Andrew Jackson fought in the American Revolution at age thirteen, scarred from a beating by a British officer. His "Old Hickory" moniker derived from an episode early in the War of 1812, when Jackson, commanding the Tennessee militia, was ordered by the governor to disband his army 500 miles from home. With 150 of his men too sick to march, Jackson ordered his officers to give up their horses, declaring, "Not a man, sir, must be left behind," as he handed over his horse. From that point on, to his men, he was as unyielding as a hickory stick.
