What happened in the elections of 1824 and 1828? Andrew Jackson ran for President in 1824 and 1828. In 1824, he lost to John Quincy Adams. He ran again in 1828 and won the election by far.
What is the Spoils System? The system or practice in which public offices with their emoluments and advantages are at the disposal of the victorious party for its own purposes.
What is a Tariff? An official list or table showing the duties or customs imposed by a government on imports or exports.
What was happening with the Bank of the United States and Supreme Court? Jackson decided that the Bank of the United States needed to go since it was unconstitutional. This was good for the commoners, but bad for the rich. He didn't renew its charter, and it died out. The Supreme Court censured Jackson for abolishing the Bank.
What was the Trail of Tears? Who made the Indians march and what impact did it make? The Trail of Tears was what the Cherokee Indians called the long, hard march to Oklahoma. Jackson forced the Indians to march. The impact on the Indians was huge. Of the 17,000 that left, only 14,000 made it. After that, they started killing each other.
What was the Indian Removal Act of 1830? The Indian Removal Act forced thousands of Indians to leave their lands and march to Oklahoma in the middle of winter. Jackson ignored the treaty he signed that said they could stay. The Supreme Court ruled with Jackson and said they needed to leave.
Who were the "Five Civilized Tribes"? 5 tribes- the Creek, Cherokee, Seminoles, Chickasaw, Choctaw- that had adopted many white ways like farming, reading and writing. The Cherokee had their own written language, a newspaper, and a constitution based off of the United States Constitution.
