Hero or Zero?
Andrew Jackson + Presidency = 0
The Trail of Tears
While Andrew Jackson disliked Cherokee's, he LOVED the land they lived on, because it was good for cotton, an enormous cash crop. letting greed take over, he used the army to move the Cherokee's right off their land an into reservations in Oklahoma. The path they took became known as the "Trail of Tears", and it lives up to its name. Thousands of Native Americans died during the long rigorous walk, mostly from disease.Though it is unknown exactly how many, because they didn't get to bury the bodies. All this for a small patch of land, nice going Jackson.
The "Spoils System"
South Carolina threatened to secede from the US if the tariff isn't removed, this was stated by John Calhoun. You know what Andrew Jackson did? He threatened to hang him! That isn't a very presidential approach is it?
