Day 49: Rise of a Mass DemocracyBaltimore Polytechnic InstituteNovember 6, 2013A/A.P. U.S. HistoryMr. GreenA Rise in Mass DemocracyObjective: Describe and explain the growth of Mass Democracy in the 1820s. Indicate how the alleged corrupt bargain of 1824 and Adams’ unpopular presidency set the stage for Jackson’s election in 1828.AP Focus Andrew Jackson handily wins the popular vote in the 1824 election but fails to win the necessary electoral votes. The U.S. House of Representatives selects his opponent, John Quincy Adams. But in 1828, Jackson easily defeats Adams, ushering in what many see as a period of democratic growth. Claiming he is attacking entrenched political forces, Jackson rewards his political supporters with patronage positions in government. Chapter FocusChapter Theme The election to the presidency of the frontier aristocrat and common person’s hero, Andrew Jackson, signaled the end of the older elitist political leadership represented by John Quincy Adams. A new spirit of mass democracy and popular involvement swept through American society, bringing new energy, as well as conflict and corruption to public life.AnnouncementsHand in HOMEWORK DUE TUESDAY!!!!!!!!!! 1810s decade chart, 1824 mapSubmit Presidential Election Charts 1804-1816Submit Presidential Election Charts 1828, 1832, 1836, 1840 next weekDecades Chart for the 1820’s due MONDAYJohn Q.Highly successful secretary of stateEntered presidency under the auspices of corruption-Discuss 1824 electionDid not reward followersSupported federal funding of roads and canalsChange in public sentiment around nationalism states’ rightsGeorgia staved off Washington intervention on behalf of the CherokeesAndrew Jackson campaigned throughout the Adams’ PresidencyWhole Hog for JacksonPresented as a rough-hewn frontiersman/champion of the common manActually a wealthy planter and slave ownerMudslinging campaign Jackson’s wife a bigamist/adulteress She dies before becoming 1st lady Jackson’s mom a prostitute Adams had gambling tables in the White house Served as a pimp for the Russian Tsar Jackson won 178-83Political center shifted from the eastern seaboard to the emerging states-WHY?Tariff of AbominationsTariff of 1824 increased duties significantly, and Adams signed an increase in 1828Southerners hated the 1828 tariffSold cotton and other goods in a world market without tariffs Forced to buy goods protected by tariffs.
