Andrew Jackson: A Man of the People Andrew Jackson during his presidency faced hard and trying issues that put him and his beliefs to the test. He had to try to make the proper decision not only for his close friends and family, but for an entire nation. Topics like slavery, Indian removal, bank control, Industrialization, and the preservation of the Union, that if not handled properly, could result in civil war, or the division of the country. Andrew Jackson, despite the effects and biases of some of his decisions, was truly a great transformative leader during the early stages of the United States based on his incredible ability to keep expand the country, industrialize the nation, and giving more power to the common man.

An American Hero, to me, is a citizen of the United States, whom tries and succeeds immensely in helping the country to succeed in its quest to become one of the most, if the most, powerful countries in the known world. No matter what sacrifices they must make. This is my own definition based on a mixture of Hero, which is: “A man of distinguished courage or ability; admired for his brave deeds and noble qualities,” (Dictionary 1). You must also take the basic definition of American, which is a more obvious definition, meaning simply: “A Citizen, of the United States of America,” (Dictionary 2).

His mother died when he was just seven years old, and his aunt was severely beaten in front of him and that moment was burned into his brain and that image lasted in his memory for the rest of his life, shortly after he was sent to live with his master’s brother. Douglas was encouraged to read first by his master’s wife, but her husband felt differently, and said these words “learning would spoil the best nigger in the world” (140).
Abraham Lincoln Born near Hodgenville, Kentucky. on February 12, 1809, Lincoln was the central figure of the Civil War, and is regarded by many historians and laymen as not only the foremost of our presidents but also the greatest American of all time. With scant formal education, from a poor family, this frontier lawyer held the nation together through the worst crisis in its history. A leader of weaker will or fainter vision might well have failed either to win the Civil War or end the institution of slavery. With good reason, he is viewed as the savior of the American union and the "Great Emancipator."
