Study Guide The Jackson Age Social Studies, Grade 7

THE JACKSON AGE (1829-1837) What do you know about the Jackson Age? Andrew Jackson was an influential leader in the 19th century, known for many reforms to the American government and society during his presidency. President Jackson is credited for the founding of the Democratic Party and also for his strong stance on nationalism. Jackson is also known for intensifying sectionalism. The Protective Tariff and the Nullification Act are two examples of Jackson’s economic policies, policies from which he did not often waver. Another policy Jackson became famous for is the “spoils system,” which allowed for awarding his supporters positions in government. Although many opposed this, it continued to exist beyond his term in office. Jackson was also an opponent of the National Bank and the use of paper money. His Specie Circular created an economic depression that took years to recover from. Another aspect of the Jackson Age was the removal of Native Americans from their land. The Indian Removal Act of 1830 promoted the removal, and Jackson is known for his part in the Trail of Tears, a devastating removal of the Cherokee Indians. © Copyright NewPath Learning.
