His whole life
tuas a history of
MNDREW JACKSON was an ex
f\ ample of the triumph of will
Jr \ power over difficulties. His
whole life was a history of
overcoming obstacles. Many of these
obstacles, perhaps the most serious
ones, were'in his own nature. One of
them was a hot anger that constantly
reared up,enemies in his path. Anoth
er waa a wild and reckless disposition
In youth. A third was physical disease.
One of his* military campaigns was
made at a time wben he could ?hardly
sit In the saddle because of pain. All
the latter part of his life he suffered
from ill health and wounds.
Of the outward obstacles in the way
of this indomitable man, poverty was
perhaps the chief. The loss of both
parents in youth added "to this handi
cap. The second was a rough pioneer
environment where his life was con
stantly In danger. The third was the
neglect and opposition of other people.
At one time during the Creek campaign
he was left almost alone. The term of
enlistment of his men having expired,
nearly all of them went home. At an
other time the -force under his com
mand was disbanded by the govern
ment. He was always antagonized by
the chief mjn in congress and by all
the moaeyea Interests.
Despite these fearful adverse odds
he won. There are few examples of
success In all our history more con
spicuous. He won against his personal
enemies at home. He won in all his
battles. He won over congress. He
won against the national bank. He
Won in his fight with nullification.
His mottoes are illuminative of the
man. He often said, "Nothing is done
till all is done." Another phrase con
stantly on his lips was, "A clean vic
tory or a cleau defeat" When othere
objected to his plans, he silenced them
by peremptorily exclaiming, "I will
take the responsibility." At one time In
youth, when a raft on which he tried
to cross a swollen stream was nearly
swept over a cataract, after his escape
he said he was trying to show his com
. panions how close he could graze dan
ger. He said he would get them out
yet, and he did. When the massacre at
Fort Minis occurred, he was in bed
with serious wounds, yet he took the
field immediately, though he had to be
attended by his physician, who feared
be would die on his way to camp.
