Andrew Jackson A Villain

A Killer

Since Jackson had married a woman who already had a husband, his wife was scorned for being a bigamist. When someone publicly attacked her. Jackson challenged this man to a duel. After being shot in the chest, he didn't even stumble and raised his gun, shooting and killing the other man.
Jackson said his last regrets were that he didn't hang john c. Calhoun...
And shoot Henry clay.

A Power Abuser

when jackson tried to destroy the United States Bank, the supreme court ruled the bank constitutional. and when congress tried to pass a bill extending its charter, he vetoed it. After vetoing the bill, he starved the bank to death by taking out all federal funds and DEPOSITING them into state banks.
Supreme court ruled that the cherokee were a SOVEREIGN nation, but jackson responded by saying...
He has made a decision, now let him [try to] enforce it!
...And proceeded to force the Cherokee out with the power of the federal army.

People May Say...

...That jackson helped the country expand...
...but He did it at the cost of many native people's lives and families.
