Transcript of Was Andrew Jackson a good president?

Jackson strengthened presidency while in office.
He paid off national debt
He gained Florida by invading it
He adopted an Indian baby when it's village was destroyed
He strengthened foreign relations
He won the battle of New Orleans, protecting the U.S. from British invasion
Bonus Fun Facts
His first two years of presidency had a major scandal- his Secretary of War married Peggy Timberlake, who rich socialites didn't approve of
He fired a lot of his cabinet and replaced them with unqualified people.
He ordered the killing of many Indians in the Creek battles
There will probably always be contreversy about Andrew Jackson and his presidency. And while I don't approve of the Indian Removal Acts, or his killing of innocents, he is the only president to pay off nation debt. Since Jackson was for the common man, he expanded voting to the common man, which eventually leads to women's rights and ending sufferage.

Jackson's reputation was tarnished by duels, which is a reason he didn't get elected the first time he ran
He approved the removal of thousands of Indians called the Indian Removal Acts
