Jackson's Scotch-Irish parents, Andrew and Elizabeth Hutchinson Jackson, emigrated to America from northern Ireland in 1765. At this time they had two sons, Hugh and Robert. The elder Jackson took up farming in the backwoods Waxhaw settlement on the border between North and South Carolina. He died in 1767. A few days later, on March 15, Andrew was born. The widow Jackson moved her family into the home of a nearby relative, James Crawford, where Andrew spent his boyhood. He attended frontier schools and acquired the reputation of being fiery-tempered and willing to fight all comers. He also learned to read, and he was often called on by the community to read aloud the news from the Philadelphia papers.
He never attended college.

Answer More than any of his predecessors, Jackson exercised executive authority to implement his policies and thwart the opposition. He vetoed a dozen bill…s, more than had all previous presidents combined, and was the first chief executive to exercise the pocket veto, by which a bill passed within 10 days (excluding Sundays) before Congress adjourns does not become law if the president does not sign it. He grew powerful in office through effective use of the spoils system, domination of the party convention, and appeals to the common people. He was a founder of the modern presidency.
Answer Without doubt, Jackson favored the removal of American Indians to lands west of the Mississippi River, some will contend that he was inclined to do so in …an effort to preserve the Indian culture. Others contend that his support of Indian Removal was an act of predjudice. There is also the opinion that financial consideration was involved in his policy. In any case, his policy carried on beyond his term of office,
Jackson was born on the western frontier of the Carolinas, an area that was in dispute between North Carolina and South Carolina, and both states have claimed him as a native …son. Jackson maintained that he was born in South Carolina, and the weight of evidence supports his assertion. The area offered little opportunity for formal education, and what schooling he received was interrupted by the British invasion of the western Carolinas in 1780-81. In the latter year he was captured by the British. Shortly after being imprisoned, he refused to shine the boots of a British officer and was struck across the face with a sabre. His mother and two brothers died during the closing years of the war, direct or indirect casualties of the invasion of the Carolinas. This sequence of tragic experiences fixed in Jackson's mind a lifelong hostility toward Great Britain. After the end of the American Revolution, he studied law in an office in Salisbury, North Carolina, and was admitted to the bar of that state in 1787. In 1788 he went to the Cumberland region as prosecuting attorney of the western district of North Carolina-the region west of the Appalachians, soon to become the state of Tennessee.
The Jacksons had three children, all adopted. Andrew Jackson Jr was born to Andrew Jackson's brother Severn and Severn Jackson's wife, Elizabeth Rucker Donelson, but his twin… brother, Thomas Jefferson Donelson, remained with his natural parents. On the frontier battlefield, Andrew Jackson found a young Indian boy whose parents had been killed, and had the child delivered to his home, where he was named Lyncoya and raised as a son. Another child, Andrew Jackson Hutchings, the orphaned grand niece of Rachel Jackson, was taken in and raised by the Jacksons from the age of five. The Jacksons also served as guardians for several other children, which under the customs of the day meant that the Jacksons provided for the financial welfare of these children, who were mostly cousins, nieces, and nephews, but they did not live with the Jacksons. One nephew who did live with them was Andrew Jackson Donelson, later to be Millard Fillmore's running mate on the American Party ticket in 1856

It was in the area where he grew up, the Waxhaw settlement located on the borders of North and South Carolina.
Andrew Jackson did not like school. In fact, he droped out very early. He was a sucsessful lawyer, even though he did not go to law school. He did study under a very notable l…awyer at the time. A class the Jackson did like, he had a class on maps when he would be in grade school, if he went to school in modern day times.

Lyncoya was a Creek Indian infant whose mother had been killed in the attack on Tallaseehatchee, located in what is now Calhoun County, Alabama, The few women not killed durin…g the battle refused to take another woman's child. The baby was taken back to Fort Strother and Andrew Jackson was the only person who knew how to get the baby to take some milk. Jackson gave the baby his name and sent him to his home in Nashville and unofficially adopted him. Life for Lyncoya was not ideal, he tried to run away several time to rejoin his people. Finally Jackson sent him to a saddle maker in Nashville as an apprentice. Lyncoya died at age 16 from TB. His burial place is unknown/
There were problems after the inauguration when many of his supporters converged in the White House. Jackson must have invited some of them and welcomed them to a point, but t…hey came in such large numbers that they forced their way in and became a problem when the food and drink ran out. They came in through the windows when the doors were closed off. Jackson had to flee and spent the night in a hotel.
