Why Andrew Jackson is Guilty
Transcript of Why Andrew Jackson is Guilty
Jackson was well known for doing things his own way. For instance in one occasion, during the case Worcester v. Georgia, as president he denied to enforce Supreme Court John Marshall's ruling and went beyon the ruling and did things his own way.
Failure to Uphold Treaties
The Hopewell Treaty/ Treaties was signed in 1785 and 1786. The first treaty was signed in 1785 with the Cherokee people and 3 U.S. representatives: Andrew Pickens, Benjamin Hawkins, and Joseph Martin. The treaties promised the Natives peace, friendship, and defined the boundaries between the Indian lands and the settlers' homes.
Crimes Against Humanity
The Trail of Tears was an example of crimes against humanity, since it was the forcible transportation of a group of people. Jackson also persecuted the Native people for political and racial reasons.
President Andrew Jackson has a well known history of having a fiery temper and being physically violent towards others. He was fond of dueling and killed Charles Dickinson during one of the many duels.
