President Andrew Jackson was a very popular president and did a lot of things during his presidency. But in my opinion, I think he was not democratic because he wanted everything done his way or no way, like during the Indian Removal act in Document 10. He wanted the Indians land so he had his soldiers move them \west into the Indian territory. One way that President Andrew Jackson was democratic was his Bank Veto Message to Congress in Document 4. From what I read and what he said, I thought it sounded like he didn’t want to shut down the United States Bank.
Would you want anyone to destroy what your ancestors created, 500 years ago? Especially when the Republic was created to stop tyranny and also to give the people more say in their government. For that reason if anyone were to end the Republic it should not be someone who was arrogant, big headed, egotistic and greedy for power. Rather Brutus who is so patriotic that he would die for his country. Brutus is respected by all is because he is dedicated to helping the greater good and is reliable when it comes to do just that.
Andrew Jackson was known during his presidency due to the significant events and changes. First, he promoted democracy. To promote democracy, he allowed more citizens to take part in government (Spoil System) and vetoed the bill to renew the charter to prevent rich people from taking advantage. Also, he expanded white male suffrage (the right to vote). Second, Nullification Crisis.
The Jacksonian Democracy is a political movement toward a greater democracy for the common man. The Trail of Tears is related to the Jacksonian democracy because both were caused by Andrew Jackson the 7th president of the United States.

Jacksonian Democracy The Jacksonian Democracy in the strictest sense refers to the ascendancy of Andrew Jackson and the Democratic party. It expanded the suffrage to restructuring federal institutions.
In this election of 1828 between a democrat Andrew Jackson and a republican John Quincy Adams, we as a nation must choose a man to make our country great. Andrew Jackson is a war hero, a man of honor and pride, who defended our country in times of need and won the battle of New orleans at all costs; he made responsible choices from tough corners for a better outcome. Let 's not forget his implementation for economic growth by eliminating national banks while odd as it may seem, but the working principle is that they are more prone to political corruption. And lastly his view on equality is that of a common man to another; he is against the tariff law passed onto the southern states which has large impact on our trades. He is also a law student and involved in political system for many years; from representative, senate to military governor in florida, he has experienced our country from many perspectives.Now on the other hand let’s look at Adams.
Both Reagan 's successes and failures stemmed from his character and style of political leadership. Reagan 's optimism, geniality, and gracious nature appealed to his opponents as well as his followers. President Reagan 's leadership was his certainty about simple problems and faith in simple solutions was the source of his political strength as well as some of his failures. He projected simple certainty and displayed confidence, but his actions and policies, in important ways, belied his public image. Reagan 's broad vision and clear direction made his political ideals appealing.
As the Emancipation Proclamation abolished slavery along the way more soldiers were added to the President’s army which he was the commander in chief of which would lead to victory. In the beginning of the Civil War the president viewed it as a way to make the Union a constant and it was not for freeing the slaves even though he clearly did not like the thought of slavery or better yet slavery itself but he was a noble man who wanted to abide by the rules of the Constitution. He also had his reasons for not doing anything sooner which was that he did not want the state's that were pro slavery to back out from supporting the Union. Overall the Emancipation had a huge significance towards the Civil
Andrew Jackson was supported by influential state leaders like Clay Calhoun (in South Carolina) and Martin Van Buren (in New York). As a strong Nationalist, Jackson believed that the states should have the power over governing and not Washington, D.C., and he didn’t believe in interfering with people’s private lives. Politicians were viewed as heroes , and political contests were a mass
Elected offices must be filled directly by the people. In keeping with the principle, Jackson tried to abolish the College Electors (those who choose the president) by Constitutional amendment.” This quote shows President Jackson’s heroism in fighting for the people to have the power to elect their president directly. Many people would disagree and say Andrew Jackson is a villain, he did do things that were frowned upon. Probably the most negative thing is the Indian Removal Act. Although this act was harsh, to some it overshadows the good that Jackson did.
This means that you will do what is right no matter what. Heros who have righteousness fight for the right cause and will not act evil. Righteousness is a key property you must have to be a good hero. An example of righteousness is when Lebowitz defended the Scottsboro boys even though he knew he was going to be hated very much in the south. Another example is President Kennedy because he did everything he could to make blacks equal.
You should also be responsible for being a good person. This isn 't just some off the wall concept either as Samuel Adams said, “A general dissolution of principles and manners will more surely overthrow the liberties of America than the whole force of the common enemy. While the people are virtuous they cannot be subdued; but when once they lose their virtue then will be ready to surrender their liberties to the first external or internal invader.” The people of America realized long ago ago honest, honorable, just, truthful society with a love for industry and Godliness and a respect for the law will prosper. If the people are no good than no matter how good a leader, or how well the constitution is written, or how fortuitous we are, our nation is
2. Theodore Roosevelt was considered to be the “First Modern President because he had a strong- firm personality, and showed aggressive actions towards others. Roosevelt believed that the President had the right to use all power unless they were denied to him. Also, that he has a responsibility to the people, and so challenged himself to avoid notions of limited government and individualism; the government he controlled should maintain as an agent who should give the people what they want. Roosevelt’s presidency opened up creativity of progressive movement, lending the prestige of the White House to welfare legislation, government regulation, and the conservation movement.
White politicians, many of whom were former yeoman, were the biggest supporters of white superiority and a continuation of slavery. This was due to their failed plans “to translate successes here into social or economic gains”. Many years later, after Reconstruction, the Redeemers, who were Southern capitalist Whigs, pushed hard for industry and left black and white farmers behind. This gave rise to the Populist movement, which included both whites and blacks. Both sides put aside racial differences in order to improve their condition.
