When a boy is thirteen years old his thoughts often involve going fishing with his friends, working on the family farm and perhaps one day having a horse of his own. But the year was 1781 and for Andrew Jackson the thoughts of fishing, farming, and a horse couldn?t be farther from what was on his mind. Andy and his older brother Robert were in the American Revolutionary War right up to their ears. They could not be soldiers like their older brother because they were too young. But they could be couriers to deliver messages from one American battle unit to another, on horseback. For Andy and Robert this was the least they could do in memory of their fallen older brother.
