THE AGE OF JACKSON 1824-1840 The Election of 1824 1. Republican Party unchallenged at the national level. 2. In February 1824 Republicans selected William Crawford of Georgia as their partys presidential nominee. 3. The Kentucky legislature nominated Henry Clay. 4. a group of New England Republicans nominated

John Quincy Adams. 5. Buoyed by his fame as a war hero, Jackson received far more popular and electoral votes than his three rivals. 6. However, since Jackson did not receive a majority of the electoral votes the election went to the House of Representatives, which voted by states. The Election of 1824 7. As Speaker of the House, Clay

occupied a unique position of power. 8. Clay could use his position to influence the choice of the next president. 9. Clay despised Jackson as a military chieftain who was unfit for office. 10. Although Clay was not personally close to Adams, the two men were both nationalists and strong proponents of the American system. 11. Clays influence prevailed and Adams won the presidency. 12. Shortly after winning the House vote,

Adams named Clay his new Secretary of State. 13. Jacksons outraged supporters promptly accused Adams and Clay of a corrupt bargain that thwarted the will of the people by cheating Old Hickory out of the presidency. Did get it? The Corrupt Bargain of the presidential election of 1824 occurred primarily because a. John Quincy Adams won a majority of the

electoral college vote b. Henry Clay was most qualified to become president c. No candidate won a majority of the electoral college vote d. Henry Clay was dishonest Election of 1828 1. Adams political deal with Clay tarnished his presidency and energized Jacksons supporters. 2. Adams lacked personal charm and a common touch. 3. In contrast, Jackson was hailed as a military hero and

champion of the people. 4. Adams can write, Old Hickorys followers proudly boasted that Jackson can fight! 5. In the 1828 presidential election, Jackson swept the South and West and easily defeated Adams. Did I get it? In the election of 1828, the two states which provided Andrew Jackson with the greatest number of electoral votes were a. Tennessee and Kentucky b. South Carolina and Georgia

c. Pennsylvania and Virginia d. New York and Ohio Jacksonian Democracy 1. Jacksons election marked the beginning of a new era in American political history. 2. As the hero of the common man, Jackson vowed to include the voice of the people in the election process. 3. The Jacksonians dramatically expanded the suffrage to include virtually all white men. In addition, Jackson created a more open political system by replacing legislative caucuses with a party

nominating convention. 4. As a self-made soldier, politician, and planter, Jackson believed that the average American could quickly master most government jobs. Every man is as good as his neighbor, Jackson confidently declared. 5. supported a spoils system by rewarding loyal party workers with government jobs. 6. As the first president from the West, Jackson shared the frontiers distrust of the Eastern elite. He promised to represent the interests of the common man by attacking special privileges in American life.

The Tariff of Abominations and the Nullification Crisis 1. The Tariff of Abominations Tariffs traditionally raised revenue and protected American industry from European competitors. In 1828, Congress passed a protective tariff that set rates at record levels. Led by South Carolina, the Southern states branded the hated law the Tariff of Abominations.

Planters argued that while the industrial Northeast flourished, the South was forced to sell its cotton in a world market unprotected by tariffs and buy manufactured goods at exorbitant prices. The Tariff of Abominations and the Nullification Crisis 2. John C. Calhoun and the Doctrine of Nullification In 1828 Vice-President John C. Calhoun

anonymously wrote the South Carolina Exposition and Protest to denounce the Tariff of Abominations. Calhoun argued that the Union was a compact formed by sovereign states. If a state believed that a federal law exceeded the delegated powers of Congress, the state could declare the law null and void within its own boundaries. Calhouns Doctrine of Nullification used states rights arguments first formulated by Jefferson and Madison in the Kentucky and Virginia Resolutions. Calhoun did not advocate secession. Instead he

saw nullification as a viable option that would prevent disunion. The Tariff of Abominations and the Nullification Crisis 3. The Webster-Hayne Debate, 1830 In January 1830, Senator Robert Hayne of South Carolina vigorously defended states rights and Calhouns doctrine of nullification in a Senate speech that attracted national attention. Haynes speech triggered a national debate with Senator Daniel Webster of Massachusetts. Renowned as the nations great orator, Webster argued that the Constitution was created by the people, not the states. The Supreme Court, not the

