King Andrew the First

This 1833 cartoon is a great way of exploring the sometimes controversial presidency of Andrew Jackson. Although this refers to the action regarding the Bank, it would be interesting to analyze other actions taken during his presidency.

We have included a copy of the cartoon along with questions and answers.

President Jackson on Indian Removal


The Indian Removal Act, passed by Congress in May of 1830, was meant to open up lands to white settlement.

President Andrew Jackson believed that this would allow progress and civilization to prosper in these areas and perhaps even save the Indians themselves.

We have included his December 1830 address to Congress in which he justified the policy.

Here is a copy of the transcript of the speech as well as questions and answers for students.
