The Jackson Era In A Nutshell Andrew Jackson was one of the most powerful and influential presidents of the nineteenth century. America's seventh president, serving between 1829 and 1837, Jackson implemented policies that profoundly affected the territorial, political, and economic development of the United States. He organized the relocation of more than 90,000 Indians from the eastern United States to territories west of the Mississippi River. He strengthened the Union by rejecting South Carolina's claim that it possessed the authority to nullify federal laws. And he destroyed the Bank of the United States , leaving the nation without a central bank capable of monitoring the nation's money supply. Jackson's impact on American political culture was equally profound. He was elected by a coalition of southern and middle-state voters that crystallized into the Democratic Party . And he democratized American politics by running a new type of political campaign that reached out directly to the American voters.

    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.

    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.
