Was Andrew Jackson against minorities?
He was a man of his times. People who were not white were considered inferior. This included Native Americans, Asians, African Americans, Hispanic and women. The term "minority " is a modern concept, so yes he was against those who were inferior to white men.
Yes. He was a man of his time and African Americans, Native Americans, women, and other races were considered inferior.
He was a man of his time and saw the African American, Native Americans, women, and other races as inferior. So, yes he was along with the dominant society of the time.
This is a hard question to answer since Jackson was a man of his time. Slavery was still important and the Native Americans were being displaced due to western movement. Jackson was the first frontier president and a man of the people. He opposed the renewal of the charter of the Bank of the US because he saw it as an enemy of the common man and only for the rich. Yet, when GA ignored federal law and claimed millions of acres of Cherokee lands he did nothing. Even when the Supreme Court ruled that GA had no authority to claim the land. The end result was the Trail of Tears in 1838 when 15,000 Cherokee were walked to reservations and thousands died. We have to look at the time through the lenses of his age and not with our modern minds. In doing this he was not against minorities, but reflected the views of his time. To us, yes, he is against minorities, but to him he wasn't.

Andrew Jackson is famous for being the 7th president of the UnitedStates. Jackson was president from 1829 to 1937.
Jackson was born on the western frontier of the Carolinas, an area that was in dispute between North Carolina and South Carolina, and both states have claimed him as a native son. Jackson maintained that he was born in South Carolina, and the weight of evidence supports his assertion. The area offer…ed little opportunity for formal education, and what schooling he received was interrupted by the British invasion of the western Carolinas in 1780-81. In the latter year he was captured by the British. Shortly after being imprisoned, he refused to shine the boots of a British officer and was struck across the face with a sabre. His mother and two brothers died during the closing years of the war, direct or indirect casualties of the invasion of the Carolinas. This sequence of tragic experiences fixed in Jackson's mind a lifelong hostility toward Great Britain. After the end of the American Revolution, he studied law in an office in Salisbury, North Carolina, and was admitted to the bar of that state in 1787. In 1788 he went to the Cumberland region as prosecuting attorney of the western district of North Carolina-the region west of the Appalachians, soon to become the state of Tennessee. (MORE)

Yes you can press charges agsinst a minor, but the real question is whether the minor can be found guilty or not. It all depends on the laws of the state where the crime occurred. Being a minor is looked at as a technicality that creates a presumption that the minor cannot form the criminal intent t…o commit the crime. This presumption can be overcome. In fact most, if not all, states could try a minor as an adult depending on the severity of the crime and the mental capacity of the minor. Some minors are sufficiently aware of the gravity of the offense that the presumption that they cannot form a criminal intent is overcome. On the other hand, some minors can be so young that that they are incapable of forming the appropriate criminal intent to be guilty of the crime charged, no matter how severe the crime. Sometimes, these minors will be charges with juvenile delinquency even if the act committed would be a crime if committed by an adult (MORE)

Andrew Jackson got his name "King Andrew" because he often abused his powers as a president. Most people believed that he was unjust. Made many laws without permission; refused the national bank (which was a good thing, states should be incarge of the way they handle money. not the goverment). Altho…ugh these are only few reasons.

The expansion of women's rights was not an issue in Jackson's day. I do not know that he ever took any position for or against . I am pretty sure that he would not have favored any attempts to remove the rights that women had.
William Crawford, Henry Clay and John Quincy Adams in 1824. John Quincy Adams in 1828, and Henry Clay in 1832.
He claimed to have been born in Van Wyck, SC on Hwy 521 south of Charlotte, NC. There is a marker put up by the DAR in Lancaster Co., South Carolina. He claims to have been born on March 15, 1767 on a Plantation owned by James Crawford.
Andrew Jackson was referred to as King Andrew I during his presidency by his opponents who feared his extension of the powers of his presidency. During his presidency many of his actions were rightfully perceived as tyrannical and his behavior reflected that of a king rather than of a president of a… republic. because he acted like a king to all of his people this name was not made out of respect (MORE)
There were three men running against Jackson in 1832. Henry Clay was the nominee of the National Rebublicans and the main opposition William Wirt won Vermont and John Floyd won SC as regional candidates.
He did not have a middle name. He would have been Andrew Jackson, Jr., if his father had still been alive.
\nIt is illegal for minors to smoke and also illegal to sell tobacco products to minors.
Seeing as Jackson had a TON of kids, it is hard to trace his genealogy. There are several possible connections. One, making them cousins, twice removed, is the most likely. However, the only Thomas Jackson (Stonewall's real name) in Andrew Jackson's direct family was his great grandson, a man of Ire…land. While it is unlikely that there is any relation, we'll probably never know. I suppose that means you can say he was, but bear in mind it would be a very thin connection. (MORE)
Jackson was a candidate for president three times. The first time in 1824 there was no national campaign and the other regional candidates were William Crawford, Henry Clay and John Quincy Adams.

