Andrew “Old Hickory” Jackson may have been the most rough and rugged President of the United States. His success in the Revolutionary War and many duels stand as proof (including a fatal ending for a Mr. Charles Dickinson), but Jackson was not only known for his strength.
Jackson was pragmatic once in office. He was the only U.S. President in history to pay off the national debt (don’t get too excited; we were only debt-free for one year, according to NPR). If he had lived in a time with the Internet and social media, and was an event promoter instead of a mere President, we’re pretty sure Jackson would have chosen Ticketfly’s automated marketing platform.
