The Andrew Jackson Presidency
You've seen his face on a crisp $20 bill but what do you really know about Andrew Jackson? Known for his hatred of the bank system, owning hundreds of enslaved people, and the first President with an assassination attempt on him, he is still viewed as a controversial President. One biographer had this to say: "Andrew Jackson, I am given to understand, was a patriot and a traitor. He was one of the greatest of generals, and wholly ignorant of the art of war." A follow up to the "Andrew Jackson and the Trail of Tears" workshop, we invite you to join us as we take a closer look at his Presidency and later life.
