DAY 12 (pgs 301-309)

• Explain Jackson’s appeal and the spoils system.

Jackson became the first president in the United States to be in office by the people, for the people. The people saw him as a political figure that would try his hardest to ensure that the will of the people would be shown through him. Jackson’s appeal was to the common Americans who enjoyed the idea of being able to have a say in political matters. Jackson’s main goal in his presidency was to turn the American government into one with the beliefs of Jeffersonian Republicanism; that farmers and artisans should be able to go along with their business without government interference that favors the rich people in America. The spoils system was an arrangement in which the party that won an election were able to reward loyal members of that party by appointing them to well-paid government jobs.
