About Andrew Jackson
Andrew Jackson was the seventh President of the United States of America. He served from 1829-1837.
When Andrew was 13 yrs old he was captured by the British during the Revolutionary War. He was eventually released and went to school to become a lawyer. Jackson became a Colonel of the Tennessee militia. During the War of 1812, Jackson really made a name for himself due to his achievements. He lost his first bid for President but in 1829 became the seventh President of the US. On top of being President he owned a very profitable plantation complete with slaves. He was considered a humane slave owner, however, did whip slaves he thought were disloyal to him. Andrew is a very controversial President.
Andrew was married to Rachel Jackson. This marriage was controversial due to Rachel not being divorced from her first husband before becoming Mrs.Jackson. Jackson’s opponents used this to their advantage and often attacked his wife’s honor. Jackson was shot in the chest during a duel which was sparked by someone saying something of ill repute about Mrs. Jackson. Andrew blamed their attacks on his wife’s early death from a heart attack.
