The Bank War: Jackson Veto and Webster's Reply - Photo 2

This portrait of Andrew Jackson, painted circa 1840, is attributed to American painter Miner Kilbourne Kellogg. The portrait shows Jackson after his presidency toward the end of his life. Jackson was president from March 4, 1829 until March 4, 1837. He had served in the House of Representatives and the Senate prior to his time in the White House, but was most famous for his victories as a major general in the War of 1812. Kellogg also painted portraits of President James K. Polk and Martin Van Buren.
