The Boyhood Story of Andrew Jackson President Andrew Jackson had what one would consider a difficult childhood. He never knew his father, who died just before he was born. He was orphaned at fourteen when his mother died while tending ill prisoners in Charles Town. He was dependent on the kindness of relatives in order to have a home during his boyhood. The Revolutionary War disrupted his family, his neighborhood, his entire childhood life. He was forced to develop traits of self-reliance and persistence in order to survive and make his own way in the world. Yet, he still had time to take part in boyish occupations such as athletic competitions and the mastery of hunting, shooting, and other skills. He later became a man of war (the War of 1812) as well as a man of peace (at home at the Hermitage outside of Nashville), and rose to the height of a boy’s imagination – becoming the President of the United States. Come walk down the paths Andrew Jackson trod in the Carolina Backcountry and see how he grew into the man who would become President.
