In due time, Jackson would become one of the most towering figures in American history -- and the personal bane of the Black Seminoles. 

In 1815, his star was just beginning to rise. After New Orleans, popular opinion held that "the Hero" was destined for the White House. He would eventually prove to be a political genius, but Jackson's ascension on the national stage was still a generation away. Already, however, it was clear that the Hero could appeal to widely disparate elements of the electorate.
