JACKSON THE ZERO

proving him wrong

moving of the Indians out of pure hatred and greed

The Indian Removal of President Andrew Jackson was made by the desire of white settlers in the South to expand into lands belonging to five Indian tribes. After Jackson succeeded in pushing the Indian Removal Act through Congress in 1830, the U.S. government spent nearly 30 years forcing Indians to move westward, beyond the Mississippi River.

In the most notorious example of this policy, more than 15,000 members of the Cherokee tribe were forced to walk from their homes in the southern states to designated Indian Territory in present day Oklahoma in 1838


The hatred of the national bank because he disliked the wealthier class

Jackson truly grew a desire to crush the Second Bank of the United States. Over time he had decided that it could not continue as it was, and that it did not warrant reform. It must be destroyed. Jackson's reason for this conclusion was an amalgamation of his past financial problems, his views on states' rights, and his Tennessee roots. The Second Bank centralized financial might, jeopardizing economic stability; it served as a monopoly on fiscal policy, but it did not answer to anyone within the government. Above any principled concerns, however, the Bank became a political battle.

going agents the supreme court and overusing his power

In worchester v. Georgia in 1832, the Court reversed itself and ruled that the State of Georgia could not control the Cherokee within their territory.President Jackson, however, made it clear that he would tolerate no independent nation within the borders of the United States. The Cherokees then understood that even the Supreme Court could not save their cause.
