This excellent Common Core-aligned primary source analysis activity features 5 political cartoons related to Andrew Jackson. Each deals with a different aspect of Jackson's presidency: The Spoils System, the Tariff of Abominations, The National Bank, The Indian Removal Act, and Jackson's use of the presidential veto. Each cartoon is paired with a set of analysis questions for students to answer. An answer key for this is provided along with blown-up, larger versions of each cartoon.
