Letter from the Southerner (Positive)
Dear President Jackson,
Hi, my name is Billy and I would like to thank you by sending you this letter. Once I heard that you elected for president again and that you veto the National Bank. I'm so thankful that you shut down the National Bank. I thought that the National Bank was so unconstitutional and that it was only for the rich.
Letter from the Cherokee (Negative)
Hi, my name is Dena. I don't like that you moved us to Oklahoma. So, you could sell our land. I heard that people know we have lots of gold so they decide to move and get rich easily. We went to the court and they said that you couldn't take our land. But, you didn't listen to John Marshall. Then you signed the Indian Removal Act. Most of us died because of cold, starvation, and sickness. So once we got to Oklahoma we had to start over.
