in the University of Glasgow.

Jack'son, (ANDREW,) a celebrated American general
and statesman, born in the Waxhaw settlement, North
or South Carolina, on the 151(1 of March, 1767. Parton
states that he was born in Union county, North Caro-
lina, but adds that " General Jackson always supposed
himself to be a native of South Carolina," for in his
proclamation to the nullifiers of South Carolina he thus
addresses them : " Fellow-citizens of my native State."
He was a son of Andrew Jackson, an Irishman, who
emigrated to America in 1765 and died poor in 1767.
The name of his mother was Elizabeth Hutchinson. We
have little definite information about the schools that he
attended. According to Parton, " he learned to read, to
write, and cast accounts ; little more. . . . He was never
a well-informed man." Having taken arms against the
British in 1781, he was captured, and afterwards wounded
by an officer because he refused to clean his boots.
About 1785 he began to study law at Salisbury, North
Carolina. He was addicted in his youth to gambling,
horse-racing, and other sports. He was an excellent
horseman, " a capital shot," was very dignified in man-
ner, and was distinguished for his courage and activity.
His stature was six feet and one inch high.

In 1788 he removed to Nashville, Tennessee, where
he began to practise law. He speedily obtained a large
practice, of which disputed land-claims formed the prin-
cipal subject. About 1792 he married Rachel Robards,
originally Rachel Donelson, whose first husband was
living and had taken preliminary measures to obtain
a divorce, which was legally completed in 1793. The
marriage ceremony was again performed in 1794. Jack-



son, following a custom then extremely common in the
South and West, fought a number of duels in the early
part of his life. He was a member of the Convention
which framed the Constitution of Tennessee in 0796, and
in the autumn of that year was elected representative to
Congress by the people of Tennessee, which was then
entitled to only one member. He supported Thomas
Jefferson in the Presidential election of 1796. In 1797
he became a Senator of the United States for Tennessee.
He resigned his seat in the Senate in 1798, "partly be-
cause he felt himself out of place in so slow and digni-
fied a body, but chiefly for pecuniary reasons." He was
a judge of the supreme court of Tennessee from 1798 to
1804. In 1806 he challenged and killed Charles Dick-
inson in a duel with pistols, receiving himself a severe
wound. This affair impaired for many years his popu-
larity in Tennessee and other parts of the United States.

In 1807, while the trial of Aaron Burr was still unde-
termined, Jackson "harangued the crowd, [at Richmond,]
defending Burr, and angrily denouncing Jefferson as a
persecutor." (Parton's " Life.") After war had been
declared against Great Britain, General Jackson (who
several years before had been appointed major-general
of militia) offered his services, and those of 2500 volun-
teers, in June, 1812. He was ordered to New Orleans,
and led a body of 2070 men in that direction ; but at
Natchez he received an order dated February 6, 1813, by
which his troops were dismissed from public service. In
September, 1813, he had an affray with Colonel Thomas
H. Benton at Nashville, and was severely wounded by his
brother, Jesse Benton. In October next he took the field
against the Creek Indians, whom he defeated at Talla-
dega in November. By his services in this Creek war,
which ended in 1814, he acquired great popularity, and
in May, 1814, he was appointed a major-general in the
regular army. He was soon after ordered to the Gulf
of Mexico, to oppose an expected invasion of the British.
In November he seized Pensacola, which belonged to
Spain but was used by the British as a base of operations.
About the 1st of December he moved his army to New
Orleans, which was then ill prepared for defence. The
British fleet, conveying an army of veterans who had
fought under Wellington, entered Lake Borgne Decem-
ber 13, and captured several gunboats. General Jackson
proclaimed martial law in the city on the i6th. On the
23d the enemy advanced to a point about nine miles be-
low the city, and were attacked in the night by General
Jackson, who had about 2100 men. The result of this
action was favourable to the defenders of the city, who
gained time to fortify their position. On the 25th of
December Sir Edward Pakenham arrived and took com-
mand of the invaders, whose number was about 12,000.
Jackson, who had a much smaller army, composed partly
of the unerring marksmen of Tennessee and Kentucky,
repulsed an attack on the 1st of January, 1815. On the
8th of January the British made a general assault on the
American lines, but were defeated with great loss by
the deadly fire of the riflemen and artillery. Generals
Pakenham and Gibbs were killed. " Seven hundred
killed," says Parton, " fourteen hundred wounded, and
five hundred prisoners, were the dread result of that
twenty-five minutes' work. Jackson's loss was eight
killed and thirteen wounded." The victory of New
Orleans, which was one of the most brilliant and de-
cisive ever gained by an American army, raised Jackson's
reputation as a general to the highest point, and made
him the idol of a large portion of the American people.
This was the last battle of the war, a treaty of peace
having been signed in Europe in December, 1814.

