Andrew Jackson was the first and only president to ever pay off the national debt....
Not only did he leave our country rich, but he also boosted the economy as well as expanded our territory west.
He led the industrial revolution to the west, which carried advancement and knowledge.
In the article, Westward Expansion, it states, "However, westward expansion provided the United States with vast natural resources and ports along the Atlantic, Pacific and Gulf coasts for expanding trade, key elements in creating the superpower America is today."
"As long as our government is administered for the good of the people, and is regulated by their will; as long as it secures to us the rights of persons and of property, liberty of conscience and of the press, it will be worth defending." -Andrew Jackson
