Left-wing mobs have been tearing down statues of historical figures across America, including Andrew Jackson's. What do you know about him? This short video gives an essential overview.

The trail of tears is a debatable topic which personally after having seen the arguments for both sides I have come to the conclusion that it was the best choice among the worst.

Reasons why Andrew Jackson wasn’t a good president or virtuous man: 1. He was a war criminal. Some of the things he did during the acquisition of Spanish Florida were in fact war crimes. 2. The way he got elected was by promising bureaucratic offices to those who would bring him good PR and decry his opponent. He spurred the bureaucratic hellhole we see today. 3. His policies oppressed and eventually massacred my people. He started the long government tradition of screwing over the natives. I don’t know what he did or said privately, so I will not comment if the private Jackson was a good man, however, the public Jackson was a horrible man (I admit, a couple of his policies were decent), and I think he shouldn’t have statues in his honor. Also, statues shouldn’t be on public land, only private land. P.S. Before anyone comments about how I want the statues of people I personally think are racist, I don’t believe few should have a statue of them erected. It’s a form of deification and few are worthy of deification.

Also, I don’t think Jesus should have statues because we aren’t meant to worship a caricature of Jesus, we are meant to worship his teaching and actions. Also, for anyone who isn’t Christian, I am not saying that your religions are dogmatically incorrect and false, I just personally believe in Christianity, as well as most of PragerU’s audience being Christian.

Averted the breakup of the union... something this channel arguably shouldn’t be advocating for as that same union allowed for slavery to continue. This very channel stating that slavery was THE reason for the civil war. I’m not saying we should all be causing property damage, but we shouldn’t look past his controversial presidency.

They are tearing down his statue in the name of BLM because at one point in his life he owned 250 slaves and was a BIG supporter of slavery. I’m not saying what they’re doing is OK it’s definitely not, but they do have a good reason. That’s coming from someone who’s your favorite president is Andrew Jackson.

@Andrew Tschetter Agreed. I never said that he shouldn't be remembered, and I don't agree with tearing down the statues either....But people should know the full truth (good & bad) about what really happened, and most people don't. In all honesty, I had to hide my comments about this, in a reply to yours, because surprisingly PragerU apparently decided that I was speaking too much truth about his role in the Trail of Tears, that they kept censoring me by deleting my comments! I wasn't vulgar or rude, just simply historically accurate (Dates, locations, facts, ect.)....I take a special interest on this subject in particular, since I have Choctaw & Cherokee ancestors who were forced to participate. After all the speaking out against Censorship & Cancel Culture that PragerU does, this really shocked me. It actually made me decide to unsubscribe.

@YO STEVO you are so very right, he and many others have treated our native brothers unjustly and do not deserve to be remembered for such evils, however if one looks at every human for their evils and ignores the good then we will never see anyone as truly heroic and noteworthy. For example Thomas Jefferson was one of the biggest anti slavery advocates of his time and yet he owned slaves. No One should be emulated for their evil but rather for their good actions

Favorite president?!....Wow! What he did to slaves was bad enough, but did you never hear of the Indian Removal Act of 1830 also know as the Trail of Tears? Between 1830-1850 this "Hero" forced tens of thousands of Natives to march from the Carolinas to Oklahoma, thousands died from exhaustion, starvation, disease, and outright MURDER. BLM has some valid complaints, but my ancestors don't get the attention they deserve and I'm sick of it.

@ROGER2095 You say we shouldn't dwell on the past, and that's understandable. But the past shouldn't be ignored, as it's something we can learn from. Especially when actions taken over a century ago are still affecting us today. The Trail of Tears you say was in the past? Andrew and the presidents after him gave it their best effort to erase an entire culture from history. He stole land from the Native Americans, land that was never returned. The slavery he supported and perpetuated? Its history is what's tearing our nation apart today. And who are these "evil people" influencing my actions, if I may so kindly ask? Why do you feel the need to call me weak-minded when you yourself are hiding your true views behind a veil of fancy wording? The people benefiting from "throwing bad events of the distant past in your face" are people who have been oppressed and denied their rights for generations. It's not me benefiting, but it's people who truly need it.
ROGER2095 7 өдрийн өмнө
@Peanut champion The thing about the past - and you'll learn this as you mature - is that it's over. The past is over. It's done. It cannot be changed. Whatever was good in the past will remain good, and whatever was bad will always be bad. You can - and should - visit the past, but it's foolish to dwell there. It's folly to get upset now over events of the past. It's over. The trail of tears is in the past. Slavery is in the past. All the wars of the past are over. No action is required now to remedy them. But there are evil people today who want to stir you up and influence your behavior, including to drive you to violence. One tried-and-true method to anger you is by throwing bad events of the distant past in your face. It works on the weak-minded and always has. As I said, someday you'll figure this out. In the meantime, try to see who benefits from people getting riled up today by events of the past. It's not you.

