This 23 slide presentation traces the key events that occurred during President Jackson's administration. Events include the Tariff of Abomination with additional follow-up activities that check for understanding. The views of John C. Calhoun, Daniel Webster and Henry Clay are addressed reflecting the growing sectionalism during the mid-1800s. The bank crisis and the issue of the Indian Removal act are also presented.
Excerpts of Jackson's brilliant Nullification Crisis speech to citizens of South Carolina are used in a found poem activity. Students highlight specific excerpts of the speech in response to guided questions and arrange responses in creative order to highlight President Jackson's principle message.
