The Age of Jackson is often seen as a turning point in American politics, one where we turn from a politics where few could vote or hold office to one where many could. Define Jacksonian Democracy and show how it changed the political system from what came before.

In your opinion, is our political system today more influenced by Jacksonian Democracy or what came before?