Andrew Jackson was probably the worst president in US History. He ignored the supreme court and enacted the trail of tears. He was very racist. He also founded the Jacksonian Democrat party which would eventually become the Democrat party. His presidency was a stain on the legacy of American presidents. He should be replaced on our currency. All of that being said, tearing down his statues and getting rid of history is not the way to go. Glorifying him as a hero is almost as damaging as erasing his story.

It also seems that they didn't tell us how he supported and led actions like the Trail of Tears, and passed many of the acts that caused the deaths of hundreds of thousands of Native Americans.

Andrew Jackson used the military to force the removal of Native Americans from the Southern US to the West in what would be called the Trail of Tears, even after the Supreme Court ruled that such an action would be illegal. According to Jackson, the only two options of dealing with “The Indian Problem” were removal or extermination. In this way, Jackson viewed himself as a savior, and saw Native peoples who wanted to stay on their land as “ungrateful”.

Andrew Jackson was both good and bad. He too down big banks, won the battle of New Orleans, and advocated for the first election where property wasn't a requirement to vote. On the other hand he committed native american genocide, and became rich off of slavery. History isn't black and white.

This kinda mirrors the taking down Confederate monuments movement. Jackson allowed or directly made some pretty awful things happen. A statue of him in a public place honors such a flawed man. I think instead of tearing it down, or just keeping it up, we should place a statue in a place of learning a museum maybe. So we can learn about Jackson, instead of blankly honoring him. His memory or his history wont die because we take it down. We honor people with statues. We learn with books. Let's learn instead, and make sure we dont repeat his flaws. And we can still honor his acomplishments.

Is this a joke? Trail of tears was the name given by Native Americans (NA), who marched by orders of Andrew Jackson, across rugged terrain. Thousands died. Jackson was the beginning of the Democrat party. Jackson Jr didn't die. Lyncoya Jackson, his adopted NA son, died. Today's young Democrats blame the killing of NA on conservative Republicans, but it is a dark stain on the Democrat party, along with slavery, KKK, opposition to the Black and Woman vote, Jim Crow, and now infanticide.

So what about his involvement in the trail of tears he was the reason for all of that he had the most slaves out of any president and that profit him big time that’s how he earned his fortune from Pennsylvania to New Orleans he had a domestic slave trade and ruled New Orleans like a dictator I believe when the country was fighting he put the city under marshal law and said he was going to remove them after the fighting surprise surprise he didn’t and anyone who spoke up he would have them arrested or ban them from the state of Louisiana he also lead the nation into a depression (panic of 1837) are these not reason that statute should be taken down he have his own museum why can’t you just put it there cause he is NOT a GREAT HISTORICAL FIGURE he ran the country how he wanted to this was very bias and when you talk about subjects like this included both sides

I'm sorry, this is supposedly an essential overview, yet the Trail of Tears is left out. This was, the SINGLE MOST SIGNIFICANT action taken by Andrew Jackson, hands down, regardless of political stance. This action expropriated native land from tens of thousands of its original inhabitants, directly leading to the deaths of at least 4000 Cherokee, 4800 Seminole, 3500 Chicksaw, anywhere between 2500 to 6500 Choctaw, and 200 Ponca. For reference, 3000 Americans died in 9/11. This entire action was omitted from the video. Do you know why people are tearing down statues? Not to erase the past, but to erase the idolization of racist figures. Andrew Jackon was was racist and committed one of the worst atrocities in American history. He does not deserve to be idolized, but he should be remembered so that we learn from it. Statues are not the platform for holistic analysis of a character, they are to present a one-sided glorification of a figure. That is a fact. There is no analysis in a literally larger-than-life metal statue portrayed in a regal pose with ornamentation. If you want to preserve Jackson's legacy, do so in a museum. That is where you learn. And PragerU, shame on you for not even mentioning the Trail of Tears. Shame on you.

