In those days,the national bank made loans to individuals and could decide which people would get loans. Most, of not all, federal money was deposited in it, so they had a lot of money to lend. Consequently, the manager of the bank had a lot of power by virtue of his ability to grant loans, es…tablish their interest rates and decide if they would be renewed. Therefore, although not an elected official he could substantially influence Congress and Jackson believed that his failure to be chosen as President in 1824, when the choice went to the House, was influenced against him by the bank.

The Greek statesman Pericles then expanded the democracy. He was anAthenian statesman who had an impact on politics that remainstoday.
In the decades surrounding the presidency of Andrew Jackson democracy began to expand. States rewrote constitutions and extended the franchise to all free white males. European visitors such as Alexis de Tocqueville noticed the spirit of equality that pervaded the United States, unlike anything know…n in the Old World. (Not all Europeans, nor Americans, for that matter, were sure that was a good idea-terms like "mobocracy" and "anarchy" were thrown around from time to time.) By the late 1830s, the United States had become a full democracy for adult white males, but inequalities still existed: poor people were still poor, and while wealth may not have bought votes directly, it certainly was a prerequisite for any kind of real power. What was different about America was not that the gap between rich and poor had narrowed-indeed, the opposite was probably true--but that there were few systemic barriers (except for slavery) that prevented people from gaining wealth and power. However limited, the idea of America as a land of unprecedented opportunity was not inaccurate in the context of the times. Importantly, equality of opportunity did not necessarily mean equality of result, a concept with which Americans continue to wrestle in making political choices. ( Full Answer )

An officer stru…ck Andrew in the face with his sword when Andrew refused to clean the officer's boots, and Andrew bore this scar on his face the rest of his life. The brothers nearly starved to death while in captivity. Then smallpox broke out among the prisoners. Andrew's mother went to the British and pleaded for the release of her two boys.

The movement created by Jackson on his election was an authentic democratic movement dedicated to powerful, radical, egalitarian ideals for white men. Its origins go back to the 1700's, the anti federalists of the 1780's and the 1790's, and from the Jeffersonian Republicans. Another cause was also o…ut of social and economic changes of the early 19th century. There was also a tendency to remain with the 18th century elitist assumptions of the natural aristocracy of propertied men as well as the starting of the 19th century capitalism of corporation's, banks, and other moneyed investments to become the new rich. This lead to the government policy of favoring centralized top down forms of economic development that aided men of means but deepened the inequality of others without the money. A redirection of economic policy resulted and reformers fought to abolish property requirements for voting and office holding. His basic policy was to rid the government of class bias and dismantle the top down credit driven engines of the market revolution. His war on the Second Bank of the United States set the tone. This was an effort to remove the few wealthy unelected private bankers from the nation's economy. To aide the farmer the government began a program of Indian removal from lands that could be sold and gave settler's preemption rights. The ideology was aimed at the voters who felt harmed or cut off from the new markets and proclaimed a political culture predicated on white male equality and had a social vision that any white man would have a chance to secure his economic independence, live free as he saw fit, and live under a system of government cleansed of privilege.

Andrew Jackson changed the definition of democracy by he wanted to get rid of the electoral college so that the popular vote would decide the president and please the people I think that Jackson was trying to please the middle class and poor \npeople most of all. I think this because he got rid o…f the banks \nbecause he decided that they only make rich people richer and poor \npeople poorer. This was a bad idea and eventually led to economic \ncrisis. Under Jackson there was an increase in power for the common \nman, but there was still some unfairness. Native Americans, blacks, and\nwomen still didn't have any power. I think that the Jackson era was a \nturning point in American democracy. ( Full Answer )
