Andrew was an orphan who overcame humble beginnings in the rural areas of the Carolinas only to later become a hard working, self made businessman. Jackson’s military exploits made him very popular and a rising political star. In 1822 the Tennessee Legislature nominated him for the presidency of the United States. To boost his credentials, Jackson ran for and won election to the U.S. Senate the following year Jacksons's two main opponents were John Quincy Adams and William H. Crawford. Both candidates had been looking to become the President since 1816.
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.
Andrew Jackson was born March 15, 1767. He was not only a lawyer but also a landowner. Jackson had become a nation wide war hero after defeating the British in New Orleans during the war of 1812. Andrew Jackson had been elected the seventh president of the United States in 1828. Known as the “peoples president.” Jackson destroyed the National Bank, founded the Democratic Party and is known for his support of individual liberty.

General Ulysses S. Grant had a great impact on the United States both in his time as a war general and in his time as president. His role in the Civil War was instrumental to the Union victory and the strategies he employed saved many union troops and ended the war quickly. He had many wins, but also many losses and setbacks that were devastating.He learned and adapted through those setbacks and won the war and the American public. The United States would have had a much harder time winning the war and with recovery efforts afterward were it not for General Grant. Grant was a very prominent figure of the time period and led the Union to victory and helped heal the fractured United States afterward.
Jackson was, and is still remembered as a brave man, although some others say he is a war veteran, as well as a war hero, or a hero in general, with the title of our 7th president of our very patriotic nation, the United States of America, which we have fought with Britain for Independence for, some decades before the time of his election, following the previous president John Quincy Adams, who has served before his presidency half a decade before, then after giving the title of Mr. President, which again, he was known as a hero because of his many good deeds he did during his presidency, one of which was dispatching of the National Bank of the United States, which farmers thought was a good deed of hid, because of their Southern beliefs, different
The War of 1812 ended with the Treaty of Ghent, but who was the overall winner? It is thought, that the Americans were the winning party, and the British was the defeated party. There are some other groups and nations that either won, or lost the war. In my opinion, the Americans won the War of 1812 because they won more battles. The last battle of the war was the Battle of New Orleans.
Both were influential leaders that many people looked up too. Abraham Lincoln before he was assassinated in 1865 he definitely left his mark on the world. Without his leadership people, today would not be where they are today. He was considered the greatest President of the United States. His action leads to the freeing of the slaves.
Throughout the earlier years of the war the Confederates won nearly all their major battles, such as the very first battle at Fort Sumter, or the following one at Bull Run. Despite their disadvantages, the South won, boosting their morale and giving them hope for the battles to come. They continued to win, under the leadership of Robert Lee, and Thomas Jackson, battle after battle the South emerged victorious, that is until the real turning point of the war, The Battle of Gettysburg. The battle took 3, long,
America is a land of opportunity and freedom. Men and women had to sacrifice their lives for what we take for granted today. After this trip I have a very good idea of how powerful our country is now but with the power comes struggle and death. Our country started from a small group of will driven men and now we are the strongest country in the world thriving off of 325 million patriots. Over the last three hundred years many strong men and women have stepped up and led America to victory, our founding fathers are just a few men to broke through the struggle and inspired us to be brave and fight for our country.