While I do not condone destruction of federal property, this statue none the less needs to be taken down. Shown statue in the video, was erected in 1853. Now, a key thing to note here is that the 1851 Treaties of Traverse des Sioux and Mendota was in effect during the construction and erection of this statue, and if you don't know what the treaty is, the "MNopdia" will sum it up for you "The Treaty of Traverse des Sioux of 1851 is an agreement between the Sisseton and Wahpeton bands of Dakota and the U.S. government. It transferred ownership of much of southern and western Minnesota from the Dakota to the United States. Along with the Treaty of Mendota, signed that same year, it opened twenty-four million acres of land to settler-colonists. For the Dakota, these treaties marked another step in the process that saw them increasingly marginalized in and dismissed from land that had been-and remained-their home." So, it's not really a sign of bravery or honor during the revolutionary war, it's more of a celebration of f*cking the Native Americans over... There was multiple proposals in the early 1900's to remove and replace it with a statue of George Washington, however those proposals had been declined. Funny enough, the speaker during the erection ceremony in 1853 was Steven A. Douglas, a supporter of slavery...

​@Honey Badger Wow! I've almost never seen such hypocrisy in a youtube comment! Yes, he died in 1845. But that was 6 years after his death, And before the erection of this statue there was others before it in the late 1840's... so why did they need to build a statue of a president who committed mass genocide among the Native American population during another mass removal of native Americans? Also, No, I wasn't there, but neither where you, I'm basing this off of historical documentation ... while you are basing this off of "I'm Triggered! Somebody called my BS out!" the Taliban tearing Buddhist statues down is completely different, the statues weren't constructed during the mass removal of Muslims, unlike the statue in said video... making your point, pathetic. The "it's only suppersition" part is completely dumb, it's kind of like saying "Well just because this statue of Hitler was constructed right out side of a synagogue, doesn't mean it's there to offend jews!" I can't really believe how dumb you are... it's pathetic...

Andrew Jackson died in 1845......and regardless if Stephen Douglas spoke at the ceremony or not....it is only supposition on your part the intent of the monument......YOU WEREN'T THERE, YOU FARKING DON'T KNOW.....so how about you on the left quit rewriting history....remember, the Taliban destroyed Buddha statues because it was offensive to Allah.....priceless ancient antiquity gone FOREVER......👌🐷

Jacksonian Democrats have been tearing this country apart since before the Civil War, and this video even points this out inadvertently. His is one of the only three statues I would not have had a problem with saying goodbye to.

To everyone bringing up the Trail of Tears It's ture that he owned slaves and was responsible for the Trail of Tears which left a scare on the Cherokee nation. I fully agree these were failure that we should learn about so we don't repeat them......But do you know who else owned black slaves and actively worked against a marginalized group of people?: The Cherokee Nation. You read that right, the Cherokee also owned black slaves both before, during and even after the trail of tears. Yes, even after those events the largest slave revolt to happen in a Indian nation happen under the Cherokee Nations watch. The Cherokee even enthusiastically joined and fought on the side of Confederacy during the civil war in order to keep their slaves. Up untill recently they even had satues of of their own in honor of their Confederate heros. Now none of this makes what Jackson did to them okay, but the same groups of people that leftist want to cancel Jackson over also have people in their history who are guilty of everything he did. No one on the left would want to through away the Cherokee history because they where tragically flawed humans like all of us. So why should we through Jackson for being human and ingore the good things that he did? There are no flawless figures in human history. If you study anyone long enough, you'll find that they are usually more complicated then simply good or bad. You need to learn about failures so you don't repeat it, and their success so you can emulate it.

Andrew Jackson was a murderer. He shouldn’t be praised or even recognised.

No one familiar with the Trail of Tears would call Andrew Jackson "great". Serving as a military governor doesn't matter if you don't uphold basic American values.

He also had a parrot that was swearing so much and so loudly at his funeral that he had to be carried out of the building.

Let's not be too positive. The reason he was in Florida was to go catch runaway slaves in Spanish Florida. He then, without permission, took control of Florida in the name of the U.S. which wasn't supposed to happen.

Just gonna gloss over his Native American genocide by calling him an "Indian fighter" huh? That's definitely par for the course.
