Should Andrew Jackson Be Praised Or Criticized?

In my opinion Andrew Jackson should be criticized because he forced many American Indians to move to a new location, when they didn't want to. He "made" the Trail of Tears happen.

Did Andrew Jackson Promote Democracy Well?

Andrew Jackson promoted democracy by supporting the common man, and states rights when he refused to sign the recharter for the national bank. He put the money from the national bank into smaller state banks, giving more power to the common man, but breaking the constitution as well. Andrew Jackson always put the people before him. They wanted to hear their opinions. So yes, Andrew Jackson did promote democracy well. He was always a leader.