states, had the power to decide the constitutionality of a law. Webster denounced states rights and concluded by thundering, liberty and union, now and forever, one and inseparable! The Tariff of Abominations and the Nullification Crisis 4. Jackson and the Force Bill South Carolina refused to back down. The South Carolina legislature adopted an ordinance of nullification that repudiated the tariff acts of 1828 and 1832. Pres. Jackson angrily called nullification an impractical absurdity and warned South Carolina that disunion by armed

force is treason. He then called upon Congress to pass a Force Bill authorizing him to use the army to enforce federal laws in South Carolina. As tensions mounted, Henry Clay proposed a new compromise tariff that would gradually reduce duties over the next ten years. The compromise worked and South Carolina rescinded its nullification ordinance. Did I get it? According to John C. Calhoun, the proper response of the South Carolina legislature to

the Tariff of Abominations was to a. b. c. d. Declare it null and void Pay it in full Keep tariff revenues within the state Secede from the Union Jackson and the

Indian Removal Act 1. The approximately 125,000 Native Americans who lived east of the Mississippi were surrounded by white settlers who wanted the tribes resettled across the Mississippi. 2. Congress responded by passing the Indian

Removal Act providing for the exchange of Indian lands in the East for government lands in the newly established Indian Territory. Jackson and the Indian Removal Act 3. Worcester v. Georgia, 1832 The Cherokees legally challenged Pres.Jacksons removal order. In Worchester v. Georgia Chief

Justice John Marshall upheld the Cherokee Nations legal right to their land. The Supreme Court is dependent upon the President to enforce its decisions. As a famous Indian fighter, Jackson harbored a well-known animosity toward Native Americans. Jackson responded to the Worchester v. Georgia decision by defiantly declaring, John Marshall

has made his decision, now let him Jackson and the Indian Removal Act 4. The Trail of Tears Jackson defied the Courts decision and pushed forward with his policy of removing the remaining eastern tribes west of the Mississippi. In 1838, the U.S. Army forcibly removed about 17,000 Cherokees from their ancestral lands and marched them on an 800-mile journey to the Indian Territory. About

one-fourth of the Cherokees died from disease and exhaustion on what poignantly (sorrowfully) came to be known as the Trail of Tears. The Bank War 1. The twenty-year charter of the Second Bank of the United

States was scheduled to expire in 1836. 2. Jackson regarded the bank as a monster that concentrated special financial privileges in the hands of an aristocratic elite. 3. July 1832, Jackson vetoed a bill to re-charter the bank. In his veto message, Jackson denounced the bank as a vehicle used by the rich and powerful to bend the acts of government to their selfish purposes. 4. Without the banks restraining policies, state-chartered pet banks expanded credit, flooded the country with paper currency, and promoted rampant speculation in western lands and transportation projects. 5. The demise of the Second Bank of the United States

contributed to a financial panic in 1837. The Panic of 1837 evolved into a lengthy economic slump as businesses failed and unemployment rose. Whig Political The Rise of the Whigs 1. The South Carolina nullification crisis, the Indian Removal Act and the battle over the national bank were all issues that provoked national debates.

2. Political opponents led by Henry Clay and Daniel Webster hated Jackson and derisively called him King Andrew I. Jacksons rivals left the Democratic Party and formed the Whig Party. The Rise of the Whigs 3. The Whigs favored protective tariffs, internal improvements, and a renewed national bank. 4. they were united by their

animosity toward Jackson and his chosen successor Martin Van Buren. The Rise of the Whigs 1840 5. In 1840 the Whigs nominated William Henry Harrison to oppose Van Buren. 6. The Whigs emphasized Harrisons heroic victories over Indians and

blamed Van Ruin for the economic slump. 7. Harrisons election marked a new democratic style of running political campaigns. 8. the Whigs adopted the log cabin and hard cider as campaign symbols to connect with the common man. 9. Many historians consider the log cabin and hard cider campaign of 1840 the first modern election because both parties actively

campaigned among the voting masses. Did I get it? The Whig Party attracted all of the following EXCEPT a. supporters of Clays American System b. Northern industrialists c. Evangelical Protestants d. Supporters of Andrew Jackson
