Andrew Jackson – Fascinating Facts
Andrew Jackson is our nation’s seventh President, and the fourth president we’ll study in this 10 Day Series.
- Andrew Jackson was the first president to come from a poor family. All of the presidents before him had come from money. Most people liked him for being common, as they were also.
- Jackson’s nickname was “Old Hickory.” Hickory wood is one of the toughest, hardest kinds of woods. Jackson was injured multiple times and suffered from many diseases, which earned him the nickname.
- Jackson lived wildly in his younger days, and even until his early years in practicing law.
- When Jackson campaigned for president the second time, he wrote songs and sayings, drew signs, made buttons, and even handed out hickory canes! No one had ever done these things before and people responded well to his tactics.
- Jackson loved to fight in duels! He once was shot near the heart, and the bullet was never removed. It stayed in his chest the rest of his life.
- President Jackson dearly loved his wife Rachel. After she died, he wore a locket with her picture around his neck everywhere he went.
