Baltimore Polytechnic Institute November 6, 2013 A/A.P. U.S. History Mr. Green
Objective: Describe and explain the growth of Mass Democracy in the 1820s. Indicate how the alleged corrupt bargain of 1824 and Adams’ unpopular presidency set the stage for Jackson’s election in AP Focus Andrew Jackson handily wins the popular vote in the 1824 election but fails to win the necessary electoral votes. The U.S. House of Representatives selects his opponent, John Quincy Adams. But in 1828, Jackson easily defeats Adams, ushering in what many see as a period of democratic growth. Claiming he is attacking entrenched political forces, Jackson rewards his political supporters with patronage positions in government.
CHAPTER THEME The election to the presidency of the frontier aristocrat and common person’s hero, Andrew Jackson, signaled the end of the older elitist political leadership represented by John Quincy Adams. A new spirit of mass democracy and popular involvement swept through American society, bringing new energy, as well as conflict and corruption to public life.
