The Trail Of Tears

The Cherokees suffered from Andrew Jackson's vision of America. He wanted to remove all Indian tribes from their ancestral homes and land.This relocation allowed more room for settlers who made large profits. In doing so he forced the Cherokees to move from the east of the Mississippi River to present-day Oklahoma. It really hurt the Cherokees because of the devastating effects they encountered; hunger, sickness, and exhaustion on the march called The Trail Of Tears. and over 4,000 out of the 15,000 Cherokees died.

Then he created the...

Spoils System

The Spoils System gave the winning voters a governmental job [not all voters] as a reward for a victory on their side. And it was also a way to keep members in your party. This was very unfair to the people who voted for the other candidate. It enhanced the political views of the government because of the equal views from one president.

But what else has he done to hurt us?

He Killed The National Bank

On September 10th in 1833, President Andrew Jackson announced that the government will no longer use the Second Bank of the United States, the country's national bank. He took the National Bank down when Congress wasn't in session. So it was practically against the law. And it didn't allow people, the common man, to take loans so they could pay taxes and tariffs. And wasn't Jackson all about helping the common man?
