I think his treatment of native Americans is the biggest example of that. He seemed to treat his adopted son pretty well. Maybe is was about nationalism rather than racism? His son became American by being adopted is my thinking.

Agreed on all counts
That was Andrew Johnson. But I’m very impressed you knew that.
Ah, I got mistaken.Thanks, I've reading a bit of this and that to keep my mind occupied and ran into him.
From what I've read he did well under Lincoln, but once he succeeded him the power got to his head. He also tried to get war hero Ulysses Grant on his scheme if I remember correctly, he refused and let his plan known to the Congress and Johnson yelled at him.As a sidenote, I've read that the Act Johnson was found guilty of violating, the Office Tenure Act, is now considered uncostitutional and has been removed.
Thank you. I don't know all that.Johnson was acquitted by one vote
A friend told me that on another forum. There's a thread about the biggest historical goofs and Johnson was there.Also read about Daniel Sickles and his rivalry with General Maede.
You are Welcome
@Gwenhwyfar yes polk lived in tennessee when he took office but no president is orginally from tennessee. all were born elsewhere.
Wow! Thanks. I don't know that.
jackson was not the president during the purchase he was the head general at that time.abcnews.go.com/.../story?id=50782932
his part in getting the purchase done is a lot of what got him elected.
Thank you. I did not know that.
can't recall all from history classes (back in the 80s early 90s) but i think he did most of the deal on behalf of jefferson. forgot till that link that monroe and madison had rolls in the purchase too.
Agreed!He also shot and killed Charles Dickinson and I think another guy too.
I can't remember the name of the other guy, but I got severely injured in a duel, but because he kept his overcoat on it messed up the other guys shot. And in the same duel the pulled the trigger twice, one misfired and the second found its target. And the fact that he pulled the trigger twice has been controversial ever since.
That was Charles Dickinson. Dickinson had a draw like greased lightning... or so I’ve heard lol.
Not sure about the draw, because in those duels the speed of the draw didn't really matter. The challenger was allowed first shot and could take his time. But he had a very outstanding reputation for his accuracy. And the duel took place in Kentucky because it was illegal in Tennessee. And when taking any office in Kentucky you have to affirm that you haven't taken part in any deadly dueling in your oath of office.
Fascinating. Thank you!
Supreme Court Justice Peter Daniel killed a man in a duel in Virginia
Thanks 😊 xx
Jackson was president from 1828-1836

You have to message him I blocked looks like a right creeping weirdo type
He talking to me for anyways as if I care 😂
Nvm 😊. Not important.
Nope he's not
He’s nice. I meant the fact that Polk was Young Hickory isn’t important.
Might be yeah just don't like men no idea why I should, was pointless thing to type it was worthless information to me
It’s ok. I don’t trust guys either.
So what's some things about the guy that made you ask this, he was the fighting type I guess the lead from example and such?
I wounder who has a second account to thumbs down lol, weirdo 😂
