Transcript of Andrew Jackson

Andrew Jackson
Maintaining Power Through Strict Rules and Regulation is Efficient - Sam
Jackson threatened to promote the proclamation with the use of federal arms. He was prepared to use the military to enforce the rule of the Federal government. Jackson also frightened eastern bankers with his personality and angered southern planters. It is debated whether Jackson's personality took over his presidency or not. Some admired how enforcing he was, and other think he was too self obsessed.
Never Give Up -Sam
Jackson's persistence led him to be a successful attorney at a young age. In battle he was remembered as a brave and courageous leader. During the Battle of New Orleans, he managed to keep his casualties under 20, while devastating the british with over 2,000 casualties. As a Presidential candidate, Jackson failed to gain a majority vote and was rejected by the House of representatives. He did not loose hope, and he ran for a second time, and easily won.
Andrew Jackson's lessons by Sam Schwarz, Robbie Murdza, Patrick O'brien and Max Munafo
Respect Other People- Robbie
Andrew Jackson
Elected President
Andrew Jackson has been in many duels involving guns, shooting, and killing. Although he has killed people, there have been many duels that both participants ended the duel without getting shot. This is a very important part of being a president later on in his life. For example, when Jackson dueled off with Waightstill Avery, they both fired shots, but purposefully missed. Being a president doesn't mean that you get to boss people around. Presidents have to respect other people to get elected.

You Can Be Whoever You Want To
Jackson was raised humbly, he never got a formal education, but he still became a laywer and the President of the United States. This shows that anyone can be who they want to be if they try hard enough. President Obama also defied the norm by becoming the first African-American president.
"Friend (n): One who listens, doesn't judge, and somehow makes everything alright" -Unknown
Andrew Jackson's most valued colleague and one of his best friends was Martin Van Buren, who was his Vice President and successor as President. That sort of friendship creates a powerful relationship and they worked very well together. This relationship is similar to our current President with his Vice President, Joe Biden.

Expand your horizons - Sam/Robbie
During Jackson's Presidency, he passed The Indian Removal Act of 1830 and forced indians out of the south. He saw them as an obstacle that would slow the growth of the country, and its progress. Jackson would not stop his progress for anything, and he was focused on expanding. This was being a good president only for America and not for other Races. It is good that Jackson was trying to expand his country, but it was not very nice of him. He should have found a way that the Indians could speed up the growth of his country.
Andrew Jackson's father was put in jail and got small pox. Two days later, he died in jail. His mother, got cholera and also died. At the time of his mothers sickness, Andrew was also sick. When his mother passed away, he became an orphan at the age of 14. He had no immediate family left and only a few years of education. Even his own relatives thought Jackson as a embarrassment to the family. Despite all of this, Andrew Jackson became the President of the United States, and may have been one of the greatest presidents ever. He never gave up on his life. He succeeded in his goals and changed the world
Being a Man
A Monumental Achievement

Throughout all of America's history, Andrew Jackson was the only President that managed to accomplish the monumental feat of erasing 100% of all of America's debt. The debt at the beginning of his presidency was $75 million. At the end his presidency was ZERO.
Patriotism through Military Service
Jackson was a military man. He was a Brigadier General in the Continental Army and the US Army. He fought in both the Revolutionary War and the War of 1812. This commitment to our country must have cemented his relationship with the United States and created a powerful emotional bond that motivated him to do as much as he could to ensure the well being of the country. Many presidents after Jackson have served in the military, but few have actually been in combat. The most recent US President to be in combat was George H. W. Bush who was a Lieutenant in WWII and earned the Distinguished Flying Cross for "Heroism or extraordinary achievement while participating in aerial flight".
Assassination Attempt

President Jackson was the first President
to ever experience an assassination
attempt, and he narrowly escaped with his life. On January 30th, 1835, Richard Lawrence approached Andrew Jackson and shot at him, but his gun misfired. Jackson then furiously and mercilessly wailed on the attacker with his cane. The attacker then pulled a second gun on Andrew Jackson, which also misfired.
