1478 Andrew Jackson and the Course of American Empire, 1767-1821, by Robert V. Remini (read 27 Jan 1978) This is the first book of Remini's monumental trilogy on Jackson. It is an excellent study, though it did not excite admiration for Jackson too much. I liked John Quincy Adams better. But the book has many good points--I must admit I had never really known the picture involved in the battle of New Orleans until I read this book. The book is really well-done. The second volume had not yet been published when I read this volume. [Those volumes are:
1868 Andrew Jackson and the Course of American Freedom, 1822-1832 Volume II, by Robert V. Remini (read 15 Sept 1984)
1869 Andrew Jackson and the Course of American Democracy, 1833-1845, by Robert V. Remini (read 27 Sept 1984) (National Book Award nonfiction prize for 1984)]
But this period of American history interests me a lot [and still does today]. ( )
