How does regulated federalism and national standards connect with the Supreme Court? The Supreme Court holds the responsibility of deciding upon the fundamental rights of American citizens. Over time, the Supreme Court, along with the national government, has improved America’s national standards. Primarily with grants-in-aid and regulations, the Supreme Court and national government have allocated money to local governments, under the condition that they are spent for purposes outlined by Congress.

The Bank War, problems with Indians, and slavery were all examples used in the book to depict the political climate of the time period, and how parties were transformed. The book gave an overview of the era and placed Andrew Jackson as a character within the story of the development of America, not the focal point.
