General Jackson (Barnes & Noble Digital Library) by James Parton

Just before his death, the popular American biographer completed the tumultuous life story of America’s seventh President, in all its color and scope. Here are Old Hickory’s childhood, education, law career, duels, military battles, and political campaigns. Parton covers Jackson’s nation-shaping presidency from candidacy to retirement, including the “terror [he struck] among the office-holders.”
