This article examines the spirit and egalitarianism of Jacksonian Democracy on the state level rather than the national level via an examination of the state constitutional convention of 1835. The legal reforms brought on by Jackson's presidency were so extensive that several states required constitutional conventions to make the necessary changes to their laws. North Carolina's constitutional convention is exemplary of the various influences at work on the delegates and of the mood of the times, as well as providing insight into the phenomenon of Jacksonian Democracy on a local level.
