Transcript

  • 1. Section 2 Notes
  • 2. The Spoils System  Shortly after his inauguration, JACKSON fired many government employees. He then replaced them with his OWN LOYAL SUPPORTERS.  Jackson defended this practice by claiming, “TO THE VICTOR BELONGS THE SPOILS OF THE ENEMY.” The spoils to which JACKSON referred were government jobs for his supporters. As a result, this practice became known as the SPOILS SYSTEM.  Like previous Presidents, JACKSON assembled an official cabinet. But he also relied on a group of his own personal advisers, nicknamed the KITCHEN CABINET.

  • 4. War with the Bank  Since its creation in 1816, the BANK OF THE U.S. had stirred controversy throughout the nation. The BANK controlled all the nation’s credit. It also decided how much money state banks received. Many people, including ANDREW JACKSON, argued that the BANK had grown too powerful.  In 1832, JACKSON vetoed a bill to renew the BANK’S charter. He also ordered that federal funds be taken out of the BANK OF THE UNITED STATES and put into certain state banks, known as PET BANKS.  The loss of federal funds crippled the BANK. In 1836, when its charter ran out, the BANK went out of business.
