Jackson as president

A. What were the two absolute beliefs Jackson had as a political leader and brought to the presidency with him. (these come from the power points, not your book. Look them up and write them as A) [Nothing but these two will be acceptable]

B. Choose one of the three crises of Jackson's administrations we discussed in class. Describe what happened (Briefly, but correctly). Then

C. Explain how Jackson's behavior in your chosen crisis carried out one of his two key beliefs about the role of the federal government and presidential leadership


A. 1. The two absolute beliefs that Andrew Jackson had as a political leader and brought to his presidency were:
2. He believed that the functions of federal government should be reduced. So he promoted such economic programs that decreased the governmental power.
3. He was engaged in committed forceful presidential leadership. He believed that preservation of union is necessary to achieve that.

B. The Nullification Crisis: During 1832-1833 the political confrontation between the federal government and the South Carolina state is known as the Nullification crisis. The tariff of 1828 was employed in order to decrease the foreign competition in the American manufacturing market and imposed high tax upon the imported manufacturers. The southern states argued that the tariff was only in favor of the northern industry. John C. Calhoun, the vice president at Andrew Jackson’s presidency and inhabitant of South Carolina proposed the nullification theory that made the tariff unenforceable and unconstitutional. This constitutional theory helped to establish the state’s right to nullify the acts of federal government within its boundaries. The ordinance of Nullification declared that if the federal government enforced to collect any tariffs from the southern state, it could apply secession. However, South Carolina did not succeed to gather support from other states.

C. President Andrew Jackson transformed the federal tariff into law that South Carolina did not agree with. In response to this, President Andrew Jackson on December 10thof the same year issued “Proclamation to the People of South Carolina,” in order to reestablish the federal government’s supremacy over the state government. He passed the Force Bill in 1833 that allowed him to use military forces to collect the tariff duties in necessary. This made the president a hero to the American nationalists of that time. The March 15 convention of South Carolina nullified the Force Bill.
