Andrew Jackson "zero"

You wanna know what really grinds my gears? Andrew Jackson!

The Three Big Gear Grinders

The Indian Removal Act

Killing the National Bank

The Nullification Crisis

The Indian Removal Act

Andrew Jackson passed this act which forced the Native Americans to Land West of the Mississippi River. Andrew left no supplies for the Natives to restart their life. Due to the Harsh weather conditions, thousands of Native Americans died on theie way to the territory. This could have been avoided if Andrew Jackson hadn't passed the Indian Removal Act. I fell as if this makes Andrew Jackson a "zero". This act also gave US troops authority to Banish the nAtives from their homelands.

Killing the National Bank

Jackson felt that having a national bank was "unconstitutional" and when he was elected for a second term he used his presidential powers and vetoed the bill that proposed a second national bank. I believe this also makes Jackson a "zero" because i think having the governments money in one Account only makes it easier to keep track of transactions instead of having the money spread out at different locations.

The Nullification Crisis

Southerners (South Carolina) were very angry when a tariff was passed by Andrew Jackson because the south had very little manufacturing while the North did.When South Carolina Threatened to secede from the Union Andrew Jackson Said he was willing to lower the tariff just a little bit. When South Carolina heard the offering they still were not happy and still threatened to secede. It was in which Andrew Jackson said he'd take military actions (Send US troops down there to fight) if they were to leave. This made South Carolina and the Southerners pull back on the seceding idea and accept the lowered tariff.I think this makes Jackson a "zero" because he was most likely well aware that the South had little manufacturing and he still passed the tariff making it harder on the south.
