  • Andrew Jackson was the seventh President of the United States. He was born in a poor farming family somewhere near the unmarked border between North and South Carolina. Jackson was captured and mistreated by the British during the American Revolutionary War. He became a lawyer and in 1796 he was in Nashville and helped found the state of Tennessee. He was elected to the U.S. House of Representatives, and then to the U. S. Senate, Jackson was in 1801 appointed colonel in the Tennessee militia, which became his political as well as military base. Jackson owned hundreds of slaves who worked on the Hermitage plantation which he acquired in 1804. Defending the honor of his wife Rachel, Jackson killed a man in a duel in 1806. Known for his fiery temper, Jackson's enemies feared him. Jackson gained national fame through his role in the War of 1812, where he won decisive victories over the Indians and then over the main British invasion army at the Battle of New Orleans. Jackson's army was sent to Florida where, without orders, he deposed the small Spanish garrison. This led directly to the treaty which formally transferred Florida from Spain to the United States.

  • Recent appraisals label him opportunist and reactionary, but he was a brilliant general and able president who upheld nationalist principles, paid off the national debt, and warily negotiated with foreign powers
