Andrew Jackson (nicknamed “Old Hickory”) served the United States as its 7th President. His two terms in office ran from 1829-1837.
Here are some interesting facts about Andrew Jackson:
- Born: March 15, 1767 in South Carolina
- Died: June 8, 1845 in Tennessee
- Founder of the Democratic Party
- Occupations of lawyer and soldier
Jackson was a war hero during the War of 1812. His leadership insured American victory over the British in the Battle of New Orleans in 1815. He was elected as Tennessee’s first U.S. Representative in 1796.
Located about 10 miles outside of Nashville, Tennessee was Jackson’s estate called The Hermitage. It served as his home from 1804 until his death in 1845. One of its main characteristics was its Greek Revival architecture.

Answer to Brain Teaser Question
LIGHTS, CAMERA, ACTION
Reblogged this on Disablities & Mental Health Issues.
‘Camera’ and ‘action’ jumped right out at me. At that point, no effort at all was needed to unscramble the first word. It’s interesting how deeply into our culture that phase has embedded itself, even in areas that have nothing at all to do with the film industry.
Got the brain teaser…thanks for making an easier one this time. Good facts about Jackson and The Hermitage.
I was just talkigng to my wife about him!
