American Presidents: Andrew Jackson

On October 10, 2015

Andrew Jackson was the focus of Saturday, October 10th’s American Presidents webinar, moderated by Chris Burkett and featuring Jeremy Bailey and Jace Weaver as panelists, with a live teacher audience of over 80. Of particular interest was Jackson’s balance between executive power and his support of states’ rights – something that is often difficult to reconcile. During the discussion two books were mentioned as being particularly good resources for information about Jackson: Presidential Greatness, which has a chapter about Jackson; and Andrew Jackson, by Robert Remini.
