Andrew Jackson was made famous for the battle of New Orleans. (which was actually fought after the war was over)
Andrew Jackson was popular because the people saw him as someone just like them. And he treated all people the same and understood their needs. He saw blacks and whites as equals and respected the lower class people.
By effective, that means that he finished what he said he was going to do. That's the main reason, now all you have to do is explain what he said he was going to do and what he did to finish it. Now since, I'm guessing, that you have a textbook, I suggest you actually read it rather than asking …others because it has more information than just a normal person. ^ that is MEAN....what if we dont have a textbook?????? Ha what is the point of the Internet if we have textbooks then duhduhduhduhduh an you think you are so smart:) ( Full Answer )
Louis Riel is considered by many to have been a good leader becausehe stood firmly for what he believed in, but was also willing tocompromise. Riel founded the province of Manitoba, and was a strongadvocate for the Metis people, an aboriginal group in Canada.
Yes, I think any reasonable person would say that he did. He was a strong leader, knew what he wanted to do, and that offended some, but he also was a politician and knew how to get his ideas forwarded and accepted. The fact the he was re-elected after some controversy indicated that he had go…od leadership skills. ( Full Answer )
Andrew Jackson was very loyal to his friends and also easilyangered. He famously fired all of his cabinet members, except forone, because all of the members refused to invite the one member'swife to parties.
Andrew Jackson (March 1767 to June 1845) served in the militiaduring the American Revolutionary War, and was later elected as theseventh President of the United States. Jackson was popular amongcitizens due to being a war hero and being more like the citizensthan other candidates.
This is debatable, but many will say the trail of tears and his economic policies. (As the recession that followed his Presidency would point out)
Humility, modesty, and having faith were among the qualities which made Gandhi a good leader. He knew what was right for his people and no matter what, he kept on going.
Andrew Jackson was extremely popular during his time because hedefeated the British at the Battle of New Orleans in 1815. He alsoappealed to the common man by denouncing the aristocracy.
Andrew Jackson helped fight in the War of New Orleans and The War of 1812, he was the seventh president of America. He fought in wars and he was also a general.
One thing that made Andrew Jackson a great president was that heused his presidential powers to veto bills he thought were unfit.He also changed the way presidential were held by holding ralliesand appearances.
The Battle of New Orleans in January of 1815 made Jacksonnationally famous. There was talk about running him for Presidentin 1816.
Andrew Jackson initially became famous for defeating the Britishforces at the Battle of New Orleans in the War of 1812. AndrewJackson was the 7th President of the United States.
He was legally elected . His national standing came mostly from his heroic victory over the British in 1815. People who lived in areas threatened by Indians appreciated his success in putting down most of the threats. The population of the US was moving westward and the first presidents were all wea…lthy easterners from old families. Jackson who was from the West and his parents were poor immigrants from Ireland. This fact undoubtedly made Jackson seem more likely to understand the problems of people in the West. ( Full Answer )
Because the people belived that Jackson would defend the rights of the common people and slave states rather than Adams who disagreed.
Because that is what he was. He started with no family, wealth or connections. No one paid to give him an education and nobody paved his way to national prominence. He was able to marry a woman that had some family connections, but that was due to his own charm and initiative. He did not start wit…h any advantages except his own looks and intelligence. ( Full Answer )
There were no wars while Jackson was President, so I would not call him a war leader.
He was popular at first because he was more like them than were the old line aristocrats who opposed him. He also was a war hero and had the ability to instill confidence in his men when he was a general ,and with the people when he became President. Even when he did things that they were dubiou…s of, they still supported him, trusting that he was always working for them and was a better choice than his opponents in every case, ( Full Answer )
He was re-elected with just about the same majority(55-56 %) the second time as the first, so he must have been reasonably popular.
Both were victorious in battles against Indians. Jackson went on to rout the British and gain a great victory which was important to the American psyche, at New Orleans. Harrison was chosen by the Whigs, as a sort of duplicate of Jackson. Although he was really from the old aristocracy of Virgin…ia, he lived in the west and had one notable victory over Tecumseh at Tippecanoe. He also had served as a territorial governor and had no political baggage to overcome, since he had never served as a elected official, (except as the clerk of a county court.) ( Full Answer )
Well, he was a military hero, and he was also a self-made man (did not grow up wealthy). So, average citizens -- the commoners -- thought of him as one of their own: tough and hard-working. The class divide that separated so many politicians from your average Joe Shmoe wasn't there.
He claimed to have been born in Van Wyck, SC on Hwy 521 south of Charlotte, NC. There is a marker put up by the DAR in Lancaster Co., South Carolina. He claims to have been born on March 15, 1767 on a Plantation owned by James Crawford.
Your question calls for a value judgment and so is really a matter of opinion, but I think his biggest contribution was to move the Presidency away from the old wealthy aristocratic establishment along the coast and to the people who had moved West, recently cleared land and endured the hardships of… the frontier. He thus gave the common people more of a voice in the federal government.. Andrew Jackson was also the father of our modern banking system and his Indian policy m made the the "Trail of Tears" possible which forced Native Americans to leave the East Coast and go to Oklahoma. Jackson also averted a civil war. South Carolina declared it had the power to annul federal laws, specifically an unpopular tariff. Jackson declared this an unconstitutional decision and his resolve held the South Carolina government at bay. ( Full Answer )
He was viewed as a man of the people. He supported the common man and was the height of patriotism. He was also a war hero from the Battle of New Orleans in 1812. He defeated the British (even though the war was technically over, news traveled slowly).
No, he was still a boy and was not at a leader, but he was engaged in the fighting and was actually captured as a POW by the British for a short time and almost died from small pox.
Jackson actually won the popular vote -- you are thinking of John Q. Adams who won the presidency in 1824 when Jackson won the plurality of the popular vote. Others who won the presidency but lost the popular vote were Hayes in 1876 and George Bush in 2000, and probably John Kennedy in 1960.
He was a complex person who led a violent and adventurous life. He was quick to lose his temper and dealt with his enemies harshly. Jackson intended to be a strong president by expanding the powers of the presidency. At the same time, Jackson's supporters admired his ability to inspire and lead othe…rs. They considered him a man of his word and a champion of the common people. ( Full Answer )

