All about the presidency of Andrew Jackson. So how did a president with astoundingly bad fiscal policies end up on the $20 bill? That's a question we can't answer, but we can tell you how Jackson got to be president, and how he changed the country when he got the job. It also provides additional historical context from Westward Expansion, a growth in banking, an increase in political parties, Missouri and Maine becoming states, the role of slavery, and the appropriation of native tribal lands and massacre of tribes.
