Andrew Jackson

Jacksonian Democracy

Politicians were usually rich men who probably wouldn't care much of the common men. That was until Andrew Jackson had ran for president, he was one of the "common man" which had stopped the privileged rich men from wining elections. Jackson was one of the many common men & understood them well so when someone like that runs for president, everyone had immediately set their votes on him because they needed attention more than the rich men.

Spoils System

A practice in which a political party, after winning an election, gives government jobs to its supporters, friends & relatives as a reward for working toward victory, & also as an incentive to keep working for the party.

Trail of Tears

Jackson didn't fancy Native Americans, so he had pushed out all of them from Georgia to Oklahoma. The journey was a tough one for the Natives as thousands of deceased people were to be left to the side with each break. Many adults & children were sore from walking such long distances; disabled & pregnant women got to ride on horses. Food shortages was another huge deal, the Natives had struggled greatly in this long journey with minimum energy from their food.
