Andrew Jackson Vs. The National Bank

Citizen Views


The National Bank, or sometimes referred to as the Central Bank, was a system to hold money from citizens, in one financial placing.

The National Bank angered Andrew Jackson because every citizen's money was going into one financial placing, which upset Jackson. Andrew Jackson did not like to share power amongst anyone, which is what the National Bank was doing.
