    Andrew Jackson Twice Signed Document Regarding Clothes for his Children, Including his Adopted Son. "To make coat for Andrew J. D...." and his Presumed Slave "To make coat for Charles". Also Included is Jackson's Receipt "for the National Portrait Gallery of Distinguished Americans." Andrew Jackson (1767-1845), seventh President (1829-1837). Nicknamed "Old HIckory," he defeated the British during the War of 1812 at New Orleans. In 1818, he invaded Florida and was later a Congressman and Senator from Tennessee. Although he garnered more popular and electoral votes than John Q. Adams in 1824, he lost the election in the House, leading to charges of a corrupt deal. He defeated Adams in 1828, and won re-election in 1832. He introduced the spoils system to American politics, signed a tariff in 1832, removed Native Americans from their lands, and vetoed the recharter of the Bank of the United States. Document signed, two pages, November 23, 1820. Fantastic document that is not only signed twice by Andrew Jackson, but also details the exquisite fabrics used for clothing. The document calls for velvet cloth, silk and linen. The part dated November 23, 1820, where Jackson makes payment for the items, is written in Jackson's hand as well as an endorsement on the other side. Accompanied by COA from PSA/DNA.
