Andrew Jackson's Principals And Supremacy Of The Federal Government

872 words - 4 pages

After dominating the election of 1828, and securing his rightful presidency from John Quincy Adams, Andrew Jackson entered office, to be known as ‘the champion of the common man.’ Highly esteemed for his humble, and somewhat impecunious beginnings, Jackson worked his way up to become general, bring the United States to triumph in the Battle of New Orleans, and, although delayed, become the seventh president of the United States.
