Jackson, in Florida The father of general Jackson emigrated from Ireland in 1765, and settled his family at Waxsaw, now the district of Marion, in South Carolina- his son Andrew was born the 15th March, 1767- and at the close of that year the father died, leaving his wife and children, Hugh, Robert, and Andrew, in possession of a small estate. The subject of these memoirs, being the youngest son, was early destined by the mother for the ministry- and at Waxsaw there was an academy, under the instruction of a well educated gentleman. At this school Andrew pursued classic and the other higher branches of education, until the age of fourteen, when the approach of the English army dispersed the Waxsaw school, and Andrew, with his brother Robert, entered the army of freedom. Hugh, the oldest brother, fell a victim at the battle of Stono, fighting for the same cause. A band of tories and English dragoons attacked those who had embodied themselves at Waxsaw, and Andrew and his brother were made prisoners. Here an incident occurred that developed the future character. A British officer directed Andrew to clean his boots. The boy refused, and said - "I am a prisoner of war, and demand treatment as such." The officer made a pass at him with his sabre, which was parried by Andrew's hand, which received a deep wound. Robert also received a deep wound in the head soon after he was made a prisoner. The two brothers were put in prison, confined iu separate apartments, and their wounds suffered to remain undressed. They were soon after exchanged- but Robert quickly sunk under his wound. The mother, disconsolate and overcome with suffering, in a short time took her flight to join her departed family in eternity. Two years thereafter young Jackson resumed his literary pursuits- which he continued until the age of eighteen, when he commenced the study of law in North-Carolina- and in 1786 he entered upon the practice of his profession in the twentieth year of his age.
