Every age creates heroes to suit its needs. For young, pioneering America of the early nineteenth century, Andrew Jackson filled that need. This book shows how Jackson captured the imagination of his contemporaries and how the ideals of the period were fused in him. It is, therefore, a study of Jackson's time rather than a simple study of the man.  See more details below
