Alexander Young Jackson was born October 3rd, 1882, In the family home which was located on Mackay street, Montreal, Jackson was the third of six children. When people think about Jackson they tend to see him as being a Quebec artist which is rightly so , but the roots of his family reached into Ontario and because of this his art life is identified as much with Ontario as Quebec.
Jackson was early influenced by the works of James Wilson Morrice and owes something to the French Impressionists and Post Impressionists. Even thought Jackson work has been influenced Morrice and the French Impressionists and Post Impressionists . Jackson has alway maintained a definite personal quality to his art. Jackson has devoted himself exclusively to landscape painting. It has been the back country which appeals most to Jackson. We should be glad that he has vigorously recorded a section of Canada that is so inexhaustibly rich in character and is infinite in the variety of beauty. There is in everything that he paints an inherent devotion to his own ideals, and a constant striving to dig deeper and explore more fully the sublet and significant manifestation of the Canadian Scene. Jackson is a sublet colourist and an able teachician, but the most mark of index for Jackson identification is the lyrical rhythm and flow of his compositions and the directness with which he grasps the essentials. He knows better than most artists what to leave out and his pictures never carry an overburden of distracting or trivial detail. When looking at Jackson work one can see that Canada and what it had to offer from a visual prospective was extremely important to him. It is clear that Jackson wanted to show of the best of what Canada had to offer and for Jackson this was the vast out doors found from coast to coast. In the painting of landscape Jackson had devoted him self to painting does not mean that he is limited in any way actually it is the opposite there seems to be a large variety of subject matter and a constant mood changing. It is not in Jackson’s nature to develop a sequence of variations on a subject he has found popular. It would have been against what Jackson saw as the ideals of artistic honesty to paint with one eye on the dealer or the buying public. Showing that Jackson puts an inherent devotion to his own ideals, and a constant striving to dig deeper and explore more fully the subtle and significant manifestations of the Canadian scene. The freshness found within Jackson work is because of the new visions, new subjects and new viewpoint , are apparent because he somehow manages to keep the spirit of adventure and is always looking for new material. A.Y. Jackson is not by temperament an eccentric or fluctuating experimenter. There is very much a sturdy conservatism found within his work and a dogged and persistent progress towards his own ideals. It is clear that Jackson has a very clear idea of what kind of works he wants to paint to show off the wonderful nature found within Canada. In doing this one can see that Jackson wants other Canadians to see what Canada has to offer. That we has Canadians should be proud of our country and what we have to offer in the world. In all his work, east or west, we get a whiff of the fresh, crisp atmosphere north of the forty-fifth parallel. Looking at North Lake by Jackson we get a sense of the natural beauty found within Canada. Jackson found the subject for this picture at Walsh Lake in the Yellowknife country years before the big gold rush developed there. The rugged shoreline of small spruce tress is used as a decorative design in the manner of a frieze which could have been extended at either end almost indefinitely. The warm light of a summer sunset transforms the somber greens of the northern spruce into a glowing pattern of opulent colour. In this canvas a characteristic aspect of the northern lakes is lifted to unusual distinction by catching that glorious fleeting moment, before dusk, when the eastern shores are bathed in the last warm rays of the departing day. A painting like Early Spring requires a highly analytical mind to strip the subject of non-essential and retain the vital and important facts in so bold and vigorous a design. Jackson was not concerned with photographic detail realism or with atmospheric effects. What he did wants to do was to translate the scene into a simple pattern, and a happily balance colour harmony of quite reds and the complementary green-blues of the sky and water. Despite the breadth and simplicity of painting, it is a sensitive and convincing interpretation of early spring in the Georgian Bay district when the ice is disappearing. April, Petite Riviere is a red-roofed barn set against a background of Laurentian Hills is the simple motif of this picture. It is a good example of Jackson’s power to lift a simple subject into the realms beauty and distinction by the breadth and subtlety of his personal interpretation. There is nothing accidental about the charm of this canvas, it is a carefully considered harmony of reds with a brilliant vermilion roof as the focal accent and the greenish-blue sky as a satisfying complementary. The picture is painted with rhythm and flow of design and vigour of execution. While definitely stylized in treatment, it radiates a feeling of actuality and presents a very convincing picture of a Quebec farm in the hills.

