    This volume of the Hourly History series wasn't as well written as some of the others I have read. It skipped about far too much, particularly with the President's personal life. Other areas were skipped over far too much, so the little I learned did not feel cohesive. This volume of the Hourly History series wasn't as well written as some of the others I have read.

    Andrew Jackson is probably best known as the general that defeated the British at the Battle of New Orleans on January 8, 1815, thwarting another invasion and ending the War of 1812. In point of fact, peace was negotiated in Belgium (then still part of the United Netherlands) with the signing of the Treaty of Ghent on December 24, 1814. This gaffe was due to slow communication but the impact on American morale was lasting. It helped to soothe the humiliation of the British’s burning of Washingto Andrew Jackson is probably best known as the general that defeated the British at the Battle of New Orleans on January 8, 1815, thwarting another invasion and ending the War of 1812. In point of fact, peace was negotiated in Belgium (then still part of the United Netherlands) with the signing of the Treaty of Ghent on December 24, 1814. This gaffe was due to slow communication but the impact on American morale was lasting. It helped to soothe the humiliation of the British’s burning of Washington on August 24, 1814. Although Jackson had no formal training as a soldier, he made a name and built a popular reputation as an Indian fighter. He led volunteers in campaigns against the Creeks, Cherokees, Chickasaws, Choctaws, and later the Seminoles in Florida. Born into an immigrant family on March 15, 1767, he was orphaned at the age of fourteen and went to live with an uncle. He became a lawyer and practiced in western North Carolina (later becoming the state of Tennessee in 1796). He was also a planter and plantation (The Hermitage) owner. He became the seventh President of the United States, serving two terms from 1829-1837. Jackson was a national hero and much-respected president. He took over the presidency in a time when the young United States was flexing its muscles and was hungry for expansion westward. Jackson, nicknamed Old Hickory due to his strong constitution and tenacity during the Indian Wars, was a man of the people. Common people could identify with him. It is often stated (quite rightly) that history repeats itself. Jackson was a president like no other before him. He was fast at making decisions and tenacious to a fault. He vetoed more bills from Congress than all of his six predecessors, combined. Some of his decisions and choices remain today, controversial. The expulsion of Indian tribes from their hereditary homelands to west of the Mississippi is now viewed as one of the United States most dishonorable actions. As a plantation owner, he was also an owner of slaves and viewed it as an economic necessity rather than a humanitarian travesty. He supported states rights but rejected a central banking system. He believed in a union at all costs but advocated slave state expansion. He loved peace but was the maker of war. In other words, he was a man full of surprises……much like the present president.

    Well written This book was an easy read and kept me captivated to the very end, there were events in Old Hickery's life that were surprising, he was not kind to the Native Americans.

    Well written, I learned more about Jackson than in school. I have to take in consideration . the times but I am disappointed what he did to the Indians. But as a leader and a war hero coming from nothing,is impressive.

    Andrew Jackson: A life from Beginning to End. The book informed me of the very basics of this Presidents life. It reminded me of a really long Book report, slightly better. If you know absolutely nothing about Andrew Jackson, you will come away with some knowledge of the individual. It's a quick read. Andrew Jackson: A life from Beginning to End.

    Needed more of his history and activities and less of the current nonsense of faces on $20 bills. Stick with history and facts and avoid politics.

    General overview okay. Did not like that it did not go more into the corruption, Aaron Burr, Jefferson, etc. of his life and presidency.

    Unorthodox President His Presidency is marred by his "unique" management style. Controversial and firm in his decisions which doesn't follow the norm.

    Good overview of Andrew Jackson I recently finished reading. Hamilton and George Washington by Ron Chernov, while recover ing from an illness during and post the 2016 Presidential Election. Not a fan of this new " president", I saw the portrait of Jackson over Donald Trumps desk and it motivated me to read this. It gave me some insight into Trump's autocratic style of governance. Would recommend these short biographyso to anyone. I will read more. Good overview of Andrew Jackson I recently finished reading.

    I enjoyed reading about this Tennessee president. Interesting discussion at end about Jackson's image being replaced by Harriet Tubman on the $20 bill. Jackson will be on the back. Yet another instance of political correctness gone amok. I enjoyed reading about this Tennessee president.
