 2.) Andrew Jackson & Martin Van Buren

Andrew Jackson did many things in his time as President, many of which couldn’t be done by other Presidents but one action of his that sticks out and lives on in infamy is the creation of the “Trail of Tears.” As for Martin Van Buren, he took this disaster and made little effort to fix any of the mistakes that were made.
