15. Jacksonian 1835 " The past we cannot recall, but the future we can provide for." The Indians are removed at the expense of of the United States..and also furnished gratuitously." Jackson had a tactic of promising rewards in land and plunder. Also, very "Jeffersonian" in handling the Indians by "civilizing" them.

Jefferson's Notes 1853 "The first difference which strikes us is that of color...physical distinctions proving a difference of race...we have had under our eyes the races of black and red men, they have never viewed by us as subjects of natural history. Blacks...are inferior to whites in the endowments both of body and mind. This unfortunate difference of colour, and perhaps of faculty, is a powerful obstacle to the emancipation of these people.
