These 7 resources are a starter for a unit on Andrew Jackson and his presidency. It touches on his issues with banks, nullification, conflict with Native Americans, it discusses how Van Buren became President, the Panic of 1837, William Henry Harrison's one month term, and more!
One activity has students read a primary source account of the Election of 1828 and Jackson's inauguration.
