Andrew Jackson and John Ross are two important historical figures when it comes to American democracy. When the United States was in a major constitutional crisis, these two men led the way back to greatness. They had quite a few things in common but they were two completely different people. Andrew Jackson is a person that we all know, or at least we think we know him (p. 1). He was both a general and a president, plus, he is on the twenty dollar bill; however, there is more to him than just that.
Alexander Hamilton was an American statesman and one of the Founding Fathers of the United States, though he never became president. He promoted the U.S. Constitution, as well as founding nation 's financial system, the Federalist Party, the United States Coast Guard, and The New York Post newspaper. As the first Secretary of the Treasury, Hamilton wrote most of the economic policies of the George Washington administration. He fought the Democratic-Republican Party led by Thomas Jefferson and James Madison. They criticized Hamilton for being too friendly toward Britain and to monarchy in
But Sarah said “In 1805, Vice President Aaron Burr was presiding over the Senate (freshly indicted for the murder of Alexander Hamilton), and he offered this advice. He said something like this. You are a great deliberative body. But a truly great Senate would have a cleaner rule book. Yours is a mess.
Tupac and suge knight were both bloods and they assaulted orlando anderson because a crip robbed a fellow death row record associate. But anderson always denied that he had anything to do with tupac’s deathand he was never charged for it. On a documentary called “murder rap inside the tupac and biggie murders” a man named greg kading who was a form LAPD cop said that P.Diddy paid a crips gang member 1 million dollars to duane keefe to kill tupac.

He served as Columbia County surrogate from 1808 lasting until 1812, in which he was elected New York senate. He was a livid supporter of the administrations war effort during the War of 1812-a war between Britain and America that lasted two years-and helped by offering his political power. Soon after 1820, Martin Van Buren joined the “Bucktail” faction, exploring ideas of the New York Republican party. They gained a huge influence with Martin Van Buren, but in 1821 Martin Van Buren was voted United Stated Senate and left the party behind. He later emerged as a leader for President Andrew Jackson, which was rewarded by being appointed Secretary of State.
“…his staff, which bore the likeness of a great black snake, so curiously wrought that it might almost be seen to twist and wriggle itself like a living serpent. This, of course, must have been an ocular deception, assisted by the uncertain light.” The staff that was “seen to twist and wriggle itself like a living serpent” represents evil and temptations. Throughout the Bible the snake is a symbol for evil and is understood as the head of temptations for the fact that the snake is what tempted Eve to eat from the forbidden tree. As said by a man named Aslan in a short synopsis of the symbolism in this quote, he says, “Take note that his man constantly offers Goodman Brown his staff to support him on the journey.” The detail about the staff that is always being offered to Brown represents the sin and temptations constantly given to people. The devil also tells Brown to use the staff in order to travel faster and as Eve ate the forbidden fruit and was condemned for disobeying God, Brown was “condemned for his weakness by losing his innocence” (Jill 2012).
One of the most famous American gangsters, Al Capone, also known as "Scarface," rose to infamy as the leader of the Chicago Outfit during the Prohibition era. Before being sent to Alcatraz Prison in 1934 for a tax evasion conviction, he had amassed a personal fortune estimated at $100 million as the head of the infamous crime syndicate. Early Years Far from being a poor immigrant from Italy who turned to crime for making a living, Al Capone, born January 17, 1899, was from a respectable and professional family. His father, Gabriele, was one of thousands of immigrants who arrived in New York in 1894. He was a 30 year old man, educated and from Naples, where he earned a living as a barber.
Historically, the Christian faith had predicted that the Messiah was to be a war hero. The fight is given detail in the poem by “But Beowulf grappled and gripped him hard, / Struggled up on his elbow the shepherd of sins…” (Beowulf 566-567) The Kenning “the shepherd of sins” is Biblical irony as it represents the Antichrist. Once again, this reiterates the idea that Grendel is from the lineage of Cane. In “Beowulf, the Old Testament, and The Regula Fidei,” Christopher M. Cain illuminates the inherent contradictions and similarities in Beowulf and Bible scripture. Cain notices that “Wyrd is used to translate both fate and fortune.
He challenged that giving charters for banks and/or corporations and favoring the financial interests of the social elite vs. another, is in straight violation of the equal liberty beliefs of republicanism. The most significant undertaking, perhaps, of Jackson’s presidency would be when the Jacksonians started a controversial war against the United States Bank, which is ran by Nicholas Biddle and is the sole depository of federal funds. This took place throughout his entire presidency. His veto on the United States Bank rechartering, his transfer of federal funds to his favorite state banks, and his persistence of special payments for federal lands had there unintentional results of creating financial rollercoaster in the absence of the policies of the United States Bank, the ramifications of which weren’t fully realized until after he left
