詹姆斯諾克斯波爾克是美國第十一任總統,也是一位受安得魯傑克遜提拔的跟隨者(其職涯都是因他人的影響而決定的),傑克遜正是田納西州富有莊園家庭的好友。

波爾克幼年因多病無法正常到學校受教育,但卻能在二十二歲時順利以優異成績畢業於北卡羅萊納大學,他因為精彩的演說才能、被暱稱為「殘缺的拿破崙」(Napoleon of the Stump)。波爾克是個努力工作的領導者,在其總統任內成為歷史上最富生產力的領袖,他大幅拓展美國疆域、重建獨立的國庫體系,並完成許多其他的成就。

在總統選舉期間,他發誓只任一屆的總統、也在1848年遵守諾言放棄再次競選。

James Knox Polk was the 11th president of the United States and a protege (one whose career is helped by the influence of another) of Andrew Jackson, who was a good friend of the prosperous farming Polk family in Tennessee. Polk was too sick as a child to get formal schooling, yet managed to graduate at the top of his class from the University of North Carolina when he was 22. He was nicknamed "Napoleon of the Stump" for his excellent speaking skills. Polk was a very hard-working chief executive who proved to be one of the most productive presidents in history. He greatly expanded the U.S. territory and reestablished the independent treasury system, among many other accomplishments.

Upon election, he vowed to serve only one term, a promise he kept when he declined to run in 1848.
