This powerpoint discusses the elections of both 1824 and 1828 as well as the presidency and legacy of Andrew Jackson as the common man president. Slides cover the spoils system, the kitchen cabinet, the common man in changing America, the destruction of the national bank, the nullification crisis (and how state rights would eventually lead to civil war), the Trail of Tears and the Seminole War. Also, John Quincy Adams's presidency and post-presidency legacy are also covered. The last slide also has a link to a great youtube video which summarizes the Jackson presidency. A great powerpoint for covering some complicated issues with students.
