Henry Clay ran for president a lot of times and lost... 3 i think to be exact. Spokesman of Western expansionist interests and leader of the "war hawks". Also helped bring on the war of 1812. Pushed for the Missouri Compromise and served as a congressman.

Tecumseh (c.1768 – October 5, 1813), whose given name might be more accurately rendered as Tecumtha or Tekamthi, was a famous leader of the Shawnee people. He spent much of his life attempting to rally disparate Native American tribes in a mutual defense of their lands, which eventually culminated in his death in the War of 1812. Tecumseh was greatly admired in his day, remains a respected icon for Native Americans, and is considered a national hero in Canada. Even his longtime adversary William Henry Harrison considered Tecumseh to be "one of those uncommon geniuses which spring up occasionally to produce revolutions and overturn the established order of things."1

Andrew Jackson (March 15, 1767 – June 8, 1845), one of the founders of the Democratic Party, was the seventh President of the United States, serving from 1829 to 1837. Until his election, every President had either been from Massachusetts or a member of the Virginia plantation elite. Jackson was nicknamed "Old Hickory" and (by American Indians) "Sharp Knife". He was the first president who had lived on the American frontier, and thus the first not primarily associated with one of the original thirteen colonies. Jackson became the symbol of an era in American history—known as the "Age of Jackson" or the "Jacksonian Era"—an era traditionally seen as dominating the years between the War of 1812 and the Civil War. A number of cities are named after him, notably Jacksonville, Florida and Jackson, Mississippi.

A tariff is a political act, sometimes known as the customs duty. A revenue tariff is set with the intent of raising money for the government. A protective tariff, usually applied to imported goods, is intended to artificially inflate prices of imports and "protect" domestic industries from foreign competition (see also effective rate of protection). The distinction between protective and revenue tariffs is moot; revenue tariffs offer protection, and protective tariffs produce some revenue unless they are prohibitive in which case little or nothing is imported of that product, thus resulting in trivial or no revenue.

A protective tariff is a tariff imposed to protect domestic firms from import competition. A protective tariff is a high tax. Protective tariffs are one of two types of tariffs: Protective and excise. Protective is a higher tax than the excise tax which is mean to raise money for a government, or economic body.

Internal improvements was the preferred term, as used by proponents of the American System of economics such as James Monroe and DeWitt Clinton[1], for discussion of government-supported infrastructure or public works. The term was used in connection with such projects as the Erie Canal, the Cumberland Road, and the Transcontinental Railroad.

The Virginia Dynasty occurred during the early period of United States History. Once the United States Constitution was adopted, four of the first five Presidents were from Virginia, at that time the leading state of the South. The term is not always applied to George Washington, who, though a Virginia planter, was closely aligned with the policies of the Federalist Party for the most part, and was succeeded by his Vice President, John Adams of Massachusetts.
