Another Andrew Jackson

Andrew Jackson, the
seventh president of the United states, was born on March
15, 1767, in the Waxhaw settlement on the western frontier
of South Carolina. Jackson was orphaned at the age of 14
and was brought up by his uncle. Jackson was born into a
poor family. When his parents died, he went to live with his
Uncle, who was a wealthy slave and land owner. As a result,
Jackson moved among wealthy people and property
owners, who monopolized the prestige and political influence
in the back country. So now he could see what the different
lives between the rich and the poor, he became really
popular by the common people and also was considered
part of the political movement and he led what was know as
the Jacksonian Democracy. He could see that the wealthy
were huge land owners or industrialized families, and the
poor families were small farmers. Jackson was the type who
wanted the land to be all American. Dealing with the Native
American policy, he forcibly removed southern tribes from
lands guaranteed then by federal treaties and the United
States Supreme Court decisions. Doing this gave him great
power and led the United States to a bigger nation, but what
does that say about the United States words. Because of
them, the Indians could not trust them any more. Jackson
was also against slavery. Even Modern historians observe
that Jackson was a large slave owner and that his party was
the enemy of free blacks and their rights. He was so against
African Americans, they denied anti-slavery pamphlets in the
United States Postal Service. I think the reason that he liked
slavery so much was because that his Uncle was a large
slave owner and he found that they are very useful and could
help make money a whole lot faster and cheaper then regular
labor. If Jackson was against slavery, I feel that the Slavery
issue would have ended a lot faster then it did in the
American History. Jackson did do a lot for the country and
also made the common people feel like they have a place in
today society. If it was just rich people running the country,
the rich people would do just what was good for them and
not for everyone. That way, the poor people have a chance
in the society that was so hard to control. Slavery was not
cooled down during his presidency, but it did not get worse
at least. Jackson showed a strong presidency during his term
and lead America in a good direction to follow. Sometimes
America needs a change in Rich vs Poor presidents.
