Eulogy: A Second Try Fails. By 1816 the political climate was again [pretended to be] in favor of a central bank; by a narrow margin [w/ large margin of error], Congress agreed to charter the Second Bank of the United States. But when Andrew Jackson, a central bank foe, was elected president in 1828, [Old Hickory] vowed to kill it. His attack on its banker-controlled power touched a popular nerve with Americans, and when the Second Bank’s charter expired in 1836, it was not renewed. That is it gasped... It expired.
