Coinage Act  - ∙ An 1834 bill Jackson signs as part of his push to make gold and silver  the dominant specie in America. It made a small reduction in the value of silver relative  to gold to encourage citizens to turn in their gold to the Mint. However, the bill actually  resulted in the disappearance of much of the remaining silver in general circulation.  The Creeks  - ∙ A large Native American tribe primarily in Georgia and Alabama.  Jackson defeated the tribe during his first military camp in 1814 at the Battle of  Horseshoe Bend and imposed on them the Treaty of Fort Jackson.  The Corrupt Bargain  - ∙ In the spring of 1825, Jackson accused Speaker of the House  Henry Clay of making a "corrupt bargain" with John Quincy Adams, where Clay would  be appointed secretary of state under Adams if Clay would throw his support behind  Adams in the disputed election of 1824.
