The United States president preserves, protects, and defends the U.S. Constitution. Each president's term influences events in America and around the world for years to come. This biography introduces young readers to the life of Andrew Jackson, beginning with his childhood in the Waxhaw settlement in South Carolina. Information about Jackson's early career as a lawyer is discussed. In addition, his family and personal life, as well as his retirement years at the Hermitage, is highlighted. Easy-to-read text details Jackson's military service in the American Revolution, during which he was a British prisoner, in the War of 1812, during which "Old Hickory" won the Battle of New Orleans, and in the First Seminole War, as well as his political career as a participant in the convention to write the Tennessee state constitution, the first Tennessee congressman in the U.S. House of Representatives, a member of the U.S. Senate, a Tennessee Supreme Court judge, and military governor of Florida. Finally, students will explore key events from Democratic president Jackson's administration, including the Indian Removal Act, the Ordinance of Nullification, his opposition to the Bank of the United States, and his censure by the U.S. Senate. Beautiful graphics showcase the primary source documents and photographs. A timeline, fast facts, and sidebars help put essential information at students' fingertips. In addition, a quick-reference chart provides easy access to facts about every U.S. president. Checkerboard Library is an imprint of ABDO Publishing Company.
