Andrew Jackson This is a paper about Andrew Jackson being on the 20 dollar bill. The question I am going to answer is, should Andrew Jackson be on the 20 dollar bill?

A Man That Was Our President, A Villain?! A villain usually wears masks and wants to destroy the world, but that’s not the case this time. This time we are talking about a man who rides a horse and just happened to be the president of the United States. A man that bribed people to help him become president.
Andrew Jackson was a poor Carolinian orphan who continually served his country despite the adversity he faced. Under his control the US won two amazing battles, the battle of New Orleans and the battle of horseshoe bend, providing the United states with land and international recognition. With his patriotic history Jackson won the election of 1829 and due to his love of his country worked to keep the union together despite the driving force of issues such as nullification. In 1832 the South Carolina legislature held a convention declaring the tariffs of 1928 and 1932 utterly null and void.

Born in poverty, Andrew Jackson had become a wealthy Tennessee lawyer and rising young politician by 1812. When war broke out between the United States and Britain, his leadership in that conflict earned Jackson national fame as a military hero and he would become America’s most influential and polarizing political figure during the 1820’s and 1830’s. The year is 1763 in Tennessee and Washington D.C. during the life of Andrew Jackson. As he lived, Mr. Jackson did some foolish things and some impacting things. An example of three of the foolish things that Mr. Jackson did are the following:
Today some people would say that John Brown is a terrorist, and some people would might say he isn’t. The dictionary’s definition of a terrorist is, “A person who uses unlawful violence and intimidation, especially against civilians, in the pursuit of political aims”. An example of this would be if a man shot about 20 to 35 children because culturally diverse kids were all in the same school together, versus the shooting at Las Vegas. That man was shooting people just to shoot people. Which is why I would say John Brown isn’t a terrorist because, he only killed the slave owners.
Although Andrew Jackson ended up killing people, he was doing what he thought was best for the nation. Even though Jackson tried giving the Native Americans land elsewhere, they fought back, causing the Seminole wars and the trail of tears. Though Jackson had commendable intention multitudes of Native people were killed along with the culture. “[Forced] removal of 20,000 Cherokee from their ancestral lands”1 was probably one of the worst decisions Andrew Jackson could have enforced. Evaluating Andrew Jackson’s decisions we can try and get inside his mind, figuring out why he made the choices he did and what ethical backing he had behind it all.
Have you ever wondered who George Washington was? Well, listen to my T.C to learn even more about him. George Washington was born on February 22, 1732. As a child Washington didn’t have the best life because of all the things that happened to him when he was little. First of all, the first thing that wasn’t good in his life was the French and Indian War that happened in 1754 – 1763.
President Andrew Jackson passed a law that stated the removal of the Cherokee Indians. They were forced to migrate elsewhere and leave their land. Their migration was called “The Trail of Tears” because of the negative effects it had on the Cherokees. It should not have happened and the U.S. should not have allowed it because it split apart people that were unified. They already had their own laws, and every clan was recognized.
