Jackson developed the economy in a way that no man had too much but every man were financially stable. Jackson built new roads and made other infrastructural improvements especially in the south that were of benefit to the more working class “common man”. Jackson also introduced many Acts and Movements that would help to improve the United States and improve the lives of all US citizens. Andrew Jackson, a former orphan and a war hero, was a popular choice when he was elected seventh President of the United States in 1828. This was based on the fact that Jackson did not hail from a wealthy or “elite” background but from the working class western state of Tennessee.
Calhoun addresses similar concerns to that of Henry Clay in his speech made on March 4, 1850. Calhoun believes that stirring up of the slavery issue has the potential to end the Union, and is calling for a solution to preserve the union. He proposed the question what truly endangered the union. He believed the North attempting to take away the rights of the Southerners, and the disruption of the equilibrium in government are two primary causes. He felt the North had too much power in government as there were more free states than slave states.
In the three decades leading up to the outbreak of the American Civil War in 1861, the abolitionist movement, through direct actions and sentiment against slavery, sowed radical reactionary responses across the southern slave states. While the actions and views of abolitionists did not reflect the widespread or majority opinion of the free states, the reciprocal effect of the abolitionist propaganda and violent actions led to greater polarization in America over the topic of slavery and its expansion. Additionally, the various actions performed by the northern based abolitionist created an aura of fear and paranoia amongst the ruling slaveholding political elite in the south who increasingly saw the actions as an attack on the southern slave
Andrew Jackson Andrew Jackson was the first democratic president and to survive the Revolutionary War. He was liked for his hard work during the wars and the for leading troops.

Because of session the nation fell apart. (Mrs. Wise) I would say the main cause of the civil war is slavery. North didn't like slavery and the south wanted it. They made the Missouri compromise but north thought slavery should be emitted from America so they were going to have to fight.
During most of his adult life, Andrew jackson was a slaveholder. and the amount of slaves he owned increased over time. He was strongly against abolitionists who wanted to see the end of slavery. He feared they would lead to sectional conflict, possible disunion and slave revolts. That made him think that they would want a dictator to restore order, making democracy dead.
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.
These divisions went far beyond cotton and economics. A country continuously divided on this major issue could not have survived. The fight over the expansion of slavery into the territories is a persistent problem in antebellum history. This problem caused strife between North and South lasting decades.
In 1829 David Walker wrote the Appeal to the Colored Citizens of the World. Walker pleas for the immediate abolishment of captivity and the same rights for Black people. This was a ground-breaking thing for a Black man to say openly at that time. It was also very risky. Because of what he was doing, Walker put his life in danger.
There were three political groups: Jacksonians, Whigs and neutrals. The Jacksonian group were democrats, the supporters were usually artisans, laborers and small farmers. They wanted the local businesses to flourish and to detach from Europe. On the other hand, Whigs were the merchants and wealthy people, who came together as a result of their shared hatred of Jackson. The leader of the Whig organization, Henry Clay, tried to persuade the people that if the easterners would help build and pay for the transportation of the products, that the westerners would support the tariffs on the products.
Jackson was elected in 1828 over John Quincy Adams, as he appealed to the common man and in doing so won over their vote, however, he would advocate for the common man but act in ways that often benefited the himself and the upper class. He did this all in the name of the best interests for the lower-class average citizen. His followers were known as Jacksonian Democrats. When regarding social, political, and economic matters the Jacksonian Democrats regarded themselves as “guardians of the Democracy”, this however was not the case. In reality they simply guarded their own interests as well as supported Jefferson in whatever course he chose.
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.
If there was no split, the Civil War could have been prevented. This was called the sectional crisis between the North and the South. The North believed that slavery was immoral and wrong whereas the South depended on their slaves. The Mexican-American War was the start of the Civil War.
From the late 1820s to the 1830s, there was a strongly democratic presence in the United States government, due to the Presidency of Andrew Jackson. The Democratic Party strived to be “protectors of the Constitution,” by following it strictly, and promising citizens the rights and liberties contained within it, however, this was only partially carried out. The party did work to prevent the federal government from becoming too powerful, as evident in their abolition of the Second National Bank of the United States. However, Daniel Webster accused Jackson of undermining social justice and states’ rights, saying that the majority of states supported the Second National Bank, and the federal government was acting based on their own special interests.
