Today, Andrew Jackson is known far and wide in the United States as having been a large advocate of democracy. He proclaimed himself a Democrat, and while running for president, he campaigned that he would change the system to help directly represent the people instead of through representatives. Being a Democrat running against a Republican, most people would think that Andrew Jackson would be the most anti-republican person ever. However, that was not entirely the case. Jackson was neither anti-republican nor the most Republican person one can imagine. On a scale of -5 to 5, with -5 being anti-republican and 5 being extremely republican, I would rate Jackson as a -1. According to Rimini, “Jackson himself was fiercely committed to democracy.”
Andrew Jackson was the 7 president of the United States from 1829 to 1837. He was elected by popular vote and he sought to act as the direct representative of the common man. He received sporadic education and read law for two years. He engaged in brawls and killed a man in a duel. He was a major general in the war of 1812 and he was born in 1767 in the Carolinas. He was nicknamed Old Hickory.
Both Lincoln and Johnson had different ways to approach Reconstruction. Both did support the Ten Percent Plan. This plan allowed each southern state that were part of the rebellion to return to the Union. Just as long as 10% of their voters would take a loyalty oath and they approve the Thirteenth Amendment to abolish slavery. Johnson wasn’t as moral as Lincoln didn’t have the same political judgement. Lincoln wanted to help the South rejoin the Union. His primary concern was what was best for the Union. The South needed to rejoin the Union on his terms. Johnson had once talked tough against southern farmers, he allied himself with ex-Confederate leaders, and he forgave them when they appealed for pardons. This delighted southerners, of course,
I think that Andrew Jackson was a good president because he helped our country in many ways. He helped our country grow and stand together. He even fought against the British in the war! So in my opinion, I think that Andrew Jackson was a good
Most people agree that a president should be a good leader, with strong beliefs, with the will to stay strong in what you think, and to do what you say you will, Grover Cleveland unlike some presidents did these things. Furthermore Grover Cleveland met most of these standards which is way he was a good president. Grover Cleveland was a democrat who, was president in 1885-1889, and 1893-1897. We can learn from the fact that he was elected twice he was a good president.
Andrew Jackson was known during his presidency due to the significant events and changes. First, he promoted democracy. To promote democracy, he allowed more citizens to take part in government (Spoil System) and vetoed the bill to renew the charter to prevent rich people from taking advantage. Also, he expanded white male suffrage (the right to vote). Second, Nullification Crisis. South Carolina nullified the new tariff. However, with Jackson’s firm stand, no other state supported South Carolina. Jackson supported a compromise tariff proposed by Henry Clay (it lowered tariffs) and ask Congress to pass the Force Bill to enforce the tariff in South Carolina. Third, Indian Removal Act. Native Americans were forced to sign treaties agreeing to
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.
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.
Andrew Johnson became the President of the United States after the assassination of President Lincoln. Johnson stepped into office after the Civil War, which was a fragile time for the country. As president after the war, it was Johnson’s duty to assist in unifying the southern slave states and the northern rebellious population, as one country. This was a difficult task to complete, especially after the assassination of a former president who really helped in the Civil War and with slavery. Johnson tried to quickly restore the states in the Union, however his actions lead to a presidential impeachment. Due to his violations and counterproductive acts, President Andrew Johnson deserved his impeachment.
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.
President Cleveland or even any another person would be a better candidate then Andrew Jackson, for the simple fact that Andrew Jackson promoted slavery and even had a 150 slaves him self. I’m also sure that I don’t have to mention the Indian Genocide Andrew Jackson led, which is known as the Indian Removal Act that was supported by Jackson all the way as a matter of fact he was the main force behind this cruel campaign. Which ultimately lead to the trail of tears which is basically where 46,000 Native Americans where forced to go west in the worst conditions possible, which is where more then a third of their population died because of exhaustion and
Andrew Johnson is came from a poor family and was not educated until later years. He was born on December 29, 1808 and died July 31, 1875/ He was the seventh president.
In my opinion, Andrew Jackson was a good president because he was one of the most successful and interesting presidents. The Common Man always held special place in America, but with Jackson, he rose to the top of the American political power system. In the campaign of 1828, Jackson, know as “Old Hickory,” triumphed over the aristocratic, reclusive and unpopular incumbent President John Quincy Adams. Andrew Jackson was also the only President of the United States to pay off the national debt on January 8, 1835. Jackson’s strong personality and controversial way incited the development of an opposition party, the Whigs.
I believe that the results of Reconstruction have been mixed and i believe that the economy is a problem that needs to be fixed. By not dictating who can have what job based on their race Reconstruction can meet its goal of creating equality for all.
How could a signature transform America? Particularly, how did L.B.J’ s signature change America? Johnson was in the House of Representatives for 11 years, help a position in the Senate for 12 years, and was majority leader. He was then chosen as Vice President for John F Kennedy, despite losing the Democratic Party’s nomination, but 3 years later when J.F.K. was assassinated he took office as president. While holding office, Johnson signed the Civil Rights Act of 1964 giving all Americans of any any race the same opportunity. Why did L.B.J. sign the Civil Rights Act Of 1964? I believe he did for politics; If political decisions are calculated and in one’s own self-interest, then the Public Opinion Polls, the Sincerity Question, and the 1957
