Andrew Jackson

Andrew Jackson referred to a charge that his "Mother ... held to public scorn as a prostitute who intermarried with a Negro, and ... eldest brother sold as a slave in Carolina." Less specific was a rumor of Jackson having "colored blood", meaning having "Negro" ancestry; this was unproven. President Jackson's father was born in Carrickfergus, County Antrim, in current-day Northern Ireland, around 1738. Scholars Hendrik Booraem, Robert Remini, and H. W. Brands are agreed he had no black ancestors.

Famous quotes by andrew jackson:

    Private property is held sacred in all good governments, and particularly in our own. Yet shall the fear of invading it prevent a general from marching his army over a cornfield or burning a house which protects the enemy? A thousand other instances might be cited to show that laws must sometimes be silent when necessity speaks.
    Andrew Jackson (1767–1845)

    The planter, the farmer, the mechanic, and the laborer ... form the great body of the people of the United States, they are the bone and sinew of the country—men who love liberty and desire nothing but equal rights and equal laws.
    Andrew Jackson (1767–1845)

    Our Union, it must be preserved.
    Andrew Jackson (1767–1845)

    In a country where offices are created solely for the benefit of the people no one man has any more intrinsic right to official station than another.
    Andrew Jackson (1767–1845)

    My political enemies I can freely forgive; but as for who abused me when I was serving my country in the field, and those who attacked me for serving my country—Doctor, that is a different case.
    Andrew Jackson (1767–1845)
