I am arguing that Andrew Jackson does not deserve to be on the $20 bill

I think that Andrew Jackson disserves to be on the $20 bill even though he messed up a few times.

"Messed up A few times"

Exactly, proving my point, messing up a few times during presidency is horrible. First of all, at the Battle of New Orleans, Andrew Jackson killed innocent surrendered British People. People are always blaming the panic of 1837 on Martin Van Buren, which is clearly untrue. The economical depression started during the Jackson Era. He was not a president for the "Common Man" He made people homeless and destroyed their lives.

The Indian Removal Act killed 4, 000 innocent Cherokees that had to travel to Oklahoma in the Freezing Winter. This, known as the Train of Tears, was a horrific event that proves Jackson's cruelty. The only thing that Andrew Jackson did was win the Battle of New Orleans, and a treaty had already been signed to end the war before the battle. So the only thing Jackson did was win a pointless battle. The most important things he did was send the US economy into depression, kill innocent and terrified Cherokees and Seminoles, and murdered surrendered soldiers.

He was a cruel man and does not deserve to be on the twenty dollar bill, a resemblance of our country.
