9780195006995: Andrew Jackson: Symbol for an Age (Galaxy Books)

Was the man who lent his name to "Jacksonian America" a rough-hewn frontiersman? A powerful, victorious general? Or merely a man of will? Separating myth from reality, John William Ward here demonstrates how Andrew Jackson captured the imagination of a generation of Americans and came to represent not just leadership but the ideal of courage, foresight, and ability.

From the Back Cover:

Every age creates heroes to suit its needs. For young, pioneering America of the early nineteenth century, Andrew Jackson filled that need. This book shows how Jackson captured the imagination of his contemporaries and how the ideals of the period were fused in him. It is, therefore, a study of Jackson's time rather than a simple study of the man.

Review:


"A unique treatment of this popular figure and of the age in which he lived....[Andrew Jackson] is an important contribution to the understanding of our past behavior and hence of our present."--The Pennsylvania Magazine of History and Biography