For one thing, he believed, as would anyone who reads the constitution carefullly, that was unconstitutional . The Constitutions lists all the powers of the federal government and says that everything not listed belongs to the states. Jackson had no complaint against internal improvement - he just b…elieved that states should fund the ones they wanted to fund. After he got Congress to pay off the national debt, he sent excess federal funds back to states. He also could see the danger of the "pork barrel" - the idea that Congressmen would try to buy popularity in their states by voting to send federal money, which belongs to all the people, back home to their district-- (fortunately, senators and congressmen have more personal integrity than to ever do anything like that.?!

Andrew Jackson, who assumed the presidency as party politics were becoming more polarized, found himself labeled as nothing short of a dictator by his Democratic Party's opposition, the Whigs. Unlike previous presidents, Jackson used his popularity and power as president to fill his cabinet with loy…al Democratic followers. Jackson did not consult Congress in policymaking and used his power of the veto to assume control of the national government. As a result, many of Jackson's detractors and the political cartoonists of the day labeled Jackson "King Andrew." Whig leaders, such as Henry Clay and Daniel Webster, claimed that Jackson was more of an authoritarian and bully than a balanced president, often citing his relentless use of veto power. In 1832, Jackson vetoed the bill to recharter the controversial Second Bank of the United States, claiming, "The bank is trying to kill me, but I will kill it!" Jackson vetoed bills for political reasons, or simply because he disliked them, thus rejecting the tradition originated by George Washington that vetoes were rarely to be exercised by presidents in a republic. During his two terms in office, Washington used the veto power just twice; Jackson used it twelve times, more than all of his predecessors combined. (MORE)
Because some people thought that he was more like a king than a president. (I'm not that sure though, so I would do a little more research before you fully trust this)
his VP didn't like them, because he felt it was tough on the southern states. South Carolina actually threatened to withdraw from the Union if the TAriff of 1832 were not removed. That's how nullification was created.
In the two years Andrew Jackson got elected, John Q. Adams in 1828 and Henery Clay in 1832 ran against him.
King Jackson is a political slur used against Jackson in (I believe) the 1828 presidential election (although it could be 1832, when he ran for a second term) Jackson used his power to veto a lot during his term of office, and even as a senator he opposed bills. To make him sound like a tyrant, (suc…h as the King of England) they called him King Jackson. (MORE)
Andrew Jackson was against the National Bank because he felt itgave to much power to one company. He wanted states to beresponsible for their own banking.
Andrew Jackson was the 7th president of the United States. He was self-educated, lost the election of 1824 to John Quincy Adams, and won the election of 1828. He was re-elected in 1832 for a second term. As a child, he was given a scar from a British soldier's scythe, because Jackson refused to po…lish the soldier's boots. As a result, the soldier wanted to strike him dead, but since Jackson shielded himself with his hand, he has a bone-deep scar on his hand, and a scar below his cheek. (MORE)
I know that he served in the Massachusetts Senate and then the U.S. Senate, before serving as James Monroe's Secretary of State. Hope this helps !!
They met at her mother's farm near Nashville, TN where he rented a cabin and took his meals.
Andrew Jackson's parents were Andrew and Elizaben. His older brothers names were Robert and Hugh.
Andrew Jackson was up for election as President of the United States in 1824, however, he lost out in the vote to John Quincy Adams, who, on March 4 of the following year, became the sixth President of the United States. Jackson had to wait until 1829 before he became President.
Of course, he had a rough-tumble life. He loved to fight and wrestle with his frends. He proteced the ones he loved. He beat someone up becasue he tried to kill him while walking through a building and he was just a senitive child.
No , this is a common misconception due to the way Chief Justice John Marshall wrote the opinion of the Court for Worcester v. Georgia , (1832), mixing the legal decision with his personal beliefs. President Jackson ignored John Marshall's personal opinion about the federal government owing pr…otection to the Cherokee, but that wasn't part of the official ruling in Worcester because the United States was not a party to the case. Courts only have authority to issue legally binding decisions against people or entities named as a party to the suit being tried. Jackson may have had a moral and ethical obligation to defend the Cherokee Nation against Georgia's aggression, but no legal duty had been established. The only legal ruling in the case was against the state of Georgia, which released the missionaries held in prison for living on Cherokee land without holding a state license, but ignored the part of the decision that stated Georgia had no right to regulate the Cherokee or their land. President Jackson declined to intervene, but was not legally required to do so, anyway. Jackson continued to support Georgia in its mission to drive the Native Americans from their land, and successfully hobbled Marshall by nominating like-minded Associate Justices to vacancies on the then seven-member court. By politicizing the Court, Jackson subverted its power as one of the checks and balances on the Executive and Legislative branches. The sad conclusion to this story was the 1836 ratification of a removal treaty between the United States government and the Cherokee Nation, the Treaty of New Echota. This resulted in the US Army forcibly relocating the Native Americans from their ancestral land under the Van Buren administration in 1838, a travesty later known as The Trail of Tears.

It is possible, but not likely. A minor is not of the legal age of consent, so cannot legally enter into a contract that is the primary means of acquiring debt. There are probably some unusual situations that can occur that could result in a judgment against a minor, such as damage or personal injur…y claims; however, in most of those cases the parent or the guardian of the minor would be the one sued.
