He pronounced himself "disgusted with the administration" of President John Adams and resigned the following year without explanation.
His official reason for resigning was ill health. He had been suffering financially from poor land ventures, and so it is also possible that he wanted to return full-time to his business interests. After arriving in Tennessee, Jackson won the appointment of judge advocate of the Tennessee militia.
At that time, most free men were members of the militia. The organizations, intended to be called up in case of conflict with Europeans or Indians, resembled large social clubs.
Jackson saw it as a way to advance his stature. Sevier was a popular Revolutionary War veteran and former governor, the recognized leader of politics in eastern Tennessee.
Subsequently, in , when Sevier announced his intention to regain the governorship, Roane released the evidence. Sevier insulted Jackson in public, and the two nearly fought a duel over the matter. Despite the charges leveled against Sevier, he defeated Roane, and continued to serve as governor until In addition to his legal and political career, Jackson prospered as planter , slave owner , and merchant.
He built a home and the first general store in Gallatin, Tennessee , in The primary crop was cotton , grown by slaves—Jackson began with nine, owned as many as 44 by , and later up to , placing him among the planter elite. Jackson also co-owned with his son Andrew Jackson Jr. Men, women, and child slaves were owned by Jackson on three sections of the Hermitage plantation. The size and quality of the Hermitage slave quarters exceeded the standards of his times.
To help slaves acquire food, Jackson supplied them with guns, knives, and fishing equipment. At times he paid his slaves with monies and coins to trade in local markets. The Hermitage plantation was a profit-making enterprise. At various times he posted advertisements for fugitive slaves who had escaped from his plantation. For the standards of his times, Jackson was considered a humane slave owner who furnished his slaves food and housing, and he did not prohibit his female slaves from having children.
By May , Charles Dickinson , who, like Jackson, raced horses, had published an attack on Jackson in the local newspaper, and it resulted in a written challenge from Jackson to a duel. Since Dickinson was considered an expert shot, Jackson determined it would be best to let Dickinson turn and fire first, hoping that his aim might be spoiled in his quickness; Jackson would wait and take careful aim at Dickinson.
Dickinson did fire first, hitting Jackson in the chest. The bullet that struck Jackson was so close to his heart that it could not be removed. Under the rules of dueling, Dickinson had to remain still as Jackson took aim and shot and killed him. He became a social outcast.
After the Sevier affair and the duel, Jackson was looking for a way to salvage his reputation. He chose to align himself with former Vice President Aaron Burr , who after leaving office in went on a tour of the western United States. He seems to have been planning a military operation to conquer Spanish Florida and drive the Spanish from Texas. I have a hope Should their be a call that at least, two thousand Volunteers can be lead into the field at a short notice—That number commanded by firm officers and men of enterprise—I think could look into Santafee and Maxico—give freedom and commerce to those provinces and establish peace, and a permanent barier against the inroads and attacks of forreign powers on our interior—which will be the case so long as Spain holds that large country on our borders.
Jackson agreed to provide boats and other provisions for the expedition. He was further outraged when he learned from the same man of the involvement of Brigadier General James Wilkinson , whom he deeply disliked, in the plan. In December, Jefferson, a political opponent of Burr, issued a proclamation declaring that a treasonous plot was underway in the West and calling for the arrest of the perpetrators. Jackson, safe from arrest because of his extensive paper trail, organized the militia.
Burr was soon captured, and the men were sent home. The defense team decided against placing him on the witness stand, fearing his remarks were too provocative.
The latter was part of the Jeffersonian wing of the Democratic-Republican Party. Leading up to , the United States found itself increasingly drawn into international conflict. Formal hostilities with Spain or France never materialized, but tensions with Britain increased for a number of reasons. Remini claims that Jackson saw the apparent slight as payback by the Madison administration for his support of Burr and Monroe. Meanwhile, the United States military repeatedly suffered devastating defeats on the battlefield.
