Andrew Jackson represented a shift in American politics with the American Revolution and the early political parties officially in the rearview mirror. The election of 1828 marked a turning point as voting rights were extended beyond property owners and Andrew Jackson was the non-Northerner to ascend to the Presidency. During Jackson’s administration, the US continued to expand west while Indigenous populations were forcibly removed from their lands. Meanwhile, sectional tensions increased between the north and south.
