Andrew Jackson treated the Native Americans badly. He sent them to reservations to the west of the Mississippi River to steal their land in Georgia.

2. The national bank was destroyed by Jackson, because he hated it.

3. South Carolina wanted to secede from the United States because the tariffs were increasing over time, and Jackson threatened to send in the National Army to force them to stay. This was called the Nullification Crisis.

The Indian Removal Act and The Trail of Tears

The Indian Removal Act, signed into law by Andrew Jackson, led to the Cherokee, Choctaw, Chickasaw, Creek, and Seminole Native Americans being forced from their homelands in Georgia, into an uncharted territory west of the Mississippi River. The Indian Removal Act supported the relocation of the Native American tribes. It stated the United States government could "exchange" the Native american's rightfully owned land, with the less desirable land to the west of the Mississippi River. President Jackson signed this act into law even after the Supreme Court Chief Justice, John Marshall, had delivered his ruling over Worcester v. Georgia. He deliberately disobeyed the Supreme Court ruling and followed through with enforcing the Indian Removal Act.

King Andrew

Andrew Jackson is depicted here as a King of the United States. The artist drew him this way because no matter what the Supreme Court or Constitution says, he does what he wants. Andrew Jackson, or "King Andrew the First" used his power to veto more than any other previous president. This is why he is holding a scroll in his hand which says "VETO" and on the left side of the portrait, there is an "OF VETO MEMORY" subtitle. This cartoon also portrays a large amount of the United States Constitution. Jackson is not only standing on said Constitution, it is also torn in to shreds. Plus, there is a book of legal documents laying on the floor. The author clearly thought Jackson was overstepping his boundaries of power as president and acting as a king, rather than an elected official, or President of the United States.
