1. Evaluate the social and economic changes that occurred in the United States during the  first half of the nineteenth century and the various responses to the tensions that the  changes caused. a. The first change was  Westward Expansion . This had always been going on but  now that America had more territory people could move further west. This made  Americans worry because they were scared those westerners were too far away  from the capitol geographically. They were scared they were being too  independent and they might try to separate from the US. Also, it took so long to  travel or to get news back and forth. The second change was  Democratization Voting rights changed so now any white male could vote and you didn’t have to  own property anymore. This caused doubt because maybe Americas had to  much liberty and the balance between liberty and power was thrown off, some  thought. The third change was  Immigration . Even though this had always been  happening there was a great increase. These poor usually uneducated  immigrants were coming in and working in textile mills. This made an unmoral,  unprotected working class. This scare Americans because of the factors of  republicanism is virtue, and these people did not have morals. The forth change  was  Transportation revolution . This made trade easier by developing roads,  canals, steamboats, and eventually trains. Trains made transportation, news  travel and shipping considerably faster. The fifth change was  Industrialization  or  the growth of manufacturing. This scared Americans because in order to have a  republican society you had to have independent voters. Americans didn’t want a  bunch of factory workers (working for something bigger) voting they wanted  strong independent voters. 2. Describe the major issues during Andrew Jackson’s presidency and explain how they  helped define the basic difference between the two new parties of the time the Wigs and  the Democrats. a. The first major policy issue was  Indian Removal . Jackson felt that whites should  be allowed in Indian territory, states were encouraging white settlement and  encouraged whites to settle on Cherokee’s land. The Cherokee’s take Georgia to  the Supreme Court and John Marshall rules in favor of the Cherokee’s. Jackson

accepted Marshall’s decision and tells Marshall that he has to enforce it. Jackson  gives support for the Indian Removal Act and the Indians were pushed out by the  military. The second issue was  Government Land Sales . The government was  getting money to run itself from tariffs and western land sales. Jackson did not

    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.
