  • Domestic/Foreign Issue
  • "The brave man inattentive to his duty, is worth little more to his country, than the coward who deserts her in the hour of danger." Andrew Jackson meant that if soldiers commit a minor offence they are seen as no different than a traitor.
  • Fun Facts
  • Late in Jackson's presidency, however, an unseemly dispute with France nearly brought the two nations to the brink of war. In an 1831 treaty, France agreed to pay claims for Napoleonic depredations on American shipping. Nevertheless, the French Chamber of Deputies refused to appropriate the necessary funds. Jackson finally lost patience and asked Congress to authorize reprisals if the money was not paid. The French government then demanded retraction of this insult as a condition of payment. Jackson responded in effect that what he said to Congress was none of a foreign government's business. 
  • Jackson's chosen agent, Anthony Butler, possessed neither of those qualities, and Jackson's own careless instructions encouraged Butler's clumsy dabbling in the diplomatic underworld of bribery and personal influence. His machinations, combined with the flow of American settlers into Texas, aroused Mexican apprehensions of American designs there. In 1835, American emigrants to Texas, led by Jackson's old Tennessee comrade Sam Houston, mounted a successful revolt against Mexico and declared their independence.
  • 1.) Jackson was the first president to ride on a train 2.) Andrew Jackson was renowned for winning over 700 duels and surviving the only 2 that he failed 3.) Andrew Jackson  survived an assassination attempt and beat the assassin almost to death with a cane
