According to Wallace, this view stems from the disregard of many inconvenient truths during his administration. The largest example the author uses to illustrate the repugnant actions of President Jackson is Native American removal. Even before he became president, he worked to acquire Native American land for the United States as treaty commissioner. In his time with that position, he gained large areas of land that would grow the United States. This would seem like an honorable achievement for the country, but Jackson and his fellow commissioners did not always use fair tactics when negotiating with Native American tribes that refused to give up their homes.
President Andrew Jackson was democratic in many ways; he was a supporter of the common man and he believed that the people should have control over offices, whether elected or appointed (Document D). However, Jackson was often pictured as a king, rather than a president (Document E), he trusted many people whom he shouldn’t have trusted (Document I), and he forced indians to move further west and out of the lands they called their home (Document J). Therefore, while Jackson was for the most part a democratic person for Americans, who favored the common man; he also resembled a ruler by doing things such as removing indians from their lands just because of their race. Jackson was the seventh president of the United States, his presidencies took place in 1828 through 1832 and 1832 through 1836. He is often thought of as one of the most popular presidents.
The Best and Worst of Americas Presidents Throughout U.S history there have been many good presidents and also many bad presidents. I believe that presidents should be graded on how they handle the economy, foreign policy, and equal rights. From our first president to our current president those I believe are the three most important grading points. A good economy is very important because it gives people a better living by giving them job opportunities and a way for people to make money. Foreign policy is important because it has a lot to do with the trade, technology, and communications of the United States.
He was an ambitious young man who was sure to have a successful future. In 1905, Franklin married his fifth cousin once removed, Anna Eleanor Roosevelt. She was a very quiet, soft-spoken woman and they had six children together. Franklin Delano Roosevelt had a very successful political career. He was the first Democratic since 1884 elected into the New York State Senate in 1910 and was reelected in 1912.
Alexander II came to the throne in 1855 after the death of his father, Tsar Nicholas I. Alexander II is widely known by many as the “liberator”, and is recognised chiefly for the emancipation of the serfs. Alexander III is commonly known as a reactionary leader, angered by the assassination of his father (Alexander II) he is seen to lead in a much more forceful manner. Both Tsars were incontrovertibly autocrats, making decisions for the whole country on their own. However the degree of which the autocracy is enforced varies. Alexander II’s reforms involved the 1864 Zemstva Act, which created local councils.
However, to find the origins for the American Prohibition we must look back to rural America in the Nineteenth Century. Wilson was also pressured into passing the Prohibition Act by the powerful temperance movement during the Great War, claiming that alcohol was unpatriotic as it was made by American's from German descent. Even though he tried to veto the amendment, he was overturned by Congress and reluctantly passed the legislation. The law itself was amazingly ambitious as alcohol was the seventh largest industry in a nation which was ruled by "big business" and was an established and respected as part of the businesses which provided the wealth of America. Although the technical reason as to why the Prohibition Law was passed was because 66% of the Constitution voted for it, one of the main reasons why Prohibition happened was because of its mass support.

This defeat was not a normal defeat as it is known as the “stolen election”. It is referred as this because Jackson won a huge amount of votes but unfortunately he did not have the electoral votes he needed to gain presidency. This meant that now the House of Representatives would be deciding the faith of the election. The outcome of this election was defeat for Jackson however as previously mentioned Jackson was victorious in the 1828 elections winning the majority of the votes and beating Adams. Jackson was quite unlike any other president of the United States.
Congo is rich in mineral deposits and its land is fertile, yet Congolese suffer from unemployment, lack of education and violent authoritarian rulers. Mr. Tshisekedi is well educated, and has served as Congo’s Justice Minister, Interior Minister and Prime Minister since the 1960s. He has also been jailed, exiled and tortured several times over his anti-corruption stance. Early results showed Mr. Tshisekedi to be leading in the ballot count. The western embassies viewed Mr Tshisekedi with suspicion because of his radical views and anti-western stand.
Their first objective of the group was to stop the blacks from voting. The group gained much popularity and had significant authority to the government. Du Bois also stated that the group used to affect the decisions of the government because it had the majority of the members. As it was mention in “A Brief History of the Ku Klux Klan” article, “By the early 1920s the Klan had more than 2 million members and exercised great political power in the south, in the boarder states, and in the Midwest.” Their activities and resolutions in the government were very inhuman because it discriminated against some of the people. Du Bois state that the KKK dominated the southern region for very many years, where the Africans were discriminated, and their rights violated.
