Andrew Jackson Is Void

Why Jackson Is Insignificant to the Success of America

Worcester v. Georgia

Worcester v. Georgia was a case in 1832 that was decided by the Supreme Court. In this case, Chief Justice John Marshall laid out his opinion saying that he does not agree with the removal of the Native Americans. President Andrew Jackson went against the great John Marshall and responded, "John Marshall has made his decision; now let him enforce it! ... Build a fire under them. When it gets hot enough, they'll go."

Spoils System

Jackson supporters had been lavished with promises of positions in return for political support. 919 officials were removed from government positions. He gave many new positions to politically inexperienced common men.

Nullification Crisis

The South suffered from the Tariff of Abominations that favored the North. The Nullification Crisis was created by South Carolina's 1832 Ordinance of Nullification. South Carolina threatened to nullify the Tariff of 1828 for it was hurting their economy the most.