On January 10, , Jackson led an army of 2, volunteers  to New Orleans to defend the region against British and Native American attacks. Lacking adequate provisions, Wilkinson ordered Jackson to halt in Natchez, then part of the Mississippi Territory , and await further orders. However, he also promised, instead of dismissing the troops without provisions in Natchez, to march them back to Nashville.
Many of the men had fallen ill. Jackson and his officers turned over their horses to the sick. In September, Jackson and his top cavalry officer, Brigadier General John Coffee , were involved in a street brawl with the Benton brothers.
Jackson was severely wounded by Jesse with a gunshot to the shoulder. On August 30, , a group of Muscogee also known as Creek Indians called the Red Sticks , so named for the color of their war paint, perpetrated the Fort Mims massacre.
During the massacre, hundreds of white American settlers and non-Red Stick Creeks were slaughtered. The resulting conflict became known as the Creek War. Jackson, with 2, men, was ordered to crush the hostile Indians. On October 10, he set out on the expedition, his arm still in a sling from fighting the Bentons.
Jackson established Fort Strother as a supply base. He sent Coffee with the cavalry which abandoned him back to Tennessee to secure more enlistments. Jackson decided to combine his force with that of the Georgia militia, and marched to meet the Georgia troops. From January 22—24, , while on their way, the Tennessee militia and allied Muscogee were attacked by the Red Sticks at the Battles of Emuckfaw and Enotachopo Creek. On March 27, enjoying an advantage of more than 2 to 1, he engaged them at the Battle of Horseshoe Bend.
An initial artillery barrage did little damage to the well-constructed fort. The treaty required the Muscogee, including those who had not joined the Red Sticks, to surrender 23 million acres 8,, ha of land to the United States.
Jackson accused the Spanish of arming the Red Sticks and of violating the terms of their neutrality by allowing British soldiers into the Floridas. The Spanish surrendered and the British fled. Weeks later, he learned that the British were planning an attack on New Orleans , which sat on the mouth of the Mississippi River and held immense strategic and commercial value. Jackson abandoned Pensacola to the Spanish, placed a force in Mobile, Alabama to guard against a possible invasion there, and rushed the rest of his force west to defend the city.
Jackson received some criticism for paying white and non-white volunteers the same salary. The approaching British force, led by Admiral Alexander Cochrane and later General Edward Pakenham , consisted of over 10, soldiers, many of whom had served in the Napoleonic Wars. The British arrived on the east bank of the Mississippi River on the morning of December That evening, Jackson attacked the British and temporarily drove them back. An initial artillery barrage by the British did little damage to the well-constructed American defenses.
Once the morning fog had cleared, the British launched a frontal assault, and their troops made easy targets for the Americans protected by their parapets. Despite managing to temporarily drive back the American right flank, the overall attack ended in disaster. Of these, 13 men were killed, 39 wounded, and 19 missing or captured. The British, however, admitted 2, casualties.
Of these, men were killed including Pakenham , 1, wounded, and missing or captured. Alexis de Tocqueville "underwhelmed" by Jackson according to a commentator later wrote in Democracy in America that Jackson "was raised to the Presidency, and has been maintained there, solely by the recollection of a victory which he gained, twenty years ago, under the walls of New Orleans. In March , after U. District Court Judge Dominic A. Civilian authorities in New Orleans had reason to fear Jackson—he summarily ordered the execution of six members of the militia who had attempted to leave.
Their deaths were not well publicized until the Coffin Handbills were circulated during his presidential campaign. Following the war, Jackson remained in command of Army forces on the southern border of the U. He conducted official business from the Hermitage. Several Native American tribes, which became known as the Seminole , straddled the border between the U. The Seminole, in alliance with escaped slaves, frequently raided Georgia settlements before retreating back into Florida.
These skirmishes continually escalated, and the conflict is now known as the First Seminole War. Jackson was also charged with preventing Spanish Florida from becoming a refuge for runaway slaves, after Spain promised freedom to fugitive slaves. Critics later alleged that Jackson exceeded orders in his Florida actions. His orders from President Monroe were to "terminate the conflict. Before departing, Jackson wrote to Monroe, "Let it be signified to me through any channel Jackson invaded Florida on March 15, , capturing Pensacola.
