About Andrew Jackson's Presidency
As a Cherokee Indian, Andrew Jackson is without a doubt the worst U.S president. Once Jackson became president, he allowed whites to move onto our land. He also allowed Georgia to extend their state law to include the Cherokee nation, this called into question our sovereignty and declared our laws void. Then in 1830, congress passed the Indian Removal Act. It is for these reasons the Cherokee nation is not happy with the presidency held by Andrew Jackson.
As a frontiersman, I am more than happy with president Jackson's presidency. President Jackson condemned anti slavery agitation, favored cheaper public lands and used his position to clear Indian tribes west of the Mississippi. President Jackson used executive powers vigorously, defying congress, vetoing more bills that all presidents combined before him. It is for these reasons and more that President Jackson was re-elected and known as the president of the common people.
