Jackson and Indiana removal: Is President Jackson's legacy forever tarnished for his failure to adhere to the U.S. Supreme Court's ruling on Native Americans?
  • Yes, Jackson's treatment of Native Americans over shadowed his war hero status.

    Yes, President Jackson's historical reputation was permanently damaged by his prejudiced mistakes. He gained the majority of his glory from his military achievements from the War 1812 (which was used as a tool to win in the presidential election). His decision to sign The Indian Removal Act during his term nullified his heroic deeds from the minds of many citizens. Because of this choice, Jackson's popularity declined rapidly as America grew more racially diverse.

  • President Jackson's legacy will be forever stained by his treatment of Native Americans.

    President Jackson's legacy will be forever stained by his treatment of Native Americans. Every President does something that they will be judged negatively for either immediately or in the eyes of history. But his treatment of Native Americans resonates today and hence will not be forgotten by the average man, let alone to history.

  • Yes: Following rulings is an important part of presidency

    If a president does not follow predetermined rules or social guidelines, they are in risk of seeming untrustworthy to the people. It becomes as if the president in subjection can not be consistent and may be unpredictable which would not come off as a good quality in a president and may change peoples opinion of him.

  • It should have been tarnished from the beginning.

    It pains me to even think about the sheer torture the Native Americans had to endure. Anyone with a hand in that does not deserve a legacy in this age. Our generation needs to make a stand and say that what happened in the past was wrong. Just because something happened does not make it right.
