Martin Van Buren (Dec 5, 1782 - July 24, 1862) was the eighth President to steer the ship of the United States of America. He was in office from March 4, 1833 to March 4, 1837. His tenure as President of the United States of America was smeared heavily by an avalanche of economic hardship, most prominent of those years was the panic of 1837. Martin Van Buren was nicknamed Martin Van Ruin by his political opponents. As anticipated, he was voted out of office after serving a single term as the President of GOD'S own state. He outlived his four predecessors before he kissed the sand of mortality and strayed away to the land of ''The Forgotten''


Andrew Jackson (March 15, 1767 - June 8, 1845) was the seventh American President. He was in office from March 4, 1829 to March 4, 1837. Andrew Jackson was a prominent politician and army general during his time on Earth, he led the American army to victory against the creek Indians at the battle of Horseshoe Bend (1814), and he also led his troops to defeat the British army at the Battle of New Orleans (1815). Since, he did not hail from a distinguished family, Andrew Jackson worked so hard to succeed as a country lawyer. He owned about 300 slaves during his life time. Andrew Jackson remains one of the few American President ever to appear on the US postage more than the usual two or three times.
