JEFFERSON AND JACKSON 2 The early presidents of the United States of America faced many obstacles; establishing a new country and fighting wars for independence and others to dissolve civil issues but great pressure on our founding leaders. Thomas Jefferson and Andrew Jackson both made great strides in advancing our country. Jefferson was the third president and his focus during his campaign and first stint as president was based on simplicity and frugality. During Jefferson’s second stint as president his focus was foreign affairs. Andrew Jackson was the seventh president of the United States of America but he was the first of many feats; he was the first of the seven president’s who did not come from the aristocracy or rich society, he was the first to have a vice president resign, he was the first to marry a divorcee, first to use a informal cabinet of advisors, first to veto a bill from congress, and the first to be nominated from a national convention. (North Carolina State Library, 1999)
