Presidential Vision

The people are the government, administering it by their agents; they are the government, the sovereign power.-Andrew Jackson

The large, untamed expanse that was the Western frontier was something that Andrew Jackson longed to settle and officially make a part of the Union. The idea of Manifest Destiny and Westward Expansion was the fire behind everything Jackson stood for. When South Carolina threatened to secede from the Union, Jackson used Federal troops to force the South Carolinians to follow federal law. The Trail of Tears, the forceful removal of the Native Americans from their land to make room for the westward bound Americans, was in the Jacksonian Era. Jackson also stood firmly against a national bank; for he was worried it held too much power and had the ability to extend its power into Government. Jackson's viewpoints of many topics, though controversial, kept the Union moving to its western boundaries and helped America become what it is today.
