Andrew Jackson

Andrew Jackson was the 7th President of the United States of America. He is best known for two things: He was the first US President to ever have an attempt on his life by an assassin & he was instrumental in implementing the trail of tears.

Interestingly, his would-be assassin had two guns that both jammed when triggered. Jackson responded to the attempted assassination by beating the man violently with his cane.
