Explore the captivating life of Andrew Jackson!

When Jackson left the White House after two presidential terms, he had achieved a rare feat: He left office with even more popularity than when he first entered it. His reputation as a strong president and a "champion of working-class democracy" has nevertheless been viewed through a more nuanced lens in recent years.

In 2016, President Barack Obama decided to replace Andrew Jackson's visage on the front of the $20 bill with a portrait of abolitionist Harriet Tubman. Meanwhile, current President Donald Trump has repeatedly drawn parallels between himself and Jackson via his infamous Twitter account and public speeches. He even put a portrait of Jackson in the Oval Office and visited his tomb in Nashville shortly after being sworn in.

The present day is thus an apt time for a look into Jackson's divisive life and legacy and that is what this captivating audiobook offers.

Some of the topics covered in this audiobook include:

The war orphanThe gentlemanThe scarlet womanThe congressmanSupreme Court Justice and major generalOld HickorySharp knifeWar heroExpansionPresidential candidateA Tumultuous presidencyJacksonian reformRetirementAnd much more!

    "Har precis startat en provperiod hos Storytel och det är det bästa jag någonsin gjort. Att lyssna ger mig full koncentration på boken samtidigt som jag kan pyssla med annat."

    "Det bästa som har hänt mig på länge. Dessutom lyssnar jag på böcker som jag nog aldrig hade kommit mig för att läsa annars. Jag lyssnar i bilen, på promenaden eller när jag städar."
