Andrew Jackson's Birthday
Andrew Jackson (1767-1845), seventh President of the United States, was born March 15, 1767 in South Carolina. The first American president to be born in a log cabin, Jackson was a hero of the War of 1812, an Indian fighter and a Tennessee lawyer. Neither a particularly intelligent man nor a wise one, Jackson became the symbol of his age by being the right man believing in the right things at the right time. Success was a race, Jackson believed, and the government's primary responsibility was to guarantee that every man got a fair chance at winning. Jackson's administration (1829-37) saw the development of modern-style political parties and changes in the voting laws that nearly tripled the electorate. He died June 8, 1845.
