Ylice Benlizar 4.7 APUSH 1. The Bank War--Jackson as Autocrat or Democrat? (fill in the blanks) Jackson detested monopolies, as he saw them as anti-democratic (remember the westerners liked the “wildcat” banks). He called the Bank of the U.S. (which would be up for a renewal of its 20 year charter in 1836) a “moneyed monster .” Jackson did not like that the Bank of the U.S. was a private institution and that it had foreclosed on many Western farmers. The issue came up in 1832 because Daniel Webster and Henry Clay presented Congress with a bill to renew the charter , Jackson’s main rival for the presidency, wanted to make it an issue in the election of 1832. When Congress passed the bank recharter, Jackson vetoed it. The president of the Bank of the U.S. was Nicholas Biddle . Follow this link and describe at least two of the cartoons about Jackson and the bank: a. Cartoon 1: Depicts Andrew Jackson attempting to slay a multiple headed serpent who is striking back at him with comments, which are most likely related to the Bank of United States. Those people represented as heads on the serpent are most likely just politicians who were striking back against the attempts of Jackson to end the bill. b. Cartoon 2 : The second cartoon depicts politicians Clay, Biddle, & Webster fighting against this box which seems to be the problems that come from the bank they renewed. It’s comedical and is appealing to Jackson’s followers versus the 1st.
