Abstract

The "Age of Jackson" has received considerable attention from historians of American society and much of this history has praised the qualitarian efforts of members of the Jacksonian Democratic party. This thesis studies the Pennsylvania Jacksonians and their attitudes toward Negro political rights during the late 1830's and discovers that Jacksonian attempts to expand the franchise excluded Negro residents in Pennsylvania.