The Red Maple. Painted in Jackson’s Toronto studio in November 1914, this landscape is based on a sketch from nature produced along the Oxtongue River in Algonquin Park. With the foreground screen of fragile young branches and fluttering read leaves set against a background of Churning rapids, this composition captures a distinctive natural phenomenon in Canada, and one symbolic of budding nationalist sentiments, which the outbreak of war a few months earlier had make more acute. Entrance To Halifax Habour. This was painting Shortly after the close of the Great War before the ships had discarded their camouflage. The scattered village of frame houses and the patches of wet ground showing through the slushy snow make a bold pattern which holds the composition together. Jackson has caught the spirit and character of the country on a March day when the winter snows are rapidly departing. Edge of the Maple Wood When Jackson painted this canvas he was unknowingly weaving, in pigment, a magic carpet which carried him from Quebec to Ontario and definitely changed his future art associations. The picture was painted in Sweetsburg, Quebec, in 1901, shortly after his return from European study, and is one of the few early canvases by Jackson still in existence. Exhibited in Toronto in 1911, it attracted the attention and enthusiasm of J.E.H. MacDonald and Lawren Harris. Neither of these Toronto artist had ever heard of Jackson, but it started a correspondence and friendship. The picture was purchased by Harris, but what was more important, Jackson was prevailed upon to come to Toronto and join a Canadian Art movement which was just beginning to get under way. After an interruption by the Great war, the movement crystallized in the Group of Seven and Jackson was on of the original members. It is a canvas, painted entirely out-of-doors, of early spring in the Canadian countryside. In it day it was unusual enough. Jackson had made no attempt to select the conventionally pretty or picturesque subject which dominated the exhibitions at the time. This picture is quite different from Jackson’s recent work, it is not stylized, but faithfully observed and directly painting. Aside from the fresh breath and warm sunshine of April in Quebec. Winter on the north shore of the St. Lawrence has been the subject of many canvases by Jackson. It is a country he knows intimately and paints with sustained enthusiasm. In this canvas the rambling winter road and half-buried fence rails wind over the undulating ground past the sparse settlement and disappear among the hills. There is a feeling of big space and a sense of actuality, but what is more important is the pattern of from and colour, It is the grace and lyrical movement of the line and the subtle colour arrangement that gives to this canvas a unity and distinction. It is interesting to observe all the variations the artist uses of the simple motif of a winter road running right into the canvas. The open road has a fascination for Jackson and appears frequently in his winter pictures. Red Cedar In a very restrained of colour, Jackson has worked out an exquisite harmony of greys which express the spirit of the picture. The unity and relationship of the elements, sky, water, and rock, in a pattern of repeated rhythm, ties the whole canvas together in a well-sustained expression of the mood and subject. Despite the simplicity of the colour and composition, there is a vibrant feeling of latent life and force combined with impressive dignity. The gnarled cedar, battered by the wind, grimly clinging to a meagre existence on the rocky hilltop, adds immeasurably to the decorative arrangement of this picture of a brooding, stormy day on Georgian Bay. At St. Hilarion, Quebec Jackson admirable facility of selection and elimination is well illustrated in this canvas. He has seized on the significant fact and suffused them with the magic and charm of colour. There is a lyrical realism in the rhythm of the undulating snow-covered hills, with the winter road dipping up and down and disappearing over the hill-top on the horizon. The little sleighs moving slowly along the road add a human note without being insistent. The contrast of the rounded snow forms with the flat plains and angular slopes of barns and houses is typical of Jackson ‘s work. Jackson does not worry us with the introduction of finicking details, but grasps with amazing insight the bigger things and present them with a flow and ease of design in this picture with radiates the charm of a winter day in the St. Hilarion district. The works of A.Y. Jackson showed that Canada a lot of offer artistically. That some how would be able to use what Canada’s nature to help make the country come together. That all Canadians would be able to see that we have more in common than we ever though possible. Jackson works help Canadians that there was so much more to Canada then just a city live. That there was a lot of value to be found in abounded amount of nature that was to be found from coast to coast.

He went on to fight in may battles always come out of the fight victorious. When the US needed him the most they sent him to fight and the next year Jackson managed to stop a British assault on New Orleans. The fighting was hard but the US was able to win for many reasons. First of all they expected a large British naval force with twenty five thousand groung troop but in reality it was much less than once thought. They had dug in (literally dug into the ground) and had been preparing for a fight for days. The British had been ready because they poorly prepared their assault and failed on the most important of their attacks.

...The story happened at Western Construction. Steve Jackson, working as a project professional in the PEG of this company, suggested a new BSO software project. The boss of Jackson, Luke William, and Abu Dija who led the Project Evaluation Group were all impressed by the BSO software project and consented to this new proposal. However, Bamett, who led the group of International bidding and contracting, believed that the BSO software project was an inferior product. He resisted to change and stated that the current software was working just fine even though he was also quite sure that the BOS software project was designed specifically for their industry and did bring benefits. Bamett had a tight relationship with Abu Dija since graduation and he even demanded Abu Dija and Luke William to replace Jackson. Also, Luke William shied away from confrontation because he wanted to be worldlywise and played safe. Luke William and Abu Dija demanded Jackson to get Barnett on board. Whereas, Barnett was a stubborn guy and he never attended to any demo meetings of the BSO software project and also refused to listen to any explanations. There are four main characters in this case.