He crushed Seminole and Spanish resistance in the region and captured two British agents, Robert Ambrister and Alexander Arbuthnot , who had been working with the Seminole. After a brief trial, Jackson executed both of the men, causing a diplomatic incident with the British.
A congressional investigation exonerated Jackson, but Jackson was deeply angered by the criticism he received, particularly from Speaker of the House Henry Clay. In the spring of , Jackson suffered a physical breakdown. His body had two bullets lodged in it, and he had grown exhausted from years of hard military campaigning. He regularly coughed up blood, and his entire body shook. Jackson feared that he was on the brink of death. After several months of rest, he recovered.
He obsessed over rampant corruption in the Monroe administration and grew to detest the Second Bank of the United States , blaming it for causing the Panic of by contracting credit. The Panic of had devastated the fortunes of many, and banks and politicians seen as supportive of banks were particularly unpopular.
During the Era of Good Feelings , the Federalist Party had faded away, and all five presidential contenders were members of the Democratic-Republican Party. On the major issues of the day, most prominently the tariff , Jackson expressed centrist beliefs, and opponents accused him of obfuscating his positions. Jackson vowed to restore honesty in government and to scale back its excesses. The move was independently orchestrated by his advisors William Berkeley Lewis and U. Senator John Eaton in order to defeat incumbent John Williams , who openly opposed his presidential candidacy.
The legislature narrowly elected him. Democratic-Republican presidential nominees had historically been chosen by informal Congressional nominating caucuses , but this method had become unpopular. In , most of the Democratic-Republicans in Congress boycotted the caucus.
A Pennsylvania convention nominated Jackson for President a month later, stating that the irregular caucus ignored the "voice of the people" and was a "vain hope that the American people might be thus deceived into a belief that he [Crawford] was the regular democratic candidate. In the presidential election, Jackson won a plurality of the electoral vote , taking several southern and western states as well as the mid-Atlantic states of Pennsylvania and New Jersey.
He was the only candidate to win states outside of his regional base, as Adams dominated New England, Clay took three western states, and Crawford won Virginia and Georgia. Jackson won a plurality of the popular vote, taking 42 percent, although not all states held a popular vote for the presidency. He won 99 electoral votes, more than any other candidates, but still short of , which he needed for a true majority.
With no candidate having won a majority of the electoral, the House of Representatives held a contingent election under the terms of the Twelfth Amendment. The amendment specifies that only the top three electoral vote-winners are eligible to be elected by the House, so Clay was eliminated from contention.
However, Clay, who as Speaker of the House presided over the election, saw Jackson as a dangerous demagogue who might topple the republic in favor of his own leadership. Furious supporters of Jackson accused Clay and Adams of having reached a " corrupt bargain " after Adams appointed Clay as his Secretary of State. Almost immediately, opposition arose to the Adams presidency. Jackson was nominated for president by the Tennessee legislature in October , more than three years before the election.
Van Buren and other Jackson allies established numerous pro-Jackson newspapers and clubs around the country, while Jackson avoided campaigning but made himself available to visitors at his Hermitage plantation. In the election, Jackson won a commanding 56 percent of the popular vote and 68 percent of the electoral vote. The campaign was very much a personal one. As was the custom at the time, neither candidate personally campaigned, but their political followers organized many campaign events.
Both candidates were rhetorically attacked in the press. Jackson was strongly attacked as a slave trader , who bought and sold slaves and moved them about in defiance of higher standards of slaveholder behavior. Rachel Jackson was also a frequent target of attacks, and was widely accused of bigamy, a reference to the controversial situation of her marriage with Jackson. They also stated that Adams had a billiard table in the White House and that he had charged the government for it.
Rachel had been under extreme stress during the election, and often struggled while Jackson was away. She began experiencing significant physical stress during the election season.
