“God knows I gave my best in baseball at all times and no man on earth can truthfully judge me otherwise” (Jackson, 1). In this quote, “Shoeless” Joe Jackson is trying to convey that even though he was raised illiterate, he still tried his absolute best at life here on Earth, and that no one can judge him for that reason. This quote relates to the overall thesis because it helps prove that a person does not have to be literate in order to become an important historical figure. Overall, “Shoeless” Joe Jackson was an important political figure of 1920s American History because he was able to prove how he could overcome any obstacle, and he could still become a historical figure, even though he was illiterate his entire lifetime.

There were two different points of view discussed in the documents. The first view from “Appeal of the Cherokee Nation” showed how the Cherokee was trying to show the congress their point of view about moving from their homeland to a place they do not know. They made valid points why they were not willing to move and their first reason was how they valued their current home because it was the land of their ancestors and they honored their dead in these lands. The Cherokee believed that leaving to the western territory would provoke the western tribes to violence towards the Cherokee members. Andrew Jackson had a different point of view and he was wanting the Cherokee land to use their resources and make more room for white citizens. From his point of view the offer of paying for the
Andrew Jackson was born in 1767 between North Carolina and South Carolina, the Waxhaws region. His father died before he was even born because of a logging accident. He eventually became an orphan due to the rest of his family dying from war and sickness. He went to local schools and received an elementary education. A little later in life he became a lawyer and eventually bought land which was a big deal back in the day. He also fought in the war of 1812 and was considered a hero after he defeated the British in the Battle of New Orleans. After that he began his role in the government as a senator in Tennessee. That shortly ended after about only one year. He then took his shot at the presidency which he successfully
Andrew Jackson is on the twenty dollar bill. As with most people on United States money, it is most likely they did something memorable. It has been stated that he live a very controversial life, with people having different thoughts about him, both good and bad. With people having a variety of opinions regarding President Jackson, there are many opinions whether he should stay on the twenty dollar bill.

Whether Andrew Jackson’s Indian Removal Policies were ethical has come of debate from the time they were enacted and before. The time that Jackson was president has been fittingly named the Jacksonian Era. One of the iconic images of this era is a political cartoon that depicts President Jackson as “King Jackson the First” as he steps on the constitution and the Albany Plan of Union. I think that Jackson’s actions were not ethical.
If you were to look up the word great in the dictionary you’d get “of an extent, amount, or intensity considerably above the normal or average,” which I feel, seems to define Andrew Jackson as a president.
Bo Jackson is strong and resilient. He could throw a ball across a field and hit the scoreboard. He was ready for anything that could come to him. He wasn’t afraid to jump over a Volkswagon bug or a 40 foot ditch. He dunked a stick into a basketball goal when he was younger. He showed off to his classmates and other players on his teams when he had

Andrew Jackson was the seventh president of the United States, and arguably the most popular one.

Lastly, Andrew Jackson was also against African Americans, as shown in documents N and O.
Andrew Jackson was the 7th President of the United States. His face appears on the $20 dollar bill but there is discussion of removing him and replacing him with another well known figure. Looking back through the history of his time did Andrew Jackson do more harm than good. He was born March 15, 1767 in a log cabin on the frontier between the Carolinas. He was a “common man” so the common folk loved him. He was born during the time of slavery and Native Americans. The rules of today’s society were not in play yet.
Born into a non-aristocratic poor family, somewhere in the Carolina’s on March 14, 1767, was a man named Andrew Jackson. Jackson, also called “Old Hickory” was a very bold proactive man in American history. From being a military hero and founding the democratic party to enacting the trail of tears and dismantling the of the Bank of the United States, the man and his legacy are a prominent topic for scholarly debate. Some believe he was a great president and some believe he was the worse president. But if you look at it from a moral perceptive or in the eyes of a foreigner, Jackson’s legacy was far more villainous than heroic.
Andrew Jackson’s presidency is one of the more debated presidencies in American history. Many see him as a hero while others view him as opposite. Depending on which history book is read, portrayals of him are sometimes of “the common man,” who attacked a political system that ignored the will of the common citizens. Other texts would portray Jackson as tyrant, one who disrespected many of the institutions outlined in the Constitution. He is usually celebrated by some because he defended the rights of the common people. Others, however, look down upon his removal of the Native Americans, a movement known as the Trail of Tears. Both of these conclusions are correct in the judgement of Jackson’s presidency. Many events that occurred while he was in office helped the development of our nation while at the same time led up to the events prior to the Civil War.

Skin color doesn't define if one race is superior to other races. Jesse Owens was a participant in the 1936 Berlin Olympics. He was among the few African Americans who represented America.

Mary Emma Fitzgerald, Owen's mom, took care of him. Jesse Owen took a stand against racism at home and abroad through his defiant performance in the 1936 Berlin Olympics.
