'All Must Have a Say': Internal Improvements and Andrew Jackson's Political Rise in North Carolina in 1824

Record #:
Andrew Jackson's rise in politics in North Carolina was attributed to several factors: his legendary status as general, the desire of North Carolinians to come out of the shadow of Virginia's presidents, his vague stance on tariffs, and most particularly, his stance on internal improvements, where eastern and western portions of the state both supported internal improvement projects, an important factor in the formation of the People's Ticket.
