Andrew Jackson vs. Banks and Corporations.
The destruction of the Bank loosed American enterprise from its only central restraint. Gorged with federal deposits and with no one to control their note issues, state banks went on a lending spree that built up a speculative bubble and ended, just as Jackson left office in 1837, in a sickening crash. Jackson's culpability for the ensuing depression is still debated.
Jackson himself came to oppose all chartered banks and banknotes, state as well as federal, and to favor a return to gold and silver “hard money”—a radical deflation which Whigs charged would throw progress back a century.
In Jackson's farewell address on retiring from office, he elaborated the language of the Veto, condemning bank paper as an engine of oppression and warning of the insidious "money power" and of the growing control exerted by faceless corporations over ordinary citizens' lives.
Jackson and the Second Bank,
Andrew Jackson and freemasonry.
It is suggested that President Jackson become a Mason in Harmony lodge No.1 in Tennessee. Harmony Lodge began as No.29 under the charter of North Carolina, later to be named No.1 under the Tennessee grand Lodge in 1913.
It has been said that Br. Jackson attended lodge at Clover Bottom Lodge under the Grand Lodge of Kentucky. He was present in lodge at Greeneville in 1801 and acted as Senior Warden pro-tem. The records of St. Tammany Lodge No.29 at Nashville, which became Harmony Lodge no.1 under the Grand Lodge of Tennessee, show that Jackson was a member.
A very active Freemason, President Jackson served as the Grand Master of Tennessee Masons from 1822 to 1823.
Andrew Jackson and christianity.
And his final words, uttered on his deathbed were:
What is the matter with my dear children, have I alarmed you? Oh, do not cry — be good children and we will all meet in heaven.3
Despite his religiosity, Jackson was a staunch defender of the separation of church and state and had no problems lambasting his fellow politicians whose religion dictated their political actions.4 Jackson preached religious tolerance, (as long as they were some form of Christian, at least) and said:
Our excellent constitution guarantees to every one freedom of religion… All who profess Christianity, believe in a Savior and that by and through Him we must be saved. We ought therefor to consider all good Christians… be him Presbyterian, Episcopalian, Baptist, Methodist or Roman Catholic. Let it be remembered… that no established religion can exist under our glorious constitution.5
Some of Jackson’s political stances would most certainly be judged by today’s society to be on the wrong side of history. For example, Jackson strongly supported and endorsed the institution of slavery.
Cant find source if Andrew Jackson did really discover what freemasonry was about or considently perhaps the charter he assisted was more discrete and if he really said that line or that if he really sent that letter in 1829-January-23 to Philip M. Jhonson confirming he was a freemason and made a mistake by becoming one butthat he would exploit his position to later overthrow the ones behind freemasonry and if he did really defund lodges.
As you know victors write history but to support something we need evidence and well i guess the fact Jackson fought against the Banks and corporations tell us the possibility that he may have fought against freemasonry later or that he may have never discover what was freemasonry all about. And yes he became grand master but served that title for very short time which brings to the question why??.
Perhaps the statement he could possible had made against freemasonry possibly in 1832 has been hidden since that would link freemasonry with bankers and corporations??.
Minute 45:57 and 1:34:26 until the end of the civil war.
Mm, seems there are first 3 degrees and the third being Master Mason(not sure which degree Jackson reached but since he opposed the bankers and corporations likely was low degree) and later there are others and ends in the 33.
