Nullification Crisis

In 1832, when South Carolina adopted the ordinance to nullify the tariff acts and label them unconstitutional. They forced South Caroline to pay taxes, but refused and threatened to secede from the U.S. Jackson decided to lower the tax.

Indian Removal Act

The Indian Removal Act authorizing the removal of Native Americans who lived east of the Mississippi River to lands in the west. They were going to move the Indians to reservations to remove the Indians, Congress then approved the creation of a new government agency.

Spoils System

The Spoils system name given due to the practice of hiring and firing federal workers when it had changed, also it came from a speech from Senator William Learned Marcy in which he said "to the victor belongs the spoils." It is the system in which the winner of an election gives government jobs to their supporters. The jobs always led to problems so many people lost theirs.

This is a picture of Andrew Jackson dressed up as a king to show that Jackson was a strong president that abused his powers and was called "King Jackson." He is stomping on the Constitution supporting an opposing party, but doesn't help him increase the power of his presidency

Letter #1 (Frontiersman)

Andrew Jackson thank you for everything. I'm glad you gave us all the land for me and my family to live on. I hope you have a great life just like you gave my family and I gold and land to farm on. Now I am able to farm and grow my own food and support my family without any hardships. Thank you Jackson for supporting us and we will do anything to support you.

Letter #2 (Cherokee)

Help me from Jackson! They took away everything from me. We had our own constitution, language and cotton. We even discovered some gold, and so many people died on the trail from cold and starvation and once I arrived in Oklahoma, many of my people didn't make it. Jackson took everything away from us. he doesn't deserve what he has we need to do something about him. Please save me!