Andrew Jackson

...Andrew Jackson (March 15, 1767 – June 8, 1845) was the seventh President of the United States (1829–1837). He was born into a recently immigrated Scots-Irish farming family of relatively modest means, near the end of the colonial era. He was born somewhere near the then-unmarked border between North and South Carolina. During the American Revolutionary War Jackson, whose family supported the revolutionary cause, acted as a courier. He was captured, at age 13, and mistreated by his British captors. He later became a lawyer, and in 1796 he was in Nashville and helped found the state of Tennessee. He was elected to the U.S. House of Representatives, and then to the U. S. Senate. In 1801, Jackson was appointed colonel in the Tennessee militia, which became his political as well as military base. Jackson owned hundreds of slaves who worked on the Hermitage plantation which he acquired in 1804. Jackson killed a man in a duel in 1806, over a matter of honor regarding his wife Rachel. Jackson gained national fame through his role in the War of 1812, where he won decisive victories over the Indians and then over the main British invasion army at the Battle of New Orleans. Jackson's army was sent to Florida where, without orders, he deposed the small Spanish garrison. This led directly to the treaty which formally transferred Florida from Spain to the United States. Nominated for president in 1824, Jackson narrowly lost to John Quincy Adams. Jackson's supporters then founded what......

...his strict, unfeeling ways of dealing with the Indians. Old Hickory, for his strict ways of commanding soldiers under him. King Jackson, to his political enemies. Whatever you call him, even though he was our seventh president, he was the first in many ways. Unlike other presidents, born into privilege and money, Jackson was born into poverty on the western frontier. This greatly influenced his goals once he got into presidency. Jackson ran as the common man, and had a strong distrust of wealthy Northeasterners, which would cause him many conflicts in his later years. Jackson was a shoo-in for the election of 1828, because he was a war hero, and because of the campaign “Corrupt Bargainer vs Military Chieftan”. He ran with John C. Calhoun, who had switched political parties to campaign with him. When Jackson was elected, he relied heavily on the advice of his buddies in Tennessee. So much so that he fired the entire previous president’s government workers and put his supporters there instead. Adhering to Jackson was the Democratic Party, and the National Republicans (Whigs) against him. Disposing of the unpopular caucus system, and the practice of nominating committees came in. This system was popular with Jackson’s supporters because of the fact he was the ‘common man’ and this system could get yeomen into office as well as rich politicians. Jackson also supported states’ rights, a characteristic that gained him support of much of the Southern states. In 1828, the......

The thing that I found to be hardest about the rewriting of the essay was to substantially change the essay, and expand on it but to stay focused enough to give clear and concise subject matter for the topic at hand. The strengths of my new essay are that I was able to expand and elaborate on my previous work while the weakness may be that I was not as focused on the main subject topic as I would have like to have been.

I do think that I did pick great resources to gain insight into the mind of Mr. Sherman Alexie.

Jackson Letter

...March 2, 1832 Dear President Jackson: I understand exactly where you are coming from in supporting the removal of Indians from Georgia. I too must do what I think will most benefit the American citizens. I am inclined to also support the removal of Indians from Georgia. I believe it will keep America growing and prospering. Though it is a little unfair to the Indians I believe it will improve our economy and increase job availability. As for the Indians, I think we should try to remove them peacefully. They may resist but I do not think we should use valuable resources on fighting a war with the Indians. I hope that if we offer them land elsewhere they will comply. After all America could benefit from this land and the Indians have such skill in the agriculture areas they could benefit in places we could not. The land in Georgia is perfect for growing cotton and possibly other profitable crops. There are even signs of gold. This land could give our economy a big boost by creating jobs and hopefully making a big profit. I hope it does not seem too harsh a treatment for the Indians. I am simply trying to do what is best for America. I hope the Indians adapt easily to the new land. I know America will use this land to great things. For these reasons the Supreme Court is going to vote in favor of having the Indians removed from Georgia. Respectfully, John Marshall...

Andrew Jackson was born on the frontier in South Carolina to a poor family. His Father died at a young age and his mother raise him and his brothers. At the age of 14 Jackson left to join the continental army to fight the British in the Revolutionary War(23) Meachem. Him and his brothers were captured by the British and put into a prison camp and treated very poorly. His brothers were killed in this camp and coming out of it he developed a strong hatred toward the British. Also his mom was killed while serving as a nurse for the Army so he was an orphan after the War and travelled from family to family. Growing up poor and having bad experiences with the British as a young kid will affect his policies as president. Jackson became a successful lawyer in Tennessee and made a name for himself and became very wealthy. He was elected the general of the Tennessee volunteer Army at the time of the Battle of 1812(67) Meachem. His most impressive accomplishment was his victory at the......
