Andrew Jackson was the President of the United States at the start of 1837, replaced by Martin Van Buren on March 4.

Andrew Jackson (born March 15, 1767 in Waxhaws; died June 8, 1845 in Nashville, Tennessee) succeeded John Quincy Adams as the seventh President of the United States, serving between March 4, 1829 and March 4, 1837.

Following Andrew Jackson's exit from office, having served two terms as President, Martin Van Buren (born December 5, 1782 in Kinderhook, New York; died July 24, 1862 in Kinderhook, New York) became the eighth President of the United States, serving between March 4, 1837 and March 4, 1841.
