Jackson was first featured on the $20 bill in 1928; he will no longer be the only American face to appear on the bill, as UsefulNotes/HarrietTubman will also be printed sometime between 2016 and 2020. Funnily enough, [[{{Irony}} he hated the idea of paper money]], and the reason he ended up pictured on it has unfortunately been lost to history.

Jackson was first featured on the $20 bill in 1928; he will no longer be the only American face to appear on the bill, as UsefulNotes/HarrietTubman will also be printed sometime between 2016 and 2020. 2020 (it was originally supposed to be the $10 bill due to [[UsefulNotes/AlexanderHamilton Hamilton]] originally not being considered especially important anymore, but [[Theatre/{{Hamilton}} you can guess what changed that mindset]]). Funnily enough, [[{{Irony}} he hated the idea of paper money]], and the reason he ended up pictured on it has unfortunately been lost to history.
history. But it's safe to assume he "[[WesternAnimation/AquaTeenHungerForce wouldn't have given a shit]]" about this change.

* In ''Okla Hannali'', a rare historical novel written by science fiction author RALafferty, Andrew Jackson figures in the background during the first half of the book. Though not part of the narrative directly he is depicted as an outright villain, and the author blames him not only for laying the seeds for the UsefulNotes/AmericanCivilWar but for [[TheChessmaster deliberately enacting the Indian removals in the winter]] so that as many Indians as possible could die of exposure. This makes sense in context of the story as the book deals largely with the build-up to the the Trail of Tears and its aftermath, and centers on vignettes from the life of a Choctaw 'Mingo' called Hannali Innominee and his family. Because the book's prose is a blend of non-fiction and oral history it's difficult to say which are facts and which are opinions of the author. [[SignatureStyle All of this is on par with Lafferty's usual style.]]

* He is a major character (though not the protagonist) in the Literature/TrailOfGlory series by EricFlint. Flint has mentioned that Jackson is wonderful to have as a character, since whatever he makes him do, the real-life Jackson did something just as outrageous. The characterisation feels very true to life.

Added DiffLines:

* In the AlternateHistory classic ''Literature/ForWantOfANail'', Jackson is among those who join the exodus from the British colonies after the failure of the American Revolution, eventually settling in the new nation of Jefferson (our universe's Texas). Later, when Jefferson went to war with Mexico, he was in command of the victorious Jefferson armies, and after the two nations are joined together as the United States of Mexico, Jackson becomes the first President.

'''Andrew Jackson''' (March 15, 1767 June 8, 1845) was the seventh president of the United States of America, serving from [[UsefulNotes/AntebellumAmerica 1829 to 1837]], right after UsefulNotes/JohnQuincyAdams and right before UsefulNotes/MartinVanBuren, and was the first president from the Democratic Party. He was also a living testament to how {{Badass}} a man can be; no future president was near as badass until UsefulNotes/TheodoreRoosevelt came to office.
