President Andrew Jackson
Angel for the "COMMON MAN" (by Michael Tran and Abhi)
The revolutionary war ended his childhood and the rest of his family died. He taught school a little, and then read law in North Carolina. After admission to the bar in 1787, he accepted an offer to serve as public prosecutor in the new Mero District of North Carolina. At mid-life, Jackson's political career had apparently reached an end. He thirsted not for higher office but for military action.
