Slide 1:

The Emotions of Andrew Jackson

Slide 2:

Andrew Jackson has always commanded passionate attention. As a frontier lawyer-soldier, he was loved by his friends and hated by his enemies. As president, he was idolized by his followers, who called him the Old Hero, and detested by his opponents, who considered him a despot and pilloried him with some of the most savage cartoons in American political history. Biographers have responded in the same way. James Parton called him a tyrant and blamed him for the start of the political spoils system. Arthur M. Schlesinger, Jr., saw him as an early-day Franklin D. Roosevelt, while Robert V. Remini portrayed him as the founder of American empire, freedom, and democracy. Andrew Burstein offers still a different interpretation.
