Andrew Jackson's patriotism was instilled in him at a young age as he participated in the Revolutionary War as a courier. During one of his assignments, he and his brother were captured by British soldiers and kept as prisoners. Jackson's defining moment occurred when a British officer told him to clean his boots. Jackson refused and as a result was slashed by the officer across the cheek with his sword.
The seventh President of the United States of America.
