Election of 1824

The election between JQ Adams, Jackson, Clay and Crawford (all Democratic-Republicans)(it also included John C Calhoun but Calaba left him out). It ended with Adams winning the battle with Jackson through what is known as the "corrupt bargain" with Clay.

Bank War

The US Bank was under a 20 year charter, and was favored mainly by the northern bankers and merchants but not by farmers and westerners. Clay and Webster pushed for an early recharter but Jackson vetoed it due to his hatred for the two men. He killed the bank and ordered his Secretary of Treasury to remove all of the specie and put it in his "pet banks".

Nullification Crisis of 1832

Increased tariffs in the South led to a decrease in trade with Britain. The South relied on the North for goods and hated it. South Carolina declared that they would no longer pay the tariffs, and threatened to secede when Jackson threatened the use of Federal troops. Henry Clay made a compromise and kept South Carolina in the union.

Indian Removal Act

Congress ordered all Indians to move westward into "Indian Territory" in a movement that became known as the Trail of Tears.
