5

6 The Whig strategy failed Martin Van Buren elected president First native born President First President not of English ancestry Dutch Spoke Dutch as first language until his school days. Also a widower Never remarried

7

8 Shortly after Van Buren became president the economy crashed. This downturn was called the Panic of 1837 Serious economic depression Unemployment was high Banks failed Businesses closed Eviction rates were high

9 Pet Banks Made many loans and printed their own money. People used loans and inflated paper money to purchase land from the government. Government was flooded with inflated paper money in exchange for land. President Jackson required that land be paid in gold and silver (specie) Specie Circular People took paper money back to banks to exchange for specie. Banks failed when they had no specie

10 President Van Buren was blamed for the Depression. Actually, the Specie Circular was the cause and that was the act of President Jackson But van Buren did nothing to help solve the economic crisis. Government, at that time, did nothing to interfere with or control the economy.

11 Trail of Tears Armisted Controversy Slave ship high jacking and trial of the African mutineers Aroostoock War Bloodless conflict in Maine over border with Canada Mormon War in Missouri

17 Controversy over his status as President His assumption of the Office of President became a precedent. Did not become Constitutional until the 25 th Amendment Kept Harrison s entire cabinet. Tyler s political views were different from other Whigs.

18 Tyler vetoed almost every Whig piece of legislation that came out of Congress. Even though he was a Whig. Caused great controversy Was even an impeachment attempt. Led by John Quincy Adams Was then a member of the House of Representatives Only President who later was elected to the House. J.Q. Adams

19 Entire cabinet (except for Secretary of State Daniel Webster) resigned on the same day Whig party kicked him out of the party while he was still President. Daniel Webster
