This week is a continuation of the series on Andrew Jackson and this time I am welcoming a special guest, Jerry from the Presidencies of the United States Podcast.
Andrew Jackson has a complicated and nuanced legacy. He was the original outsider and man of the people; he was a man who held tightly to his sense of honor and was unafraid to fight for what he believed in. His was also the administration that put a mighty steak through the heart of the indigenous tribes who lived within territory white settlers desperately wanted for cultivating cotton.
Jerry and I sit down and discuss the complicated legacy that is Andrew Jackson. What got him to the White House? How did he take advantage of the moment to propel himself into the highest office of the land? And how do we deal with his complicated legacy?
