1767 - 1845
Andrew Jackson, one of the country's
most honored war heroes, became the
seventh president of the United
States (1828-1836). Born in a log cabin
in South Carolina, Jackson fought in
the Revolution. He served in Congress,
and later became a judge and a Major
General in the Tennessee Militia. He
earned the nickname Old Hickory in
January 1815. He led the U.S. Forces
that defeated the British in New
Orleans, which made Jackson an
instant national hero. Jackson's
fame endured and helped him win
the presidency in 1828. As President
he expanded voting rights and paid
off the National debt.
