Andrew Jackson, our 7th President was an aggressive and tough general/politician with a stubborn macho personality.
He was a wealthy slave owner but he consistently supported the agenda of the common man and his protection of popular democracy and individual liberty.
In 1828, Jackson supported  a small limited government and he dismantled the Bank of the US.
Even though he was a slave holder, he told the southern states that they do NOT have the right to nullify Federal law  (which ultimately was a major cause of the Civil War).
He was a general which fought Indian Tribes and caused them untold grief, but he also personally adopted an indian orphan boy.
Truly he was an enigma President.