Jackson described her symptoms as "excruciating pain in the left shoulder, arm, and breast. A distraught Jackson had to be pulled from her so the undertaker could prepare the body.
Rachel was buried at the Hermitage on Christmas Eve. Jackson took a moral tone, with the belief that agrarian sympathies, and a limited view of states rights and the federal government, would produce less corruption. When South Carolina opposed the tariff law, he took a strong line in favor of nationalism and against secession. Jackson believed in the ability of the people to "arrive at right conclusions. Jackson departed from the Hermitage on January 19 and arrived in Washington on February He then set about choosing his cabinet members.
Barry of Kentucky as Postmaster General. Therefore, Adams chose not to attend the inauguration. He also promised to pursue "reform" by removing power from "unfaithful or incompetent hands.
Thousands of spectators overwhelmed the White House staff, and minor damage was caused to fixtures and furnishings. Jackson devoted a considerable amount of his presidential time during his early years in office responding to what came to be known as the "Petticoat affair" or "Eaton affair. Calhoun, refused to socialize with the Eatons. Allowing a prostitute in the official family was unthinkable—but Jackson refused to believe the rumors, telling his Cabinet that "She is as chaste as a virgin!
Jackson was also reminded of the attacks that were made against his wife. These memories increased his dedication to defending Peggy Eaton. Meanwhile, the cabinet wives insisted that the interests and honor of all American women was at stake.
They believed a responsible woman should never accord a man sexual favors without the assurance that went with marriage. A woman who broke that code was dishonorable and unacceptable. He could now see his main chance to strike hard; he took the side of Jackson and Eaton. Van Buren himself resigned to avoid the appearance of bias.
Calhoun blocked the nomination with a tie-breaking vote against it, claiming the defeated nomination would " He will never kick, sir, never kick. The Kitchen Cabinet emerged as an unofficial group of advisors to the president.
Throughout his eight years in office, Jackson made about 70 treaties with Native American tribes both in the South and the Northwest. The northwest tribes include the Chippewa , Ottawa , and the Potawatomi. Relations between Indians and Americans increasingly grew tense and sometimes violent as a result of territorial conflicts. There had developed a growing popular and political movement to deal with the issue, and out of this policy to relocate certain Indian populations.
Jackson, never known for timidity, became an advocate for this relocation policy in what many historians consider the most controversial aspect of his presidency. The Act authorized the President to negotiate treaties to buy tribal lands in the east in exchange for lands farther west, outside of existing state borders.
Jackson, Eaton, and General Coffee negotiated with the Chickasaw, who quickly agreed to move. The tactics worked, and the chiefs agreed to move. The removal of the Choctaw took place in the winter of and , and was wrought with misery and suffering. In December , this dispute began the Second Seminole War. The war lasted over six years, finally ending in The state of Georgia became involved in a contentious dispute with the Cherokee, culminating in the Supreme Court decision in Worcester v.
In that decision, U. Supreme Court Chief Justice John Marshall , writing for the court, ruled that Georgia could not forbid whites from entering tribal lands, as it had attempted to do with two missionaries supposedly stirring up resistance amongst the tribespeople. Remini argues that Jackson did not say it because, while it "certainly sounds like Jackson Ridge was not a widely recognized leader of the Cherokee, and this document was rejected by some as illegitimate.
Subsequently, as many as 4, out of 18, Cherokees died on the " Trail of Tears " in In an effort to purge the government of corruption, Jackson launched presidential investigations into all executive Cabinet offices and departments. He believed appointees should be hired on merit and withdrew many candidates he believed were lax in their handling of monies. Jackson repeatedly called for the abolition of the Electoral College by constitutional amendment in his annual messages to Congress as President.
So important do I consider these changes in our fundamental law that I can not, in accordance with my sense of duty, omit to press them upon the consideration of a new Congress.
Jackson enforced the Tenure of Office Act , signed by President Monroe in , that limited appointed office tenure and authorized the president to remove and appoint political party associates.
