Question: Which president did people compare to a tree?

Answer Andrew Jackson! But it wasn't an insult. People called him Old Hickory because he was strong and dependable.

  • He grew up on the frontier. In the one-room schoolhouse he went to, the children sat on logs instead of chairs.
  • He once killed a man in a duel and was almost killed himself.
  • He led the American Army at the Battle of New Orleans. Called the Hero of New Orleans, he helped the United States win the War of 1812 against Great Britain.