And who told you that Ulyanov was a "great leader"? The man could not resist the temptation of adopting a "nom de guÃ¨re": Lenin, from the river Lena in Siberia, where he spent a few months in exile, before leaving to a life of comfort in the west, until the German military intelligence sent him h…ome to rupture the allied front against Germany. A regular traitor of his country. He was, to be sure, a strong leader. He combined an enormous stubborn willpower, with a strong gift of persuasion and an insatiable hunger for power over people. He was a prejudiced person, what you would call a racist. He did not like... Russians! He preferred Russified Jews (who bent over backwards not to be seen as Jewish and were ashamed of their origin and culture) and also Georgians, Germans, and Latvians- among other non-Russians. When his sorry little regime was really threatened (December 1917), he specifically asked not be defended by a Russian guard, but by the disciplined and tough Latvian Rifles. When his main agent, Lev Trotsky (also a "nom de guÃ¨re"- of a self-hating Jew) succeeded in ensuring the Bolsheviks power over the land, Lenin and the gang started the "Red Terror" (sic!) and began killing all people of talent and skills. Stalin and his minions continued the work - very successfully. This is why Russia, which before WW1 exported great quantities of wheat, by the time of Brezhnev imported food. It still does - a lot. Ukraine, the bread basket of Europe, became the scene of mass starvation in the early thirties. Lenin's main idea was power. And the second: social engineering - fighting human nature. Both continue til this very day and a likely to be around for a long time. Then Lenin died (January 1924) after a massive stroke. Stalin, who conquered power by conquering the Party apparatus - no party member vote, let alone popular vote, found it a good idea to make Lenin a demi-god. When Khrushchev decided to disavow his former boss Stalin, he needed Lenin's symbolic figure even more. From the demi-god he was under Stalin, Lenin became a real Our Father who art in Heaven. The former Soviet Union is still full of Lenin monuments, and a huge number of streets and metro stations still proudly bear his name. 18 years after the demise of the Soviet Empire, people are still afraid to do away with this monster figure. Imagine a major county in the Rhineland called "Kreis Hitlerburg". Or perhaps one of the BundeslÃ¤nder called "Hitlerland". And another one in Austria... ( Full Answer )

Because the people belived that Jackson would defend the rights of the common people and slave states rather than Adams who disagreed. By:Giselle Class: 732 Edward B. Shallow
Because Andrew Jackson won the most popular votes and the government liked him better. He also supported Van Buren which a lot of people liked, which made him more popular.
He was a populus man, meaning he was for the people, and the country had no debt under him.
He was popular with the common people, because he was the first president to have been born from the West and relate with the common people, not just the wealthy people. He further eliminated the property need to vote, increasing the amount of people voting.
He didn't plan on being the president. He was born into a poor family and the past presidents before him had been rich. Most people just become successful and see that they have a chance of winning.

Which about the 1824 presidential election is TRUE A candidate Andrew Jackson lost despite the most popular vote B A North-Easterner John Quince Adams was elected president C A depression followed?
The 1824 presidential election is very similar to the 2016 contestbetween Hillary Clinton and Donald J. Trump. Just like now, in1824, the winner of the popular vote did not have enough electoralvotes to win the election. The Electoral College actually votes for the US President. ThePopular Vote only… 'elects' the members of the Electoral College. ( Full Answer )