Jackson believed that a rotation in office was actually a democratic reform preventing father-to-son succession of office and made civil service responsible to the popular will. Having appointed a soldier who had lost his leg fighting on the battlefield to a postmastership Jackson stated "If he lost his leg fighting for his country, that is Supervision of bureaus and departments whose operations were outside of Washington such as the New York Customs House; the Postal Service; the Departments of Navy and War; and the Bureau of Indian Affairs, whose budget had increased enormously in the previous two decades proved to be difficult.
In , Congress had approved the " Tariff of Abominations ", which set the tariff at an historically high rate. Southern planters, who sold their cotton on the world market, strongly opposed this tariff, which they saw as favoring northern interests. The South now had to pay more for goods it did not produce locally; and other countries would have more difficulty affording southern cotton. The South Carolina Exposition and Protest of , secretly written by Calhoun, asserted that their state had the right to "nullify"—declare void—the tariff legislation of Although Jackson sympathized with the South in the tariff debate, he also vigorously supported a strong union, with effective powers for the central government.
Jackson attempted to face down Calhoun over the issue, which developed into a bitter rivalry between the two men. One incident came at the April 13, , Jefferson Day dinner, involving after-dinner toasts. It must be preserved!
Calhoun clarified his position by responding "The Union: Next to our Liberty, the most dear! By February , the break between Calhoun and Jackson was final.
Responding to inaccurate press reports about the feud, Calhoun had published letters between him and Jackson detailing the conflict in the United States Telegraph. Jackson and Calhoun began an angry correspondence which lasted until Jackson stopped it in July. After it took the side of Calhoun, Jackson needed a new organ for the administration. He enlisted the help of longtime supporter Francis Preston Blair , who in November established a newspaper known as the Washington Globe , which from then on served as the primary mouthpiece of the Democratic Party.
Jackson supported a revision to tariff rates known as the Tariff of It was designed to placate the nullifiers by lowering tariff rates. It passed Congress on July 9 and was signed by the President on July However, the bill failed to satisfy extremists on either side. Navy warships to Charleston harbor, and threatened to hang any man who worked to support nullification or secession.
Senator for South Carolina. Hayne in the Senate, who would then become governor. Hayne had often struggled to defend nullification on the floor of the Senate, especially against fierce criticism from Senator Daniel Webster of Massachusetts.
In December , Jackson issued a resounding proclamation against the "nullifiers", stating that he considered "the power to annul a law of the United States, assumed by one State, incompatible with the existence of the Union, contradicted expressly by the letter of the Constitution, unauthorized by its spirit, inconsistent with every principle on which it was founded, and destructive of the great object for which it was formed.
Jackson also denied the right of secession: To say that any State may at pleasure secede from the Union is to say that the United States are not a nation.
Jackson asked Congress to pass a " Force Bill " explicitly authorizing the use of military force to enforce the tariff. It was introduced by Senator Felix Grundy of Tennessee, and was quickly attacked by Calhoun as "military despotism. A bill sponsored by the administration had been introduced by Representative Gulian C. Verplanck of New York, but it lowered rates more sharply than Clay and other protectionists desired. Calhoun, Clay, and several others marched out of the chamber in opposition, with the only dissenting vote coming from John Tyler of Virginia.
He signed both bills on March 2, starting with the Force Bill. The next pretext will be the negro, or slavery question. Addressing the subject of foreign affairs in his First Annual Address to Congress, Jackson declared it to be his "settled purpose to ask nothing that is not clearly right and to submit to nothing that is wrong. When Jackson took office, spoliation claims, or compensation demands for the capture of American ships and sailors, dating from the Napoleonic era , caused strained relations between the U.
The French Navy had captured and sent American ships to Spanish ports while holding their crews captive forcing them to labor without any charges or judicial rules. Rives , through diplomacy was able to convince the French government to sign a reparations treaty on July 4, , that would award the U.
