O.K. ~ Little Magician ~ President Number 8……………

I was born in New York and was the first president to be born as an American not as British.  

I was president during the middle of a depression and the “Trail of Tears” happened during my presidency.  

I was given the nicknames, “The Little Magician” and “Old Kinderhook” (where the word “OK” comes from).  

After my one term, I tried to be reelected three times, but was never elected.  

Who am I?

Martin Van Buren

8th President of the United States
In Office
March 4, 1837 – March 4, 1841