In March, 1815, while that city was still under mar-
tial law, Judge Hall, of New Orleans, granted a writ of
habeas corpus for the release of Mr. Louaillier, who had
been arrested by order of Jackson, for exciting discontent
among the troops. The latter, instead of obeying the
writ, had the judge arrested and kept in custody. Peace
having been formally proclaimed, Hall was set at liberty.
General Jackson was then summoned to answer for con-
tempt of court. He was found guilty, and sentenced to
pay a fine of one thousand dollars. He immediately
paid the fine ; but it was afterwards refunded with the
interest by an act of Congress passed in February, 1844.

JACKSON



In 1817-18 he waged a successful war against the
Seminoles in Florida, seized Pensacola, and executed
Arbuthnot and Ambrister, two British subjects, accused
of inciting the savages to hostile acts against the Ameri-
cans. He was appointed Governor of Florida in 1821.
Before this date he had built, near Nashville, a mansion
called the " Hermitage," in which he resided many years.
In 1823 he was elected a Senator of the United States,
and nominated as candidate for the Presidency by the
legislature of Tennessee. His competitors were John
Quincy Adams, Henry Clay, and William H. Crawford.
Jackson received ninety-nine electoral votes, Adams
eighty-four, Crawford forty-one, and Clay thirty-seven.
As no candidate had a majority, the election devolved
on the House of Representatives, voting by States, each
State having one vote. Through the influence of Mr.
Clay, John Quincy Adams was elected, by the vote of
thirteen States. General Jackson, who received the
vote of seven States, became the implacable enemy of
Mr. Clay, whom he stigmatized as " this Judas of the
West." He habitually attributed the conduct of his
political opponents to mean or improper motives, and,
accordingly, hated Crawford, Clay, Adams, and Calhoun,

In 1828 he was elected President, receiving one hun-
dred and seventy-eight electoral votes, while Mr. Adams
received eighty-three. Calhoun became Vice-PresidenL,
Martin Van Buren was appointed secretary of state.
Jackson was the first President who proscribed public
servants for political opinions. He made more removals
in one year than all the other Presidents in forty years
before. At a banquet in April, 1830, the President gave
thij famous toast: "Our Federal Union: it must be
preserved." In April, 1831, he reorganized his cabinet,
appointing Edward Livingston secretary of state, Louis
McLane secretary of the treasury, Lewis Cass secretary
of war, Levi Woodbury secretary of the navy, and Roger
B. Taney attorney-general.

Among the principal events of his first term was his
veto of the bill which granted anew charter to the Bank
of the United States, (July, 1832.) This subject became
the chief issue between the partisans of Jackson and his
opponents, who supported Henry Clay in the Presiden-
tial election of 1832. General Jackson was re-elected,
receiving two hundred and nineteen electoral votes out
of two hundred and eighty-eight, which was the whole
number, and Martin Van Buren succeeded Calhoun in
the Vice-Presidency. In November, 1832, a Convention
in South Carolina adopted an ordinance of nullification,
by which they ordained that the tariff-law of 1828 " is
null and void." The President electrified the country
by his memorable proclamation against the nullifiers,
December II, 1832, in which he announced his resolu-
tion to crush any disunion movement with the strong
hand. He was censured by the Senate for removing
the public deposits from the Bank of the United States,
September, 1833.

