A sample entry

The election of Andrew Jackson continued the country on the road towards Westward Expansion. Jackson was from the state of Tennessee which at that time was considered a western state. From the time of his election Jackson formed a policy of removal of Native Americans from their homelands as he viewed them as an inferior people in need of assistance from the government. Without this assistance the various tribes stood to be eradicated. (EFFECTS) The removal of Native Americans would allow for white settlers to move onto their land and thus continue westward.
