ANDREW JACKSON, the seventh President of the United States, was born in Waxhaw settlement, N. C,, March 15, 1767, a few days after his father's death. His parents were poor emigrants from Ireland, and took up their abode in Waxhaw settlement, where they lived in deepest poverty.

Andrew, or Andy, as he was universally called, grew up a very rough, rude, turbulent boy. His features were coarse, his form ungainly, and there was but very little in his character made visible which was attractive.

When only thirteen years old he joined the volunteers of Carolina against the British invasion. In 1781, he and his brother Robert were captured and imprisoned for a time at Camden. A British officer ordered him to brush his mud-spattered hoots. 'I am a prisoner of war, not your servant,' was the reply of the dauntless boy.

Andrew supported himself in various ways, such as working at the saddler's trade, teaching school, and clerking in a general store, until 1784, when he entered a law...Read MORE...

NewsThe War of 1812 was a conflict between the United States and Great Britain, lasting from 1812 to 1815. It was primarily fueled by issues such as trade restrictions due to Britain's ongoing war with France, impressment of American sailors into the British Navy, and British support of Native American tribes against American expansion. The war ended with the Treaty of Ghent, restoring pre-war boundaries but resolving few of the initial disputes.
1815 - British defeated by Andrew Jackson in Battle of New Orleans

The Battle of New Orleans in 1815 was a pivotal event in American history, marking the final major battle of the War of 1812 between the United States and Great Britain. The battle took place from January 8 to January 18, 1815, primarily fought between British forces under General Edward Pakenham and American forces led by General Andrew Jackson. Despite being outnumbered and outgunned, Jackson's forces achieved a decisive victory, which elevated Jackson to national fame and solidified his status as a military hero.

The battle is particularly notable for its timing, as it occurred after the Treaty of Ghent had been signed in December 1814, officially ending the war. However, news of the treaty's signing had not yet reached the combatants in Louisiana, leading to the continuation of hostilities.

1818 - Western portion of Kentucky purchased from the Chickasaw Indians (Jackson Purchase)
In 1818, Andrew Jackson, a Tennessee general, and Isaac Shelby, Revolutionary War hero and former governor of Kentucky, negotiated a significant land purchase known as the Jackson Purchase. This agreement involved the acquisition of a vast territory in the western portion of Kentucky from the Chickasaw Indians. The land, totaling around 7,000 square miles, was acquired in exchange for a payment of $300,000. The Jackson Purchase was a part of the broader U.S. government's policy of Indian removal, which sought to acquire Native American lands for white settlement.

The acquisition of the Jackson Purchase had several implications. It opened up new lands for American settlement, particularly for farmers looking for fertile land in the west. The purchase also helped to secure the western frontier of the United States, creating a buffer zone between Native American territories and the expanding American settlements. Additionally, the acquisition of the Jackson Purchase furthered the...Read MORE...

1829 - March 4 - Andrew Jackson (1767-1845) becomes 7th President of the United States.
As president, Jackson greatly expanded the power and prestige of the presidential office and carried through an unprecedented program of domestic reform, vetoing the bill to extend the United States Bank, moving toward a hard-money currency policy, and checking the program of federal internal improvements. He also vindicated federal authority against South Carolina with its doctrine of nullification and against France on the question of debts. The support given his policies by the workingmen of the East as well as by the farmers of the East, West, and South resulted in his triumphant reelection in 1832 over Clay.

1830 - The Indian Removal Act marks the beginning of the forced relocation of five tribes of native Americans, known as Trail of Tears
The Indian Removal Act was a law passed by Congress on May 28, 1830, during the presidency of Andrew Jackson. It authorized the president to negotiate with Indian tribes in the Southern United States for their removal to federal territory west of the Mississippi River in exchange for their homelands.

The act was strongly supported by non-native people of the South, who were eager to gain access to lands inhabited by the Five Civilized Tribes. Christian missionaries, most notably Jeremiah Evarts, protested against its passage.

The 'Five Civilized Tribes,' made up of the Chickasaw, Choctaw, Muscogee-Creek, Seminole, and original Cherokee Nations, had been established as autonomous nations in the southeastern United States.

At the beginning of the 1830s, nearly 125,000 Native Americans lived on millions of acres of land in Georgia, Tennessee, Alabama, North Carolina and Florida–land their ancestors had occupied and cultivated for generations. By the end of the...Read MORE...
