    Like every American president, Andrew Jacksonís legacy is up for debate. In this book I try to put aside personal bias and preconceived notions to give a fair look at Jacksonís eight turbulent years in the White House. In doing so I found there were two different Jacksons. There was the traditional Jackson who won the Bank War and thwarted nullification and then there was the unsure and sensitive Jackson who craved friendship and loyalty. Historians have described Jackson as everything from a criminal dictator to heroic patriot. Iíll let you judge where the truth lies.
