When Andrew Jackson was a little boy he lived with his mother in South Carolina. He was eight years old when he heard about the ride of Paul Revere and the famous fight at Lexington. It was then that the long war, called the Revolutionary War, began. The king's soldiers were sent into every part of the country.
The people called them the British. Some called them "red-coats. At last Charleston, in South Carolina, was taken by the British. Andrew Jackson was then a tall white-haired boy, thirteen years old. Then, without another word, he mounted his brother's little farm horse and rode away.
He was not old enough to be a soldier, but he could be a scout—and a good scout he was. He was very tall—as tall as a man. He was not afraid of anything. He was strong and ready for every duty. One day as he was riding through the woods, some British soldiers saw him.
They quickly surrounded him and made him their prisoner. He drew his sword to hit the boy with its flat side. Andrew threw out his hand and received an ugly gash across the knuckles.
Some other officers, who had seen the whole affair, cried out to the captain, "Shame! He is a brave boy.
He deserves to be treated as a gentleman. The British soldiers soon returned to Charleston, and he was allowed to go home. In time, Andrew Jackson became a very great man. He was elected to Congress, he was chosen judge of the supreme court of Tennessee, he was appointed general in the army, and lastly he was for eight years the president of the United States.