In his December State of the Union address , Jackson sternly reprimanded the French government for non-payment, stating the federal government was "wholly disappointed" by the French, and demanded Congress authorize trade reprisals against France.
Jackson described in lengthy and minute detail the history of events surrounding the treaty and his belief that the French government was purposely stalling payment. In addition to France, the Jackson administration successfully settled spoliation claims with Denmark , Portugal , and Spain. In , the Texas Revolution began when pro-slavery American settlers in Texas fought the Mexican government for Texan independence. By May , they had routed the Mexican military, establishing an independent Republic of Texas.
The new Texas government legalized slavery and demanded recognition from President Jackson and annexation into the United States. However, Jackson was hesitant in recognizing Texas, unconvinced that the new republic could maintain independence from Mexico, and not wanting to make Texas an anti-slavery issue during the election.
The strategy worked; the Democratic Party and national loyalties were held intact, and Van Buren was elected President. The presidential election demonstrated the rapid development and organization of political parties during this time period. Clay was, like Jackson, a Mason, and so some anti-Jacksonians who would have supported the National Republican Party supported Wirt instead. Its stock was mostly held by foreigners, he insisted, and it exerted an unfair amount of control over the political system.
Jackson used the issue to promote his democratic values, believing the Bank was being run exclusively for the wealthy. Jackson stated the Bank made "the rich richer and the potent more powerful. Its only power would be to issue bills of exchange. Thomas Hart Benton, now a strong supporter of the President despite the brawl years earlier, gave a speech strongly denouncing the Bank and calling for open debate on its recharter. Webster led a motion to narrowly defeat the resolution. Shortly afterward, the Globe announced that Jackson would stand for reelection.
This would be done, in part, through the sale of government stock in the Bank. Over the objections of Attorney General Roger B. Taney , an irreconcilable opponent of the Bank, he allowed McLane to publish a Treasury Report which essentially recommended rechartering the Bank. Clay hoped to make the Bank an issue in the election, so as to accuse Jackson of going beyond his powers if he vetoed a recharter bill. He and Webster urged Biddle to immediately apply for recharter rather than wait to reach a compromise with the administration.
Many moderate Democrats, including McLane, were appalled by the perceived arrogance of the bill and supported his decision. Van Buren, is trying to kill me. But I will kill it. It attacked the Bank as an agent of inequality that supported only the wealthy.
Jackson won the election by a landslide, receiving 54 percent of the popular vote and electoral votes. Clay received 37 percent of the popular vote and 49 electoral votes.
Wirt received only eight percent of the popular vote and seven electoral votes while the Anti-Masonic Party eventually declined. In , Jackson attempted to begin removing federal deposits from the bank, whose money-lending functions were taken over by the legions of local and state banks that materialized across America, thus drastically increasing credit and speculation.
He replaced McLane with William J. Signalling his intent to continue battling the Bank, he replaced Duane with Taney. Intended to force Jackson into a compromise, the move backfired, increasing anti-Bank sentiment. The censure was a political maneuver spearheaded by Clay, which served only to perpetuate the animosity between him and Jackson. Polk , declared on April 4 that the Bank "out not to be rechartered" and that the depositions "ought not to be restored. Jackson called the passage of these resolutions a "glorious triumph.
Polk ran for Speaker of the House to replace Andrew Stevenson. The national economy following the withdrawal of the remaining funds from the Bank was booming and the federal government through duty revenues and sale of public lands was able to pay all bills. On January 1, , Jackson paid off the entire national debt, the only time in U. In , in response to increased land speculation, Jackson issued the Specie Circular , an executive order that required buyers of government lands to pay in "specie" gold or silver coins.
The result was high demand for specie, which many banks could not meet in exchange for their notes, contributing to the Panic of His destruction of the Second Bank of the United States had removed restrictions upon the inflationary practices of some state banks; wild speculation in lands, based on easy bank credit, had swept the West. To end this speculation, Jackson in had issued a Specie Circular The first recorded physical attack on a U.
