ANDREW JACKSON SPOON EXHIBIT
Andrew Jackson, our 7th President was an aggressive and tough
general/politician with a stubborn macho personality.
He was a wealthy slave owner but he consistently supported the agenda
of the common man and his protection of popular democracy and
In 1828, Jackson supported a small limited government and he
dismantled the Bank of the US.
Even though he was a slave holder, he told the southern states that
they do NOT have the right to nullify Federal law (which
ultimately was a major cause of the Civil War).
He was a general which fought Indian Tribes and caused them untold
grief, but he also personally adopted an indian orphan boy.
Truly he was an enigma President.
