4 John Quincy Adams Corrupt Bargain doesn t help win over public, even though he most likely didn t cut a deal Respected, but not necessarily popular Didn t play Spoils system (Patronage) Wanted Roads, Schools, Observatory Tried to curb over speculation in west Tried to deal with Cherokee fairly

10 Voter Turnout: Large Increases in the number of voters
11 Why Increased Democratization? White male suffrage increased Party nominating committees Voters chose their state s slate of Presidential electors. Spoils system Rise of Third Parties, interests groups, sectional issues to oppose Democrats Whigs, Know-Nothings Change in campaigning style more stumping
12 What caused Democracy to Grow? Growth of Market Economy Greater understanding of Banks, Tariffs, and Internal Improvements by all, especially those in the West Panic of 1819 caused hatred and mistrust of Bank by West & South Missouri Compromise Importance of Growth or Abolition of Slavery Causes greater voter turnouts More Campaigning necessary Kissing Babies By 1831, National Nominating Convention vs. States Holding own Nominating Conventions
13 Why Increased Democratization? Popular campaigning (parades, rallies, floats, etc.) Two-party system returned in the 1832 election: Dem-Reps Natl. Reps.(1828) Whigs (1832) Republicans (1854) Democrats (1828)

20 Opinions of 1830 Webster: Liberty and Union, now and forever, one and inseparable. Jackson: Our Federal Union it must be preserved. Calhoun: The Union, next to our liberty, most dear.
21 Tariff War: Nullification Crisis Tariff of 1828 raises to 45% - ploy by Jacksonians Tariff of Abominations Southerners hate high tariff, believe they are paying to protect North, made goods more expensive S. Carolina tries to nullify it, but can t
22 Tariff War Tariff of 1832 lowers to 35% Using Calhoun s (now dedicated to Nullification) ideas, Nullies void both tariffs in S. Carolina (SC Exposition & Protest) Threaten Secession would dissolve the Union Jackson threatens force to collect tariffs Daniel Webster Now for Tariff, a compromiser with Clay and Calhoun, Denounces Nullification
23 John C. Calhoun Letter to Virgil Maxcy September 11, 1830 I consider the Tariff, but as the occasion, rather than the real cause of the present unhappy state of things. The truth can no longer be disguised, that the peculiar domestick institutions of the Southern States, and the consequent direction which that and her soil and climate have given to her industry, has placed them in regard to taxation and appropriation in opposite relation to the majority of the Union; against the danger of which, if there be no protective power in the reserved rights of the states, they must in the end be forced to rebel. Thus situatied, the denial of the right of the state to interfere constitutionally in the last resort, more alarms the thinking than all other causes.
24 Tariff War: Nullification Crisis Calhoun resigns as VP Dec Becomes Senator from S.C. Clay and Calhoun join to pass Tariff of 1833 (Compromise Tariff) lowers to 25% over 10 years Force Bill President use army/navy to enforce collection Upsets Calhoun and other Southerners Calhoun believes this was done with threat of Nullification

42 Election of 1836 Martin Van Buren Jackson had to support him due to lack of other candidates being his enemies. Didn t necessarily like MVB, but didn t hate him either Whigs Split support regionally to split Van Buren s support so election would have to go to H of Reps. Absorbed National Republicans & Anti-Mason s. Temporarily supported by Calhoun (WHY?) Main Whig is Harrison supports American System MVB supports Jacksonian Policies MVB wins popular & Electoral Vote

45 Quotes of the Jacksonian Era The Bank is trying to kill me.but I will kill it! Marshall has made his decision, now let him enforce it! Nobody knows what he will do. My opinion is that when he comes he will bring a breeze with him. Which way it will blow I cannot tell Our Federal Union, it must be preserved! The Union, next to our liberty, the most dear, may we always remember that it can only be preserved by distributing equally the benefits and burdens of the Union Liberty and Union, now and forever, one and inseparable! I can and do forgive all my enemies. But those vile wretches who have slandered her must look to God for mercy.
