TRUTH !!
In 1805 Charles Dickenson called Jackson "a worthless scoundrel and a coward" in a Nashville newspaper article. Jackson challenged Dickenson to a duel.
On May 30, 1806, the two men met on the field of honor. Dickenson fired the first shot. The bullet broke two of Jackson's ribs and lodged near his heart, but he managed to remain erect. As was the dueling custom, Dickenson could neither fire again nor move from his position until Jackson fired as well. Jackson took aim and fired a fatal shot from 24 paces.

But his inoperable wound never healed properly and bothered him for the next 39 years.
