Examining the Evidence Activities

Examining Related Evidence: Satiric Bank Note, 1837
This internet activity is based on the Examining the Evidence feature found on page 273 of The American Pageant, Thirteenth Edition. Or you can view the feature here.

It is as difficult for students of history to understand allusions in other kinds of political evidence (such as campaign songs) as it is to figure out political cartoons. To explore this problem further, go to the American Memory Project website and click on Search. Then do a search for the song, "Huzza! for General Jackson."

Use the song lyrics to answer the following questions:
  1. Identify three reasons the songwriter gives for voting for Andrew Jackson.
  2. Identify at least one reason the songwriter gives for why people oppose Jackson.
  3. Approximately when was this song written? (Explain your answer carefully).
