This 1834 woodcut depicts Andrew Jackson’s brawl with the Benton brothers.  Jackson figures prominently in the middle.  Jackson’s friend, John Coffee, is on the far left about to strike Thomas Hart Benton.  Another friend of Jackson’s is about to hit Jesse Benton, who is pinned to the ground.  (From The Life of Andrew Jackson, President of the United States by Major Jack Downing.
