Before Andrew Jackson became the 7th President of the US, he served as a major general in the Tennessee militia. During the War of 1812 his troops reached an all time low in morale. As a result they began arguing, bickering, and fighting among themselves. It is reported that Old Hickory called them all together on one occasion when tensions were at their worst and said, “Gentlemen! Let’s remember, the enemy is over there!” His reminder would be appropriate for the church today.
