Andrew Jackson’s Presidency
Drawing on information from the textbook, online lecture notes, and at least two substantive online web sources of your choice (may use more), evaluate Andrew Jackson’s presidency. Be sure to discuss his political philosophy; his successes and failures in both domestic and foreign affairs (with specific examples) as the seventh president of the United States; and his lasting legacy in America’s political culture. Please note: This is an evaluative essay (not a biographical essay) in which the focus of your essay should be on Jackson’s presidential leadership.
