Essay 2 –
The essay question is:
Andrew Jackson carried the power of the presidency to new heights. Use evidence from the text to explain how he did so.
DEVELOPING YOUR ANSWER: At almost every turn, Jackson behaved as a forceful activist and engaged in direct confrontation with his opponents. The combination of these two qualities made the presidency unusually powerful in his hands. To document Jackson’s activist approach and his confrontational style, the following should be included in your discussion:
1. Indian policy: Jackson’s Indian removal policy and actions and his blunt refusal to implement the Supreme Court’s decision in Worcester v.Georgia
The nullification controversy: Jackson’s public confrontation with John C. Calhoun and his dramatic preparations to use military force against South Carolina
