Jackson demonstrated traits that appealed to people as a hard worker with an attitude. He did what needed to be done to achieve the desired outcome. Throughout his life he seemed like he was always was trying to prove himself to others. Even after winning several battles he truly never felt the gratification of victory. He was one who only settled for success, who wouldn’t let anything stand in the way. He seemed anxious for a battle/ war to happen. Take note, Andrew Jackson was a military man in title only. He had never served active duty and he had never led troops in combat. He had been elected to his position only by having political friends. Nonetheless, when war broke out, Jackson did not hesitate before offering the government the use of thousands of troops under his command in Tennessee. Even if his man in charge had aborted the mission. He didn’t take any of that in, he himself led his troops (there goes “Old Hickory”) back to Nashville.

Although he didn’t have the qualifying military experience to begin with, he earned the reputation and recognition to prove himself. He was successful and recognized for the way he carried him self, his strong and determined personality
