Andrew Jackson! Good Or Bad

Brittany Sheldon Period 2

I Think Andrew Jackson's A Hero Because...

Jackson was a "hero" in his winning the Battle of New Orleans. He touted this victory extensively in two different presidential bids. He is considered a president of the common man because he removed the presidential nomination process from the caucus to the convention. He was also instrumental in the establishment of the spoils system which lasted in US government until the assassination of Garfield.

My opinion, and the Policies that support Andrew Jackson...

My opinion is that Andrew Jackson said he was going to give land back to the Indians and then he slaughtered 1000's of them. So they called it the trail of tears. Spoil system he imposed this policy to only hire friends and political people to work in the government. Jackson also corrupted the banks

I Think Andrew Jackson's a villian Because...

He is considered a Villian by the people because of his treatment to the Native Americans. He is responsible for the 'Trail of Tears" in which he removed the Native Americans from their homeland and put them in reservations. Also, during the civil war, he was on the south's side and many see that as being a traitor to America. He is a Villian because he sent all the Indians east.
