Top 20 Andrew Jackson Quotes

Andrew Jackson Quotes
Andrew Jackson

Born in a log cabin in the wilds of the Carolinas and orphaned at the age of fourteen, Andrew Jackson grew up with the frontier spirit of one always ready to defend and honor his country. Before the presidency, he gained fame as a general in the U.S. Army and served in both houses of the U.S. Congress.

His self- reliance, and determination would serve him well as a lawyer, judge, congressman, senator, military hero, and the seventh president of the United States. It was his heroism in the War of 1812 that earned him the nickname “Old Hickory” and thrust him into national prominence. Jackson and his Tennessee militia defeated the British at New Orleans, marking the end of the fighting.


His military triumphs led to his nomination as president, and he was elected in 1828. His election marked the first time a president was elected from the area west of the Appalachians and the first time an election focused on direct mass appeal to the voters. This rising tide of democratic sentiment became known as “Jacksonian democracy.”

Andrew Jackson has been widely admired in the United States as an advocate for democracy and the common man. Historians and Scholars have ranked him favorably among U.S. presidents. Here are our Top 20 Andrew Jackson Quotes for you.

Gentlemen! I too have been a close observer of the doings of the Bank of the United States. I have had men watching you for a long time, and am convinced that you have used the funds of the bank to speculate in the breadstuffs of the country. When you won, you divided the profits amongst you, and when you lost, you charged it to the bank. You tell me that if I take the deposits from the bank and annul its charter I shall ruin ten thousand families. That may be true, gentlemen, but that is your sin! Should I let you go on, you will ruin fifty thousand families, and that would be my sin! You are a den of vipers and thieves. I have determined to rout you out, and by the Eternal, (bringing his fist down on the table) I will rout you out!
