Do think favorably or unfavorably of Andrew Jackson?

As unfavorable as it can possibly get.

Quite favourable. Probably part of the percentage of kids my age that aren't easily influenced by my teachers. I love to challenge my teachers especially when I know they are biased towards something. I rather do my own research rather than read a passage that's one sided. I don't agree with the TOT but it's something inevitable. If it wasn't Jackson somebody else who have kicked them out. People think it's so easy to alter history but it really isn't that simple

Justice Marshall ruled that the Indians had the right to stay on the land but Jackson ignored his ruling. I can’t see many other presidents doing that but you never know.

I think his emphasis on the common man was admirable but he abused government power, took political attacks WAY too personally, set the foundation for the Democrats to be the party of racial oppression, and I personally was not a fan of his economic policies.

He was a tyrant.

Very unfavorably: abused his power, ignored rulings of the SC, quite unruly, and caused thousands of Native Americans to die on the Trail of Tears.
