Andrew Jackson

Description

Looking at some of America's most intriguing, beloved, and notorious presidents, Presidential Leaders explores both the professional and personal life of each president and the social issues of their times. Nicknamed Old Hickory, Andrew Jackson was a great general and respected leader. Although hated by some men of wealth, he was beloved by most Americans because of his dedication to hard-working pioneers and soldiers. While Jackson's deeply held convictions and often violent temper made him one of the most forceful and effective presidents in history, it was his deep sense of compassion and honesty that made him the people's president.
