Orleans and finally to the White House Capturing Jackson’s outsized life and deep impact on American history Brands also explores his controversial actions from his unapologetic expansionism to the disgraceful Trail of Tears This is a thrilling portrait in full of the president who defined American democracy. ,


Andrew Jackson His Life and TimesA judge and most notably a military eneral and threw his heroism and notoriety the president of United States Although he lived into his 70s he suffered poor health for much of his life In some ways I would judge him to be the Donald Trump of the 1850s He represented the era of the westward expansion of the United States and the democratization of the electorate has so many men achieve the right to vote by becoming property owners the reuirement of that dayThe plight of Native Americans is dealt with significantly throughout the book Jackson fought the Indians and as president but they should be moved west of the Mississi Update These days i feel much less ambiguous about andrew jacksonsuck feel much less ambiguous about Andrew Jacksonsuck Old HickoryThe Hero of New Orleans Old Hickory King Andrew Andrew Jackson s varied sobriuets belie the daunting task for his potential biographers and I think HW Brands managed to rise to the occasion Jackson was most definitely a man who contained multitudes and Brands manages to put it all out there without proselytising It s much difficult to evaluate Andrew Jackson the man than it is the book Aside from the fact that his legend and legacy have #come to represent an array of polarized positions his actions were if not contradictory then #to represent an array of polarized positions his actions were if not contradictory then least somewhat confounding It s hard to reconcile things like his adopting a young Native American boy Lyncoya with his presiding over The Trail of Tears So as per usual I ll just offer some assorted points of interest along the Jackson journey Jackson at WarOne might say that Andrew Jackson was born to fight At the ripe old age of thirteen he joined up with the local militia to take part in the Revolutionary War as a courier Young Jackson was willing to back up his anti British beliefs with action Taken prisoner by His Majesty s men Jackson earned himself a taste of steel or whatever swords were made out of back then by refusing to polish the boots of an enemy officer By the time the War of 1812 rolled around Jackson was in command first of the Tennessee militia and then a bunch of other people too This time in addition to those nefarious Brits Jackson and co were also facing off with the Red Stick Creek Indians At this point lessons had been learned when it came to underestimating the military savvy of the Native populations The 1763 assault on British Fort Michilimackinac the swiftness with which the Indians commenced their attacks and the brutality with which they completed them The Brits were lulled into complacency when a large The Billionaires New Assistant (The New Dominators, group of Ojibwasathered outside the fort for a friendly ame of lacrosse Suddenly in.

I will admit up front to a certain bias against Andrew Jackson I side with many of his contemporary critics on a number of his successes Jackson was a man who believed first and foremost in his own righteousness and infallibility By the time he was president he truly believed that he was the mouthpiece for the people and was perfectly happy to stomp over whatever political or legal barricades were put up to stop himThis book claims to be an unbiased account and there are reviews of it that praise it s objectivity but I can t agree with them Brands does certainly bring up many of Jackson s faults but he doesn t leave it to the reader to decide if those faults were mortal or not he spends a lot of time defending Jackson s actions from Jackson s point of view Ignoring the Supreme Court Well here I paraphrase Jackson really believed it would be better for the indians to live separately from the whites I m sure he did believe that even earnestly But what a silly defense for the Trail of TearsThe positives of this book are that it is thorough and that it does not cover up Jackson s actions just comes up with excuses for him It is not at all impossible to come out of this with up with excuses for him It is not at all impossible to come out of this with conclusion different than the author although I have some major issues with describing Lincoln as a Jacksonian He was an odd Jacksonian because he wasn t a Jacksonian Brands Believing in the Union was not somehow a singularly Jacksonian ideaI don t know if this is the best biography of Jackson out there but it is a ood one I just encourage you to read it with a rain of salt Andrew Jackson His Life and Times is HW Brands s 2005 biography of our seventh president Brands is a professor at the University of Texas at Austin and #A PROLIFIC AUTHOR HE HAS WRITTEN #prolific author He has written thirty books on a wide range of historical topics including biographies of Ulysses Grant Theodore Roosevelt and Aaron Burr He is also the author of one of my favorite non biography history books Lone Star Nation The Epic Story of the Battle for Texas Independence Although I find myself somewhat disappointed by this biography of Jackson it is certainly not without merit Indeed Brands s biography is a solid steady exploration of Jackson s life and its many contradictions and crescendos However after reading several earlier biographies of this preside Andrew Jackson believed in democracy that meant for him the rule of the people and in maintaining the union of all the states He had very little formal education and I thought the book failed to explain how he rose to such Heights in spite of a lack of education He became a lawyer and.
