Presidential Doppelgangers


Andrew Jackson was our 7th President and is being honored with a $1 gold coin likeness and so it seems only apt to point out that Old Hickory shares a remarkable likeness to the don of the baseball writers, the most respected reporter in the game, Peter Gammons. Gammons of course, is a hall of fame writer, one of the few old-guard reporters who isn’t terrified by the internet and blogs and in fact, has long embraced and supported them. Andrew Jackson commanded the US troops in New Orleans in the War of 1812 where, outnumbered by over 2,500 he and his troops fought and won a decisive victory (had the war not already been over) suffering only 13 casualties versus the Brit’s 2,000 plus. As ever, please vote in the poll below and for all the many many other doppelgangers we have found, check out the page here.
