Question
what was jacksons campaign slogan in the 1824 election.?

Answer
Hello,

For most of the 19th Century, it was considered unseemly for Presidential Candidates to campaign for the Presidency. Candidates did not make speeches or use slogans.  However, many others worked on their behalf to get them elected.  The main theme for Jackson was "Hero of New Orleans" which noted his victory over the British there in 1815.

I hope this helps!
