The best answer is C. Usually compared to lion, Andrew Jackson was a very controlling president and was usually compared to a king because of his actions. He vetoed more than the 6 presidents before him combined. A would imply that Jackson let the Native Americans have the land when he did not. B was the opposite of what really happened. C was somewhat close in that the Cherokee did lose the case( not originally but after Jackson repealed it) but they did not ask Jackson for help. He rather forced them out of the land in the Trail of Tears.
