Andrew Jackson

I received the book Andrew Jackson, His Life and Times, by H.W. Brands for Christmas. What an interesting character, especially to become president.  An orphaned teen, a lawyer, senator, militia general fighting natives and the English Army, Senator, slave-holder, farmer, Justice, and then president.  I thought the book was well written and provided a good portrait of the early 1800s.
