Andrew Jackson


What was Jackson’s position on the National Bank?

He opposed the National Bank of the United States in part because it favored the rich and the northeastern states over those in the south and west. He also believed that it created too much power in a single institution. He vetoed the re-chartering of the bank in 1832 and withdrew U.S. funds from it 1833, effectively destroying the bank.
