Nice story. I will add though that often it is easy for us to look back in hindsight and judge people for their actions in an earlier time in history. It is true that Jackson was a slave holder, an Indian killer, etc., etc. just as it is true that every president, perhaps with the exception of Jimmy Carter, all have other men's blood on their hands. However, although by modern standards, these are totally heinous, unacceptable behaviors, in Jackson's day, his lifestyle, like that lead by many others of his time, was the general norm. What I would find interesting is if Jackson were to somehow be teleported into the future that we currently live in, how he would judge his countrymen for the vast empire that we have built around the world meddling in other countries affairs, how we are currently fighting 7 wars simultaneously, how we have created a huge welfare class totally dependent on government handouts, provided by an Unconstitutional personal income tax system, unsustainable debt created by a out of control private central banking system, which he personally took a bullet for trying to defend the country against, and how our socialist-leaning government system has literally replaced our once great Constitutional Federal Republic! I suspect Old Hickey would be so upset by what he'd found today, he would personally organize another revolution. Jackson was a man's man and a true patriot who believed in individual freedom and liberty. We need more like him today, strike the slavery and the Indian killing of course!
