Andrew Jackson was the seventh president, serving from 1829 - 1837. He had received the largest amount of electoral votes in the election of 1824, but did not receive a majority, and the House voted for John Quincy Adams instead. Jackson's supporters called this House vote a, "corrupt bargain", saying that Adams got voted in by negotiating a deal with the House Speaker Henry Clay. These accusations would haunt the rest of Adam's presidency, and Jackson would easily defeat him in the election of 1828. His supporters would group up to become the modern Democratic party.
Jackson was born on March 15, 1767 in Waxhaws, a region between the North and South Carolina border.
On June 8, 1845 in Nashville, Tennessee, Jackson died from heart failure.
