Like Present, Like Past
Andrew Jackson was born on March 15, 1767. He was born without a father. Heonly had his mother and his 3 brothers. He became a soldier at a very young age. But, he was taken prissoner by a British prison ship. After his mom saved him she died a few months later along with his brothers who died in the war. He was all alone and decided to become a teacher. He then decided to study law. In 1791 he got married to Rachel Robards. Rachel was married but separated from her former husband Lewis Robards. Someone told hm that he would become a good president if he ran and that started his career. The first time he won for president he didn’t win. But, the second time he did win and became the seventh president.
I believe that he wouldn’t be a very good president because he was raised mostly by himself and when making decisions he would only think of himself and not the rest of the community. His first day in office he threw a huge party and invited everyone. The White House was a mess and he had to sleep somewhere else. These would most likely be common and not much work would be finished.
