Description

Andrew Jackson, hero of the Battle of New Orleans and co-founder of the Democratic Party, served as our nation’s seventh President.  As the first Populist President, he was considered the “People’s President.”  He fought Indians, barely survived a duel, and as President, stood firm against South Carolina’s threats to secede, opposed the National Bank, defied the Supreme Court and supported the Indian Removal Act.  Blaine Davies explores the fascinating life of our first Populist President, including some interesting comparisons between Andrew Jackson and Donald Trump, who proudly displays a portrait of Andrew Jackson in the Oval Office.
