Although there are many historians who would love to contradict Jefferson and several parts of the declaration, there is a strong statement of democracy, human equality, and freedom throughout the document.

As a teenager, Jackson had already suffered through the deaths of his mother, father, two brothers, and also spent time as a prisoner of the British during the Revolution (Hollitz, 194-95). It’s a miracle that Jackson even made it to his adulthood, let alone to lead a democratic movement to the top of American politics. Given the choice, we would never want anyone to go through a torturous childhood like Jackson did. Nevertheless, his childhood experiences helped him mold into exactly the type of person the democrats needed. In the 18th century, the common man of America needed someone in politics who they could relate to.
