    Andrew Jackson’s Childhood
    Andrew Jackson was born on March 15, 1767, in the Waxhaw settlement, a community of Scotch-Irish immigrants along the border between North and South Carolina. Though his birthplace is in dispute, he always considered himself a South Carolina native. His father died before his birth and Andrew's mother and her three small boys moved in with her Crawford relatives. Jackson attended local schools, receiving an elementary education and perhaps a smattering of higher learning. The Revolutionary War ended Jackson's childhood and wiped out his remaining immediate family. But as an orphan and a hardened veteran at the age of fifteen, Jackson drifted, taught school a little, and then read law in North Carolina. After admission to the bar in 1787, he accepted an offer to serve as public prosecutor in the new Mero District of North Carolina, west of the mountains, with its seat at Nashville on the Cumberland River. Arriving in 1788, Jackson thrived in the new frontier town. He built a legal practice, entered into trading ventures, and began to acquire land and slaves. He died on June 8, 1845 from chronic tuberculosis, dropsy, and heart failure.

    Andrew Jackson's acre and slave owning!!!
    Andrew Jackson prospered as a slave owner, planter, and merchant. In 1803 he owned a lot, and built a home and the first general store in Gallatin. In 1804, he acquired the Hermitahge, a 640 acre plantation in Davidson County, near Nashville. Jackson later added more acres to the farm. The plantation eventually grew to 1,050 acres. The slaves that Jackson owned did the most, and hardest work on the plantation. The primary crop was cotton. Jackson started with nine slaves, by 1820 he held as many as 44. Throughout Jackson's life time he owned as many as 300 slaves.

    When the British troops withdrew, the Americans began construction of artillery batteries to protect the earthworks.
    In the early morning of January 8, General Edward Pakenham ordered an assault against Jackson's position. Colonel William Thornton was to cross the Mississippi River during the night with his strong brigade. Commanded by Commodore Daniel Patterson, they moved rapidly upriver and storm the batteries on the flank of the main American entrenchments and then open an enfilading fire on Jackson's line with howitzers and rockets. Then, directly against the earthworks, the vast majority of American troops, would be launched in two columns.

    Cricket is a bat-and-ball team sport that is first documented as being played in southern England in the 16th century, it is practically like baseball. By the end of the 18th century, cricket had developed to the point where it had become the main sport of England. The growth of the British Empire led to cricket being played overseas and by the mid-19th century the first international matches were being held. Today, the game's governing body, the International Cricket Council, has 104 member countries. With its greatest popularity in the Test playing countries, cricket is widely regarded as the world's second most popular sport, after association football. The rules of the game are known as the Laws of Cricket. These are maintained by the ICC and the Marylebone Cricket Club, which holds the copyright. A cricket match is played on a cricket field at the centre of which is a pitch. The match is contested between two teams of eleven players each. One team bats, trying to score as many runs as possible without being dismissed “out” or dismissed. While the other team bowls and fields, trying to dismiss the other team’s batsmen and limit the runs being scored. When the batting team has used all its available overs or has no remaining batsmen, the roles become reversed and it is now the fielding team’s turn to bat and try to outscore the opposition. Cricket isn't played much now, instead of cricket many people play baseball.
