Summaries
Back Cover Copy
More than perhaps any other president, Andrew Jackson's story mirrored that of the United States; from his childhood during the American Revolution, through his military actions against both Native Americans and Great Britain, and continuing into his career in politics. As president, Jackson attacked the Bank of the United States, railed against disunion in South Carolina, defended the honor of Peggy Eaton, and founded the Democratic Party. In doing so, Andrew Jackson was not only an eyewitness to some of the seminal events of the Early American Republic; he produced an indelible mark on the nation's political, economic, and cultural history. A Companion to the Era of Andrew Jackson features a collection of more than 30 original essays by leading scholars and historians that consider various aspects of the life, times, and legacy of the seventh president of the United States Topics explored include life in the Early Republic; issues of race, religion, and culture; the rise of the Democratic party, Native American removal events, including the Panic of 1837, the birth of women's suffrage, and more.
