Andrew Jackson (March 15th, 1767 – June 8th, 1845) was the 7th President of the United States.

He cared for others and was responsible for many good things, including expanding America's territory (including the state of Florida), introducing the Tariff Act in 1832, and providing the people with laws they wanted rather than leaving everything up to Congress.

But ultimately his presidency and reputation was shaded by his Indian Removal Act, which killed around 60,000 Cherokee alone, and involved the Trail of Tears.

He also invaded South Carolina when the state opposed his Tariff act, forcing them to compromise.
