Summary
"He was controversial in his time -- and even more controversial in our own. Indian fighter, ardent patriot, hero of the War of 1812, the very embodiment of America's democratic and frontier spirit, Andrew Jackson was an iconic figure. But today he is criticized and reviled -- condemned as a slave-owner, repudiated as the president who dispatched the Indians down the "Trail of Tears," and dropped with embarrassment by the Democratic Party... Historian Bradley Birzer -- digging deeply into letters, diaries, newspaper columns, and notes from such contemporaries as John Quincy Adams, James Monroe, John C. Calhoun, Daniel Webster, and Alexis de Tocqueville -- provides a fresh and enlightening perspective on Jackson, unvarnished, true to history, but explaining why President Donald Trump, like Ronald Reagan before him, sees Andrew Jackson as a political role model."--Dust jacket flap
