This PowerPoint presentation covers the presidency of Andrew Jackson. It begins with an examination of the factors that brought Jackson to the White House, most importantly the "rise of the common man" to political power in America. It then delves into the concept of "Jacksonian Democracy" and provides a quick contrast between the ideology of Jefferson and Jackson. It then explores the major topics of Jackson's administration including the spoils system, the Nullification Crisis, Jackson's treatment of Native Americans, including the Trail of Tears, the "Bank War," and the birth of the Whig Party. This presentation is used in an AP United States history class and is based on Chapter 13 of The American Pageant.
