The National Society of Natural-Born Citizens of the United States

Andrew Jackson was NOT a Natural Born Citizen

        Andrew Jackson, Junior was our 7th President, responsible for the 7th Administration, and had been born March 15, 1767 in Waxhaws, South Carolina.  He would die of dropsy and old war wounds on June 8, 1845 in Nashville, Tennessee.
 
     Both his father and mother had been foreign born in Carrickfergus, County Antrim, Ireland.  His mother, Elizabeth Hutchinson, died in Charlston, South Carolina in November of 1781.  His father, Andrew Jackson, Senior, died in Waxhaws on March 1, 1767. 
 
     They had been married in Carrickfergus, Ireland before 1760.  They traveled to the colonies, crossing the Atlantic in April and May of 1765, landing most likely at Port Deposit, Maryland.  They traveled to the garden of the Waxhaws, South Carolina by wagon to be near several sisters of Elizabeth.  
 
     Andrew Jackson, Senior was eligible to be President due to the exception clause, and his son, Andrew Jackson, Junior, who served in the Revolutionary War, was also eligible under that clause.   
 
     Jackson's parents died while he was still young.  He benefited from the exception clause and though not a natural born citizen met eligibility requirements to be President.
