Andrew Jackson was the seventh President of the United States, serving from 1829 to 1837. He was a strong leader who sought to expand the power of the presidency and reduce the influence of the Supreme Court and Congress. Jackson was a controversial figure who oversaw the forced relocation of thousands of Native Americans from their ancestral lands to Indian Territory (present-day Oklahoma), leading to the deaths of thousands of people on the Trail of Tears. Despite his controversial policies, Jackson remains a significant figure in American history and is often remembered for his commitment to democracy and his efforts to expand the rights of ordinary Americans.
