Andrew Jackson (1767-1845) served as President of the United States from 1829 to 1837. He is remembered as a controversial and fierce politician who consistently fought for democracy, majority rule, and direct election of government officials. These themes are present in his first inaugural address, where he acknowledges the “arduous duties” he must carry out “by the choice of a free people.”
