Andrew Jackson

Three Reasons Why He's Not A Hero:

  • He used the "spoils system" to hire people who would do what he said and not what was right.

  • "Nullification Crisis", or "secession crisis," which led to the threat of John Calhoun being hanged is South Carolina didn't agree to the compromise tariff of 1833.

  • The "Trail of Tears" where President Jackson made Native American tribes leave their land or be killed going against the Supreme Courts suggestion.
