These are the sources I would recommend you use. However, you can use alternate ones as well, just make sure to include these in this paper. This paper must be about Andrew Jackson, the Bank War, and its future repercussion–if any. It’s important to provide a brief intro about who he is, his political stances, etc, and segway into his Presidency, agendas and his stance on Big Banks and his war he initiated on it. Conclude why you think it was a good idea, or at least of good intention and how he was a common man President, etc. Also, add whatever else you want that you think could add value to this paper and overall outline.

Can be 5-7 pages