He had ordered the dismissal of Robert B. Randolph from the navy for embezzlement. During a stopover near Alexandria , Randolph appeared and struck the President. Jackson declined to press charges. On January 30, , what is believed to be the first attempt to kill a sitting President of the United States occurred just outside the United States Capitol.
Davis , Richard Lawrence , an unemployed house painter from England, aimed a pistol at Jackson, which misfired. Lawrence then pulled out a second pistol, which also misfired.
Historians believe the humid weather contributed to the double misfiring. Lawrence offered a variety of explanations for the shooting. He blamed Jackson for the loss of his job. Afterwards, the pistols were tested and retested. Each time they performed perfectly. Many believed that Jackson had been protected by the same Providence that they believed also protected their young nation. The incident became a part of Jacksonian mythos.
Jackson initially suspected that a number of his political enemies might have orchestrated the attempt on his life. His suspicions were never proven.
During the summer of , Northern abolitionists began sending anti-slavery tracts through the postal system into the South. Jackson wanted sectional peace, and desired to placate Southerners ahead of the election. He supported the solution of Postmaster General Amos Kendall, which gave Southern postmasters discretionary powers to either send or detain the anti-slavery tracts. Jackson initially opposed any federal exploratory scientific expeditions during his first term in office.
Harriman on the Red River of the North. However, wanting to establish his presidential legacy, similar to Jefferson and the Lewis and Clark Expedition , Jackson finally sponsored scientific exploration during his second term. Dickerson however proved unfit for the task, preparations stalled and the expedition was not launched until , during the presidency of Van Buren.
Two other Jacksonian acts in contributed to the Panic of As a result, the U. Both were confirmed by the new Senate. Sandford largely overshadows his career. Arkansas June 15,  and Michigan January 26, In , after serving two terms as president, Jackson was replaced by his chosen successor Martin Van Buren and retired to the Hermitage.
He immediately began putting it in order as it had been poorly managed in his absence by his adopted son, Andrew Jr. Although he suffered ill health, Jackson remained highly influential in both national and state politics. Jackson continued to denounce the "perfidy and treachery" of banks and urged his successor, Van Buren, to repudiate the Specie Circular as president.
As a solution to the panic, he supported an Independent Treasury system, which was designed to hold the money balances of the government in the form of gold or silver and would be restricted from printing paper money so as to prevent further inflation. During the delay, no effective remedy had been implemented for the depression. Van Buren grew deeply unpopular. Jackson campaigned heavily for Van Buren in Tennessee. However, no nominee was chosen, and the party chose to leave the decision up to individual state electors.
Harrison won the election, and the Whigs captured majorities in both houses of Congress. Jackson was encouraged because Tyler had a strong independent streak and was not bound by party lines.
Jackson strongly favored the annexation of Texas , a feat he had been unable to accomplish during his own presidency. While Jackson still feared that annexation would stir up anti-slavery sentiment, his belief that the British would use Texas as a base to threaten the United States overrode his other concerns. Walker of Mississippi, acting on behalf of the Tyler administration, which also supported annexation, Jackson wrote several letters to Texas President Sam Houston , urging him to wait for the Senate to approve annexation and lecturing him on how much being a part of the United States would benefit Texas.
A treaty of annexation was signed by Tyler on April 12, , and submitted to the Senate. When a letter from Calhoun to British Ambassador Richard Pakenham linking annexation to slavery was made public, anti-annexation sentiment exploded in the North and the bill failed to be ratified. Van Buren decided to write the "Hamlet letter", opposing annexation. This effectively extinguished any support that Van Buren might previously have enjoyed in the South.
If the plan failed, Jackson warned, Texas would not join the Union and would potentially fall victim to a Mexican invasion supported by the British. He then pointed directly at a startled Polk, telling him that, as a man from the southwest and a supporter of annexation, he would be the perfect candidate. Polk called the scheme "utterly abortive", but agreed to go along with it. Dallas was selected for vice president. Jackson convinced Tyler to drop his plans of running for re-election as an independent by promising, as Tyler requested, to welcome the president and his allies back into the Democratic Party and by instructing Blair to stop criticizing the president.
