Andrew Jackson

Hero or zero?

Andrew Jackson is a hero

Andrew Jackson did many important things as president, some very good, some not quite as good as some people would hope. However, I believe that all the good he did outweighed the bad and he should be remembered as a good president.

Reasons Jackson is a hero:

Jackson and the National Bank

Jackson opposed the national bank because he felt that it had become corrupt and not helping the common American citizen, only the rich. He destroyed it, and this cartoon depicts the bank as a many-headed monster and Jackson slaying the monster.
