The Impending Crisis Tyler Takes over presidency after Harrison dies. He is not a true Whig, but was only VP to attract votes from non Whigs. He vetoes a huge bill supported by the Whigs which causes Whigs to call him ‘his accidency’. Tyler allies himself with some southern Democrats 1. The Texas Issue a. Democrats want to annex Texas to expand cotton industry b. Whigs do not like adding Texas because it will make a stronger hold for slave states in Congress. c. During this time (late 30’s, early 40’s) there is not much passed in Congress (with exception of Bankruptcy Bill) 2. James K. Polk a. 1844 Election- Democrats want to get back into control, and in order to do this, they must resurrect the alliance between north and South during the jacksonian Era. The man behind this uniting was Van Buren, and he still thinks he can win again. He still has a great deal of power in this party because of his political machine in New York, most populous state in the Union. But the Southern Democrats are getting tired and wary about Van Buren. Southern are convinced that V.B. is a secret abolitionist.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
