"He was a key organizer of the Democratic Party, a dominant figure in the Second Party System, and the first president not of British or Irish descent -- his family was Dutch. He was the first president to be born an American citizen, his predecessors having been born British subjects before the American Revolution. He is also the only president not to have spoken English as his first language, having grown up speaking Dutch, and the first president from New York." (12/14/11)
