There is no particular order to my posts.
07. Andrew Jackson
The country's 7th president was born in the Carolinas in 1767, but now stands at the corner of Mt. Rushmore Rd. & Main St. Jackson started studying law in his late teens, became a lawyer in Tennessee and was eventually the first man elected from Tennessee to the House of Representatives. He was also a major general in the War of 1812, becoming a national hero for defeating the British at New Orleans. Jackson also served in the 1st Seminole War and he survived an assassination attempt. He is lauded as the first "citizen-president" and is often acknowledged for representing the common man. Because of his strong character and notable military background, Jackson is shown in military garb with his arms firmly crossed.
