Gilbert Jack ~ c. 1578-1628 ~ A Scottish professor who was the first to teach metaphysics at Leydon, The Netherlands.14

Andrew Jackson ~ 1767-1845 ~ American statesman and 7th President of the US. He married Elizabeth Hutchins (or Hutchinson), and claimed to have been born somewhere between Carrickfergus and the US and was brought up in the back country of the Carolinas. He was probably born in Waxhaw Settlement, SC. Tennessee was admitted to the Union in 1796 and Jackson was sent as its representative to Congress. He was elected to the senate in 1797 but resigned his seat in 1798 to become judge of the Tennessee Supreme Court, where he served six years. When the War of 1812 broke out, he offered his services with 2,500 volunteers of Tennessee militia, of which he was commander-in-chief. In 1814 Jackson was made a major general and put in command of the Department of the South. He repulsed the enemy at Mobile, took Pensacola by storm, and then marched to New Orleans, where he fortified the city against the British. His victory of Jan 8, 1815, made Jackson the hero of the nation. Neither side knew at that time that a peace treaty had been signed in Belgium two weeks before. When in 1819, the US purchased Florida, Jackson was appointed governor, and in 1823, he was elected to the Senate. In 1824 he was nominated for the Presidency; but the election went to the House of Representatives which chose John Quincy Adams. In 1828, Jackson was again nominated, defeating Adams by a large electoral and popular majority. He introduced the theory that "to the victors belong the spoils", and made wholesale removals of Federal officials to make room for his own appointees. He attacked the US Bank, opposing the renewal of its charter, which would expire in 1836. He was reelected in 1832 and opposed the South Carolina nullification movement. After his second term, Jackson lived in retirement at "The Hermitage" near Nashville. Old Hickory, it has been said, is the most famous Ulster-Scot of them all.1,5,14

Thomas Jonathan 'Stonewall' Jackson ~ 1824-1863 ~ Confederate General born in Virginia. He graduated from West Point and served with distinction in the Mexican War. Veteran of the Mexican War and lecturer at the Virginia Military Institute gained the nickname 'Stonewall' for his dour and determined approach to warfare (this reference from 1) (Ref. 14 says he won the name at the first battle of Bull Run because his brigade stood "like a stone wall" against the Union troops.) In 1861 he became a brigadier general in the confederate forces. The firm stand of his brigade at Bull Run won him the nickname "Stonewall" (this reference from 5). Jackson's Shenandoah Valley Campaign of 1862 is one of the classics of military strategy. He defeated three separate Union armies and prevented the Western Federal Army from reinforcing McClellan. Later in the same year, Jackson aided Lee in the Seven Days' Battles, cooperated in the strategy that resulted in the brilliant Confederate victory of Second Bull Run, and captured Harper's Ferry. Jackson was accidentally shot by his own men after having executed a flank march which surprised Hooker and contributed to Lee's victory at Chancellorsville. Pneumonia set in, and his death resulted.1,5
