The birthplace of Andrew Jackson has been claimed by both Carolinas. In 1957, South Carolina created the Andrew Jackson Historic Park that honors his birthplace, though North Carolina also claimed Jackson, since his mother birthed him when she went to a funeral inside the state. The historical argument is based on differing primary sources that have him born at Waxhaw, South Carolina or Twelve Miles Creek, North Carolina.
