7th President of the United States

7th President of the United States

Andrew Jackson was the 7th President of the United States from 1829-1837.  Based in Tennessee,  Jackson dominated the Second Party System in the 1820s and 1830s. “As President, he dismantled the Second Bank of the United States” and initiated the forced relocation and resettlement of  Native American tribes from the Southeast to west of the Mississippi.  Followers of Jackson formed what is now known as the Democratic party. Nicknamed “Old Hickory” because of his aggressiveness, Jackson fought in many duels with some fatal opponents.

Jackson was born in March 15 , 1767. Jackson’s father died just three weeks prior to his. For this reason his exact birthplace is not clear due to his mother dealing with the death of her husband. Jackson however claims to have been born at an Uncle’s house in South Carolina but evidence produced in 1850 states his birth may have occurred at another’s Uncle’s house in North Carolina.

The first presidential attack was against Jackson. He  ordered Robert B. Randolph be dismissed from the Navy for embezzlement. During a stopover near Alexandria, West Virginia Randolph appeared and struck the President and fled the scene.  He was chased by several members of Jackson’s party including Washington Irving. Jackson did not press charges. January 30, 1835 is believed to be the date of  the first assassination attempt of a President occurring near the United States Capitol. As Jackson was leaving the funeral of South Carolina US  Representative Warren Davis, an unemployed house painter ” Richard Lawrence”  aimed a pistol at Jackson that misfired. Lawrence then pulled out a second pistol that also misfired. Legend states that Lawrence was restrained and Jackson beat him with a cane.
