Andrew Jackson

The Hero of US Presidents

Why Is Andrew Jackson a Hero?

Andrew Jackson did many great things, setting the precedent to rely on his cabinet advisers, he removed the national bank, forefather of the modern democratic party, expanded the spoils system, first and only president to pay off national debt.

Andrew Jackson's best accomplishment was when he terminated the national bank. The national bank was good for the wealthy citizens, but for the common man it often hurt them in more ways then one.

Andrew Jackson also established the modern democratic party that we have today. If he hadn't made this development we would not have the political parties we have today.

He is the first president to pay off national debt, which is no easy thing, which is why he is the only president to ever pull it off.
