Rachel Jackson was the wife of, Andrew Jackson, the 7th President of the United States. In what some consider one of the most vicious elections in U.S. history, Rachel endured extensive ridicule and malice during her husband's election campaign. She died of a heart attack just three months before her husband's inauguration. Her niece, Emily Donelson, became the surrogate first lady upon her death.
