Peggy Eaton's maiden name was O'Neil.  The Eaton Affair was also termed the Petticoat Affair.  Here is a link for some more information to all other students:

Jacksonian Democracy

  • On one hand, expansion of the vote for white male farmers & wage earners; in 1824, less than 27% of adult white males voted whereas in 1828, 58% voted & in 1840, 80%
  • On the other hand, still limits, such as in the South, election laws still favored planters & no franchise for free blacks in the South & hardly anywhere in the North. Limited rights for women.
  • Martin Van Buren was instrumental in creating the first political machine and advocated for the spoils system to award public jobs to political supporters.
  • Van Buren helped Andrew Jackson’s campaign and Jackson won the 1828 election. The “common man’s president” was the first president from a trans-Appalachian state.
  • His critics labeled Jackson a “king” and a new political party emerged: the Whigs, who fought against Jacksonian policies (destroying Clay’s American System, vetoing numerous bills, and killing the bank)
  • The nullification crisis that arose due to Calhoun’s rejection of the tariff highlighted opposing interpretations of the Constitution, especially states’ rights v. federal power.
