Andrew Jackson

Zero consideration for native americans

Hero or zero

I believe that Andrew Jackson is a zero because of all the crafty and tyranny like things he did as a president. He caused such things that include the spoils system, the nullification crisis, the trail of tears, and the Indian removal act.

Trail of tears, spoils system, nullification crisis

TRAIL OF TEARS The original founders of america were native Americans. We had already took almost all there land before Andrew Jackson came along, but apparently that wasn't enough land for Andrew Jackson. The native tribe Cherokee lived in southeastern America. President Jackson forced that whole tribe to expand to Oklahoma. They forced them to leave in the summer so thousands native Americans died of starvation and dehydration. They made the other half leave in December so thousands of Native Americans starved to death and died from frostbite.

NULLIFICATION CRISIS The first thing you should know about the the nullification crisis is what nullify means. Nullify means to declare invalid; Jackson took great advantage to this rule. Jackson passed two tariffs during his presidency, tariff of 1828 and the tariff of 1832.

SPOILS SYSTEM The spoils system is a greedy thing that Andrew Jackson started. The spoils system was a system in which if congress did something for Andrew Jackson they would get jobs.

This political cartoon describes Andrew Jackson treating the native Americans unfairly. This also makes him look like a dictator.
