Andrew Jackson Times
King Andrew the Villain
As the seventh president of the United States, Andrew Jackson's actions portray him more as a villain than a hero. He was a murderer, expander of executive power, and he was seen as greedy, which gave him the title of "King Andrew". President Jackson was known for killing Native Americans during the War of 1812, and for this reason, he supported the Removal Act of 1838. This act forced Native Americans out of their settlements, and caused the death of tons of them during the Trail of Tears. Jackson was also a president who believed in a strict government with a stricter president leading it, which is why he used the executive power a lot. He used the president's veto power, and established banks that benefited his political supporters. Many people, such as the Whigs, thought he was abusing his power. And all these actions began to hurt the country's economy.
Placing money into local banks was a way of Jackson rewarding his political supporters. He called this “rotation in office”; however, his rivals saw it as favoring his supporters and called it the “spoils system”.
Pet Banks = Panic
Jackson’s election allowed more participation of the people since property qualifications were already being eliminated. This is when democracy was truly seen in the country.
Democracy meant having political parties, and that's when the Whig Party was established because Jackson was using the executive power too much.
"The Democratic party was Jackson's child; the national two-party system was his legacy."
Being a well known killer of Native Americans, Andrew Jackson supported the southern states’ to take Indian lands and move the Indians, where he officially supported in the Removal Act of 1830. The relocation from Georgia to Oklahoma took place in the winter of 1838-1839, caused at least ¼ of the 18,000 Indians to die during the forced walk later known as the
Trail of Tears
After Jackson divided small banks and printed more money, inflation occurred and it became worse for wage workers and everyone. As a result, everyone suffered from the economic collapse, in which is called the
Panic of 1837.
King Andrew Jackson
During Andrew Jackson’s rule, English Whigs strongly opposed him because they went against total monarchy. The American Whigs felt that Jackson held too much power from the executive branch, that he turns into “King Andrew”.
