Andrew Jackson stern man with good intentions

Jackson was tough in that he was challenged in a duel by Charles Dickinson and took a bullet to the chest and didn't flinch, shooting and killing Dickinson.
Jackson threatened South Carolina with the military when they threatened to leave the country, keeping unity with the states.

Andrew Jackson had the common people and farmers in mind when becoming president. He was known as the "Man of the People" due to his welcomed bias towards the common person.

Sure Jackson was a angry and aggressive person which is evident through his quote, "I have only two regrets: I didn't shoot Henry Clay and I didn't hang John C. Calhoun." but that compared to what he did as a president
