Buchbeschreibung zu „People that Changed the Course of History“

Have you ever wondered about the man behind the face on the $20 bill? Andrew Jackson, the seventh president of the United States, was born 250 years ago. During his two terms as president, Andrew Jackson enacted a number of changes to the U.S. government and created policies that are controversial to this day.

On March 15, 1767, in a backwoods settlement in the Carolinas, Andrew Jackson was born into poverty, but eventually rose to become a wealthy and successful lawyer and politician. He was a brawler and viewed himself as the direct representative of common man in politics. During the War of 1812, Jackson served as a major general and became a national war hero. This popularity eventually led to him defeating John Q. Adams in the presidential election of 1828.

During his two terms as president, Jackson enacted several controversial policies, including the closing of the Bank of the United States and the Indian Removal Act, which eventually led to the Trail of Tears. Whether you love him or hate him, Andrew Jackson was one of the most influential presidents of his day. Take a closer look at “Old Hickory” and his impact on American history.
