Product Description
This is a bundle of 2 highly animated, power point presentations on the presidency of Andrew Jackson & a summary of issues which led up to his election(s). Both presentations together number 35 slides. Each of the presentation slides are editable so you can change them to fit your individual needs.

Born in poverty, Andrew Jackson was born into a farming family of relatively modest means, somewhere near the then-unmarked border between NC and SC. During the American Revolutionary War Jackson, whose family supported the revolutionary cause served as a courier and was captured at age 13. He was mistreated by his British captors and he never forgot that treatment. He was hot-tempered and killed a man in a duel in 1806, over a matter of honor regarding his wife Rachel.

Jackson gained national fame through his role in the War of 1812, where he won decisive victories over the Indians and then over the main British invasion army at the Battle of New Orleans. His leadership in that conflict earned Jackson national fame as a military hero, and he would become America’s most influential, and polarizing, political figure during the 1820s and 1830s.

As a lawyer he helped found the state of TN in 1796 where he represented the state as a member of the U.S. House of Representatives and then in the U.S. Senate. After narrowly losing to John Quincy Adams in the contentious 1824 presidential election, Jackson returned 4 years later to win redemption, soundly defeating Adams and becoming the nation’s 7th President (1829-1837).

The emergence of 2 parties promoted popular interest in the election of 1828. Jackson’s party, sometimes called the Democratic-Republicans or simply Democrats, developed the first sophisticated national network of party organizations. Local party groups sponsored parades, barbecues, tree plantings, and other popular events designed to promote Jackson and the local slate.

The National-Republicans, the party of Adams and Henry Clay, lacked the local organizations of the Democrats, but they did have a clear platform: high tariffs, federal funding of roads, canals, and other internal improvements, aid to domestic manufactures, and development of cultural institutions.

The spoils system of political patronage, the tariff, and federal funding of internal improvements were major issues, but the most important was Jackson’s veto of the re-chartering of the Bank of the United States. National-Republicans attacked the veto, arguing that the Bank was needed to maintain a stable currency and economy. “King Andrew’s” veto, they asserted, was an abuse of executive power.

In defense of Jackson’s veto, Democratic-Republicans labeled the Bank an aristocratic institution–a “monster.” Suspicious of banking and of paper money, Jacksonian's opposed the Bank for giving special privileges to private investors at government expense and charged that it fostered British control of the American economy.
