Andrew Jackson was one of the greatest presidents who made very difficult decisions for our country. Although his choices were not always the popular decision, he made choices that were always promoting democracy. The things that make a good democracy are: giving people a say in government, having a good leader that you can trust to make wise decisions, peace and stability between each country and other states, and having equal power in the government (checks and balances). Andrew Jackson came into office with a popular vote and great support. His supporters viewed him as a man of the people. Andrew Jackson promoted democracy well. This is true because he kept peace and stability between the nation and he provided people equal rights.
The time has come to make a judgement of the great Andrew Jackson, the 7th president of the United States from 1829~1837. Although some people didn’t like Jackson very well due to very few of his decisions, he made many good decisions during his presidency. Andrew Jackson should be remembered as a hero of the common man due to his unifying leadership, generous approach of governing, and concern for economic equality.
In this attack, he moved about 20% of United States’ money into private banks. These banks were known as ‘’pet’’ banks because they politically supported Andrew Jackson. This causes what we know as The Bank War. Andrew Jackson enlarged credit by doing away with the bank. Andrew Jackson then moved the money from those banks into the private ones that only supported him. This caused the new banks’ failure by issuing the Specie Circular order in 1836. The government land required payment to be in gold. The National Banks of United States collapsed, this caused what we know as the Panic of 1837, that Andrew Jackson’s successor had to deal with. This was much unorganized, banks got removed, etc. The lack of national banks was one of the many speculations that contributed policies that caused the market to crash in the year of 1837. This led to six long years of depression for the United States of America, and is another great reason why Andrew Jackson, also known as “Old Hickory”, was one of the worst presidents the United States ever had in its great history of US
Andrew Jackson was a contradictory president who had many constitutional and unconstitutional arguments when it came to using his executive power, such as when he vetoed the Maysville Road Bill and the Second National Bank, which was either based on his own personal bias, or how beneficial it would be to the United States. Therefore justifying whether he was vetoing a bill based on actually analyzing the institutions and effects of their removal or result of arbitrary decisions with little analysis is based on ones perspective. The vetoing of the Second National Bank and the Maysville Road Bill is great example of how he used his vetoing powers and in what regard.
Andrew Jackson was born between North and South Carolina in 1767. His father died days before his birth, and Jackson was difficult child. He was an incredibly unruly child. At age 13, he enlisted in the Revolutionary War, he was captured by British officer.after he went home, Jackson's mother died and he had to take care of himself. after he went home, Jackson's mother died and he had to take care of himself. Jackson did not know how to hold his tongue and got to fight often but, at age 17 he became more responsible and got a degree in law. Was Andrew Jackson a minute of people was he a dictator? I believe Andrew Jackson was a dictator because of the fact that he appointed Samuel Swartwout,
Even though Hamilton wasn’t one of our presidents, he showed great leadership throughout his terms in the secretary of treasury, he practiced law after the wars, and he also showed leadership being one of our Founding Fathers (who were responsible winning our wars against England.) After Hamilton was drafted for the Constitutional Convention by New Year, Hamilton got to attend a meeting in Philadelphia. While Alexander was in Philadelphia he had little to no impact on the convention because he didn’t fully represent New York. Even though Hamilton didn’t represent the Federalist (who strongly opponents to sign the new constitution), Hamilton signed the new constitution as an individual. Then after Hamilton signed the for the new constitution, he got to write “at least two-thirds of the essays” that included some of the most important ones that would explain the powers of each of the branches.
During Andrew Jackson’s presidency, he was not the best president. Some might consider him the worst. Most of Jackson’s actions during his presidency were deemed unconstitutional and illegal but were allowed due to the people’s support for Jackson. His plans for America didn’t include women, blacks or Indians. Jackson replaced all the Cabinet members with his selection friends, also known as the “Kitchen Cabinet”. This became to be known as the spoil system. His group was later disbanded due to the Eaton affair thus making it more difficult for the next group. In 1833, Andrew Jackson got rid of the Second Bank of the United States and redistribute the federal funds to the state banks. This eventually became one of the main contributing factors
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.
Andrew Jackson presidency focused a lot on small government and pleasing the common man. He attempted to shut down national banks to make government smaller. Jackson also enforces things like the Indian Removal Policy, which strengthened the bond between Jackson and the common man. Jackson was the first and only president to make the country debt too. All of these impacted are government today very much as well as other governments around the world.
Andrew Jackson vs. Henry Clay: Democracy and Development in Antebellum America is a book written by Harry L. Watson. Harry L. Watson writes the different stances of the presidential race in the Antebellum Era in America. He is very unbiased in his writing, clearly stating each presidential candidate. Andrew Jackson’s beliefs are clearly democratic, meaning he believed that a growing wealth and power in the business community may erode the equality of ordinary citizens. This party was also known as the ‘Jackson Party’. Jackson was born in Tennessee, he supported the power of businesses, he was quite violent, but a great leader. On the other hand, Henry Clay was a part of the Whig party, sometimes known as the Republican party. He believed in the growth of the economy and businesses. His party
Andrew Jackson had a dislike for Henry Clay so he started a veto process to stop the bank that Clay was involved with. Jackson also believed this bank to be unconstitutional. After Jackson destroyed the bank he made sure the money was returned back to the states where he thought it belonged and would help the economy grow.
The Federal Reserve Act 1913 was a U.S. legislation that created the current Federal Reserve System.
Jackson was born in the year 1767 to a poor family. When he was only 13 years old he was captured from the British during the revolutionary war. As he got older he found himself in the military and he was called a national hero when he fought in the battle of 1812. He served for two terms as president and Jacksonian or is followers say that he was democratic where the people are heard. But some people think differently. Therefore, Jackson is undemocratic because of the number of slaves he had at the time he was president, the Native Americans, and he thought national bank was unconstitutional.
Gordon 's premise in Hamilton 's Blessing is that the national debt can be used positively in order to boost the economy of a country like the United States. In the book, Gordon uses economic history and theory to examine the start, rise and decline of the United States debt. The author opens his book by stating that this country was born in debt, and this debt has become so high that concerned individuals no longer think about it. Hamilton 's Blessing charts the history of the national debt since when the central bank of the United States was founded in 1971, up to modern days. The intellectual architect of this creation was Alexander Hamilton, the first Treasury Secretary as well as a central figure who had a deep impact on the economic
