Autumn’s Beautiful Transformations
Used to be one of the rotten ones and I liked you for that
You would think that Andrew Jackson was giving you his undivided attention, and then you would glance over and notice that he had devoted the last several minutes to making a laborious sketch of an alligator.
“Mr. President!” you would gasp, indignantly.
“I have a bullet lodged inside my body,” he would say. “From killing a man in a duel. A better man than you.” He would resume drawing the alligator."
OH MY GOSH
Also worth noting, this duel was fought against a man who insulted Jackson’s wife. Jackson naturally challenged him to a duel, gave his opponent Charles Dickinson the first shot which hit Jackson in the chest.
Like a badass, Jackson pressed his hand against the wound, raised his pistol, and killed Dickinson with his return. The second’s to the duel claim that Jackson’s boots were filled and overflowing with blood when he walked away.
They’re like best friends!
