Andrew Jackson

On March 15, 1767, Andrew Jackson was born in Waxhaw, South Carolina. The 7th President of the United States, Jackson earned the nickname “Old Hickory” because of his toughness and agressive personality. As president, Jackson was known for his support of individual liberty and the creation of the Democratic Party. Although dubbed the “people’s president,” historians have criticize his support of slavery and his role in the forceful removal of Native Americans from their lands.