Jackson died at his plantation on June 8, , at the age of 78, of chronic dropsy and heart failure. When the messenger finally came, the old soldier, patriot and Christian was looking out for his approach. He is gone, but his memory lives, and will continue to live. Jackson had three adopted sons: Theodore, an Indian about whom little is known,  Andrew Jackson Jr. Lyncoya died of tuberculosis on July 1, , at the age of sixteen. The Jacksons also acted as guardians for eight other children.
They came to live with the Jacksons after the death of their father. The relationship between the President and Emily became strained during the Petticoat affair, and the two became estranged for over a year. They eventually reconciled and she resumed her duties as White House hostess. It was the only time in history when two women simultaneously acted as unofficial First Lady. Sarah took over all hostess duties after Emily died from tuberculosis in Jackson used Rip Raps as a retreat.
Brands notes that his opponents were terrified of his temper: His close associates all had stories of his blood-curdling oaths, his summoning of the Almighty to loose His wrath upon some miscreant, typically followed by his own vow to hang the villain or blow him to perdition.
Given his record—in duels, brawls, mutiny trials, and summary hearings—listeners had to take his vows seriously. On the last day of the presidency, Jackson admitted that he had but two regrets, that he "had been unable to shoot Henry Clay or to hang John C. Jackson also had an unruly shock of red hair, which had completely grayed by the time he became president at age He had penetrating deep blue eyes. Jackson was one of the more sickly presidents, suffering from chronic headaches, abdominal pains, and a hacking cough.
Much of his trouble was caused by a musket ball in his lung that was never removed, that often brought up blood and sometimes made his whole body shake. Jackson was a Freemason , initiated at Harmony Lodge No. He was the only U. His Masonic apron is on display in the Tennessee State Museum. An obelisk and bronze Masonic plaque decorate his tomb at the Hermitage. Jackson remains one of the most studied and controversial figures in American history.
He has been lauded as the champion of the common man, while criticized for his treatment of Indians and for other matters. Andrew Jackson, I am given to understand, was a patriot and a traitor. He was one of the greatest generals, and wholly ignorant of the art of war. A brilliant writer, elegant, eloquent, without being able to compose a correct sentence or spell words of four syllables. The first of statesmen, he never devised, he never framed, a measure.
He was the most candid of men, and was capable of the most profound dissimulation. A most law-defying law-obeying citizen. A stickler for discipline, he never hesitated to disobey his superior. Jackson was criticized by his contemporary Alexis de Tocqueville in Democracy in America for flattering the dominant ideas of his time, including the mistrust over the federal power, for sometimes enforcing his view by force and disrespect towards the institutions and the law:.
Far from wishing to extend the Federal power, the President belongs to the party which is desirous of limiting that power to the clear and precise letter of the Constitution, and which never puts a construction upon that act favorable to the government of the Union; far from standing forth as the champion of centralization, General Jackson is the agent of the state jealousies; and he was placed in his lofty station by the passions that are most opposed to the central government.
It is by perpetually flattering these passions that he maintains his station and his popularity. General Jackson is the slave of the majority: General Jackson stoops to gain the favor of the majority; but when he feels that his popularity is secure, he overthrows all obstacles in the pursuit of the objects which the community approves or of those which it does not regard with jealousy.
Supported by a power that his predecessors never had, he tramples on his personal enemies, whenever they cross his path, with a facility without example; he takes upon himself the responsibility of measures that no one before him would have ventured to attempt. He even treats the national representatives with a disdain approaching to insult; he puts his veto on the laws of Congress and frequently neglects even to reply to that powerful body.
He is a favorite who sometimes treats his master roughly. In the 20th century, Jackson was written about by many admirers. Remini paints a generally favorable portrait of Jackson.
