How did American culture in the 1820s and 1830s reflect the democratic impulse of the period?

Report as

The 1820s and 1830s witnessed the rise of popular democracy and a swelling of national political involvement. The nation's founders had believed that "democracy" contained dangerous impulses, but by the 1820s and '30s the term had become more acceptable and applicable to American institutions. The role of the federal government was a major concern that assisted a great swelling of popular political interest.
