A candidate who understands the people and fights for them is the wish of anyone unrepresented in government. That’s probably what the majority of the population felt when Andrew Jackson ran for president. Here was a self-made man who knew the needs of the people and fought for them. While the Jacksonian Era is viewed as the “era of the common man”, the fact remains that while Jackson knew what the people wanted, he wasn’t entirely a man “by the people, for the people”.
Clarence Seward Darrow (April 18, 1857 – March 13, 1938) was an American lawyer and leading member of the American Civil Liberties Union, best known for defending teenage killers Leopold and Loeb in their trial for murdering 14-year-old Robert "Bobby" Franks in 1924.

Although this may have been true his story was not ever proven, there were no witnesses. The story which the other Indian man gives is not believable telling the jury that a friend of five years threatened to kill him if he told anyone. As an accused person himself, there would be no reason to wait till Tom’s trial. Why did he reenter the room where Mr. Robinson had been slain?

The Jacksonians first political action in Missouri was to limit federal judges’ terms in office and to make it harder for them to overturn state and congressional legislation. The Jacksonians second plan of attack was to remove John Adam’s supporter Judge David Todd from judiciary office. In this paper I will discuss the events that led to the impeachment trials of Judge David Todd as well as the outcome. I will also show how the political parties of the past used personal vendettas as political gain against their adversaries. President James Monroe picked David Todd in 1817 to head as territorial judge of Missouri.

As a result of Pontiac’s rebellion, England had established the Proclamation of 1763. Before the proclamation, colonists wanted to expand past the Appalachian Mountains and into Indian Territory. In Cantassatego speech to the Pennsylvania representatives, he expresses his concern of colonists expanding into their land and disrupting Indian life. He says “Your People daily settle on these Lands, and spoil our hunting” (DOC B). After Pontiac’s Rebellion, Reverend Thomas Barnard had created his sermon in 1763 to be about his feelings towards England gaining full control over the colonies.
He was the first of the Presidents to be impeached; his impeachment trial began in 1868. Johnson was a Democrat and the House was controlled by Republicans, thus causing tensions between the two. With the Civil War being a fresh wound, resistance and rebellion lingered around already tense relations. Unlike today when a President gets elected he chooses whomever he decides to become a part of his cabinet. Some examples would be the Secretary of State and Secretary of Defense.
