Any comparison of “Old Hickory” Andrew Jackson and Abraham Lincoln is filled
with both stark contrasts and interesting similarities. Jackson was president when
Lincoln entered active politics at the state level in the 1830s. Lincoln, a lifelong
admirer of Jackson's eternal political foe Henry Clay, was (in his own words) “

Jackson was president), and thus by association a foe of Jackson's Democrats.

Historians have long debated whether Lincoln made a mistake in sending
General Irvin McDowell's army after Confederate general Thomas “Stonewall”
Jackson in the Shenandoah Valley rather than to Richmond to reinforce General
George McClellan. The pivotal question, however, is, where was McDowell
needed most? Lincoln claimed to have two reasons to send McDowell to the
Shenandoah: to protect Washington from Jackson and to capture or destroy
Jackson's army.

exactly why seven Deep South states seceded in response to the election of
Abraham Lincoln while the eight other slave states refused to do so is still unclear
. Fears for slavery are normally cited, but historians disagree about how it was
menaced and who was most alarmed. The determination of a small, all-powerful
planter class to extend slavery to perpetuate its hegemony, fears of economic
loss by the more numerous slaveholding element, and the racial anxieties of both

Three bullets struck Jackson. Initially there was hope that he would recover, but
he died on Sunday, May 10. His death took away Lee's right-hand man and
severely tested the South's belief that God was on their side. Three days later,
Lincoln read in the Washington Chronicle an appreciative editorial on Jackson.
That same day, Lincoln wrote editor John W. Forney, “I wish to lose no time in
thanking you for the excellent and manly article in the Chronicle on 'Stonewall
Jackson.

He was now in the lower valley of the Shenandoah, keeping a watch over a much
smaller force under Jackson higher up the valley. Frémont was in some sense a
soldier, but after his record in Missouri he should never have been employed. His

a characteristic kind. It will easily be understood that there were real political
reasons for not leaving this popular champion of freedom unused and
unrecognized.
