Timeline

A democracy is a free and equal right of every person to participate in a system of government, often practiced by electing representatives of the people by the majority. During Andrew Jackson's presidency he increased the democracy of the U.S. in multiple ways. One example of this is overwriting the requirement of owning land inorder to vote. Another example of how Jackson increased democracy was refusing to sign the recharter of the National Bank because he then placed the money in smaller state banks which gave the common people more power. Looking at the big picture President Andrew Jackson increased the democracy of this nation by relating to middle and lower class citizens.

The planter, the farmer, the mechanic, and the laborer... form the great body of the people of the United States, they are the bone and sinew of the country men who love liberty and desire nothing but equal rights and equal laws.-Andrew Jackson
