Theme 7 The Age of Jackson The election of Andrew Jackson in 1828 came to symbolize the emergence of a new democratic spirit: an “age of the common man.” Although the Democrats favored limited national gov’t, Jackson forcefully responded to South Carolina’s defiance over the collection of tariffs. The exercise of assertive executive power is best illustrated by Jackson’s veto of rechartering of the national bank and his “war” against the “monopoly.” The removal of Indian tribes from the Southeast to lands west of the Mississippi was vigorously pursued. A new Whig Party emerged in opposition to “King Andrew I.”
