A portrait of Major General Andrew Jackson (1767-1845), ca. 1812. Jackson was a lawyer by education, and became one of the wealthiest men in Tennessee. During the War of 1812, he led 2,000 white men against the Creek Indians. He famously defended the city of New Orleans from British attack in 1815, and also contributed to expanding the borders of the United States during the war. He eventually won the U.S. presidency in 1828, an election which ushered in an age of "Jacksonian Democracy."