He used his influence to procure the election of Mar-
tin Van Buren to the Presidency in 1836, and retired
finally from public life March 4, 1837. He afterwards
joined the Presbyterian Church. In his last illness Dr.
Edgar asked "what he would have done with Calhoun
and the other nullifiers if they had kept on." " Hung
them, sir, as high as Haman," was his reply. He
died, without issue, at the Hermitage, on the 8th of
June, 1845.

Jackaon, (THOMAS JONATHAN,) commonly known bj
the name of STONEWALL JACKSON, a distinguished Amer-
ican general, born in Lewis county, Virginia, January 21,
1824, graduated at West Point in 1846, standing seven-
teenth in a class of fifty-nine. He was considered at
West Point to be rather a dull and slow student. In the
Mexican war (1846-47) he served as first lieutenant with
distinction. Having resigned his commission in 1852,
he became a professor in the Military Institute at Lex-
ington, Virginia. About 1853 he married Miss Junkin,
a daughter of Dr. Junkin, of Lexington. He was ap-
pointed a colonel of the Virginian troops in April, 1861,
and commanded the force that was attacked by the Union
army at Martinsburg, July 2. He served as brigadier-
general at the battle of Bull Run, July 21, 1861, and was
promoted to the rank of major-general in the following
September. It has been currently stated that he received
his surname from the fact that he and his men " stood like
a stone wall" at the battle of Bull Run ; but, according to
one of his biographers, the name " Stonewall" was first
applied to his brigade because it was recruited in a stone-
wall country, the counties of Jefferson, Page, Frederick,
etc. He was defeated by General Shields near Win-
chester, March 23, 1862, and retreated up the valley to
Harrisonburg, pursued by General Banks. Having been
reinforced, he resumed the offensive with about twenty
thousand men, attacked General Banks near Strasburg,
May 23, and drove him back to the Potomac. On the
approach of General Fremont from the west, General
Jackson moved hastily up the valley to Harrisonburg.
His army was overtaken by General Fremont at Cross
Keys, where an indecisive battle was fought on the 8th
of June. Before the end of June he moved his army
to Richmond and joined that of General Lee. He
commanded a corps at the battle of Gaines's Mill, June



'\ 27, and at that of Malvern Hill, July i, 1862. On the
1 9th of August he defeated a small army under General
Banks at Cedar Mountain, Virginia. He captured
Harper's Ferry, with eleven thousand Union prisoners,
on the I5th of September, and joined General Lee in
time to take part in the battle of Antietam, September
17. He contributed to the victory at Fredericksburg,
December 13, 1862, for which service he was promoted
to the rank of lieutenant-general. He remained inactive
for several months, (January-April, 1863,) employed
partly in preparing official reports. On the 1st of May
he was ordered by General Lee to execute a flank move-
ment on the right wing of General Hooker's army. He
surprised and routed the eleventh corps, near Cnancel-
lorsville, on the evening of the 2d of May. As he was
riding with his staff from the front towards the rear
during that battle, he received a volley from his own
men, who in the darkness mistook the staff for a party
of Federal cavalry. General Jackson received three
wounds, of which he died at Guinea's Station on the
loth of May, 1863. " His loss," says Mr. Greeley, " was
the greatest yet sustained by either party in the fall of a
single man ; though Sidney Johnston had probably mili-
tary talents of a higher order. But Jackson's power over
his men was unequalled ; and it was justified by the
soundness of his judgment, as well as the intrepidity of
his character. Contrary to the vulgar notion, his attacks
were all well considered, and based on a careful cal-
culation of forces ; and he showed as high qualities in
refusing to squander his men at Antietam, and again at
Fredericksburg, as he did in his most brilliant charges.
... It is doubtful if all the advantages, including pres-
tige, which the rebels gained around Chancellorsville,
were not dearly purchased by the loss of Thomas J.
Jackson." ("American Conflict," vol. ii. pp. 359-60.)
Stonewall Jackson was a man of deep and earnest re-
ligious convictions ; and in his general character, as well
as in his serene, indomitable courage and the extraoi-
dinary influence which he exerted over the minds of his
soldiers, he reminds us of the great Puritan leaders who
fought under Cromwell.
