After reviewing Andrew Jackson’s positive and negative actions, it has come to a conclusion that he was in the position of a hero. In the 1800’s President Andrew Jackson showed he was a hero to the reduce in Federal debts, winning the Battle of New Orleans, and hearing the voices of the people and giving them the chance to vote for their president. Despite all his positive work, he also made many negative decisions, but none mayor and serious.
Andrew Jackson made an amazing impact in our world, and without hesitation we can all say that if it wasn’t for his positive work, we would not be in the position we are in today. My first reason on why I believe President Andrew Jackson was a hero is for the fact that he vowed to pay the national debt to prevent the liberty of his country from being destroyed, and kept his word. The reducement of the national debt was lowered in 1835. Andrew Jackson had been able to decrease the national debt to only $33,733. 05, the lowest it has been since the first working year of 1791. This was a major accomplishment, and a very difficult task.
Andrew Jackson was the only president in United States history to ever succeed in paying off the federal debt. This is the second reason why I believe Andrew Jackson was hero. Andrew Jackson defeated the British Army from seizing New Orleans and part of the Louisiana territory, acquired by the United States. Winning this battle made Andrew Jackson a hero because many people depended on him to keep their land safe and away from any destruction. If Andrew Jackson had not won this battle many people would have gotten ruled over by British troops. Therefore, I believe President Andrew Jackson was a president.
This is the final reason why I believe Andrew Jackson was a hero. I thought he was a hero because he believed that his people should have the right to vote for their own president. This made Andrew Jackson a common man because he heard his nation’s voice. His nation did not like the fact that congress was choosing presidents, without a word from them. Andrew Jackson did many things to get him recognized as a good president towards his people. Many people believed that President Andrew Jackson was a bad person. He made bad choices, yet what these people didn’t understand was the concept of him making good choices out of these negative actions.
For example, many people thought Andrew Jackson was a bad person because of the Trail of Tears, yet they know so little about it. If those people would do research they would know that there were about fifty stations, or forts, in Tennessee during the Trail of tears. Although the Trail of Tears led my president Andrew Jackson only destroyed two of the Indian tribes. After reviewing the pros and cons of Andrew Jackson’s presidency many people still believe that he was a bad president and did nothing good for the nation.
I, in my point of view, believe that he was a good president, and made a lot of the year he was in The White House. President Andrew Jackson made many people happy, and many people upset. Although, when you think about it, he is the reason why our world is the way it is now. Women have the right to vote. The people choose the president depending on which one satisfies them the most. He fought way too hard for us to have the privileges we have now. He did things other presidents could never commit themselves to doing. “You must pay the price if you wish to secure the blessing. ” –Andrew Jackson.
