Born into a non-aristocratic poor family, somewhere in the Carolina’s on March 14, 1767, was a man named Andrew Jackson. Jackson, also called “Old Hickory” was a very bold proactive man in American history. From being a military hero and founding the democratic party to enacting the trail of tears and dismantling the of the Bank of the United States, the man and his legacy are a prominent topic for scholarly debate. Some believe he was a great president and some believe he was the worse president. But if you look at it from a moral perceptive or in the eyes of a foreigner, Jackson’s legacy was far more villainous than heroic.
"How did the Great War for Empire change the relationship between England and its American colonies?" The Great War for Empire, beginning in 1754 and ending in 1763, may be considered the first global war. During the war Britain and Prussia formed an alliance against France and Austria which Spain later joined. The war had two main fronts, the one between Prussia and Austria in Europe and the other between Britain, France, and Spain in the American colonies and at sea.
Young officers like Grant and parliamentarian E. Lee, UN agency would later lead armies against each other within the war, had their initial combat experiences in North American nation. Generals President Taylor and Scott won a series of exceptional victories against the Mexican armies. This success was in spite of the very fact that Mexican troops outnumbered the Americans in most cases. In Sep of 1847, once a masterful land campaign, American troops beneath Scott captured Mexico 's capital, Mexico City, and also the fighting terminated. With the losses adding up, Mexico turned to recent standby General Antonio Lopez Delaware Santa Ana, the strong man who had been living in exile in Cuba.

Benedict Arnold’s significance and influence in the Revolutionary War The Continental Army Arnold started the war off by organizing a militia in his hometown and was voted the captain.

The Battle of Horseshoe Bend had a major significant impact on the expansion of the United States. This battle ended the Creek War successfully with General Andrew Jackson clearing the Mississippi Territory for the American expansion. This endeavor catapulted his career and made him the one our memorable Presidents. General Jackson knew what would advance his career and this was obviously it. I believe he was motivated by competition with fellow officer, General John Coffee, and what happened to him as a child when he encountered the Indians for the first time.
The Battle of Chancellorsville was fought from April 30, 1863- May 6, 1863. This was one of Robert E. Lee’s greatest victory during the American Civil War due to him facing an enemy force nearly twice the size of his own. The battle was fought because of the Unionj troops crossing Rapphahnnock River. When the Union troop crossed the river it caused the conderates to retaliate. The war would not end until the Unions retreated back to there
In his first battle, he was able to box the British out of Boston, but later that year he was almost captured when he lost New York City. During every battle he rode in the front never in the back because he wanted to show his troops that they were all in this together. Geography played an important part in the American Revolution. Americans also known as Patriots knew the land very well.
Admiral David Farragut has successfully seized New Orleans from the grasp of the Confederacy on April 24th, 1862. Two of the major opponents to the Union’s advancement in the war were Fort Jackson and Fort St. Philip, which had been brutally seized from Union troops. Those forts were used to provide a front line of defense from any kind of naval assault on New Orleans. Now, however, securing New Orleans has put a serious dent in the Confederacy’s strength. Farragut accomplished this great feat by organizing an assault on the enemy forts with a daring fleet of 24 gunboats, 19 mortar boats, and nearly 15,000 soldiers on the night of April 24th; it soon forced the forts to surrender.

Andrew Jackson's presidency was arguably one of the most controversial presidencies in the history of the United States. However, Jackson committed more villainous actions and made more villainous decisions than he committed heroic actions and made heroic decisions. First of all, Jackson viewed the Native Americans as conquered subjects who lived within the borders of the United States. He believed that they should not be allowed to have their own government within the nation's borders. However, Jackson's way of forcing the Native Americans to withdraw to the area called the Indian Territory was perhaps even more horrendous and unconstitutional as it included the death of one-fourth of the Cherokee Indians and Jackson disobeying the rule of the Supreme Court.
During the American Revolution in the Southern backcountry, there were several battles that served as turning points of the war. These battles outcomes relied on the use/knowledge of the land and weaponry of the opponents. The execution of this knowledge allowed for these simple battles in the South Carolina backcountry to turn into turning points of the entire revolutionary war in the colonies. In the Southern backcountry, the majority of the fighting forces was made up of militia.
Andrew Jackson If I had lived in the 1820’s I would of have voted for Andrew Jackson because he won the battle of New Orleans against the british, he was powerful and controlling, and that he hunts down runaway fugitive slaves and hostile semonals. First of all, I would've voted for Jackson if I lived in the 1820’s because he defended New Orleans from the British because on (page 228-229) it states, “The attackers suffered the most devastating defeat of the entire war, losing over two thousand, killed and wounded, in half an hour, as compared with some seventy for the Americans. It was an astonishing victory for Jackson and his men.
