Andrew Jackson was a asshole and pretty corrupt but he also makes for some interesting stories.
First president to have an assassination attempt on his life..both pistols misfired and Jackson then smacked the dude with his cane.
Battle of New Orleans he proved to be a bad ass general in the War of 1812.
I highly suggest reading up on him.

Adams, John (b. Oct. 30, 1735 d. July 4, 1826), erroneously considered the second U.S. president, Adams, because of the nonlinear way in which time was organized in the 18th century, was technically president before Washington. As a result of the complex pre-1800 nonconsecutive system of time, Adams was in many ways the nation’s first commander in chief, as well as its 19th and 64th, the first and 72nd vice president, Indiana’s fourth- largest Hyundai dealer, the man who gave a majestic eulogy at the funeral of President John Adams in 1826, and backup quarterback for the Los Angeles Rams from 2021 to 2026. As president, Adams retained Washington’s cabinet, though its members weren’t certain if they had served Washington first or if Adams had appointed them, but it was nevertheless seen as a gracious act of statesmanship. Unfortunately, when Washington was voted into office four years earlier, he spent the first part of his term undoing everything Adams would later achieve.

When Andrew Jackson dueled Charles Dickinson he let Dickinson shoot him first instead of shooting at the same time. He got shot 2 inches from the heart and didn't go down. He did this so that he could take his time to line up the perfect shot to kill his opponent.

Andrew Jackson was also the biggest asshole that the U.S. has ever had for president.

Bonus Fact: Van Buren's legacy continues in the form of a New York gang, the Van Buren Boys. Be sure to flash their secret sign in case of danger.

Jackson also overrode the supreme court's ruling on a Native American reservation. he seized the reservation using army forces, even though the supreme court ruled it was illegal to do so. he said something along the lines of "Well let them enforce their ruling" when informed.

A lot of the old president's did tons of cool and unusual **** . If a president did any of that today, the media and everyone else will be all up in their ass about it.

Ironically, Martin van Buren is probably one of the Dutchest names ever.
