*~reason two!~*

1833 September 10th, President Andrew Jackson announces that the government will no longer use the Second Bank of the United States, the country's national bank. He then used his executive power to remove all federal funds from the bank, in the final salvo of what is referred to as the "Bank War.

*~reason three !~*

Jackson did not believe that the Second Bank of the United States was constitutional and further that it favored the wealthy over the common people. When its charter came up for renewal in 1832, Jackson vetoed it. He further removed government money from the bank and put it into state banks. However, these state banks did not follow stringent lending practices. Their freely made loans led to inflation. To combat this, Jackson ordered that all land purchases be made in gold or silver which would have consequences in the Panic of 1837
