Andrew Jackson

Today I just read a short biography about Andrew Jackson.

He was born in 1767 in the Waxhaw region – which is near where I was born, Charlotte, NC.

Andrew joined the army during the Revolutionary War when he was only 13.

His Dad died before he was born, and the rest of his family died during the War.

Even though he was an orphan he went on to do many great things.

And he became the 7th President of the United States.

He’s my father’s favorite President!
