Summary
"Andrew Jackson was a volatile man whose sole claim on the American public's affections derived from his victory in a thirty-minute battle at New Orleans in early 1815. Yet those in his immediate circle believed he was a great leader who should be president of the United States. In 'The Rise of Andrew Jackson' eminent historians David and Jeanne Heidler chronicle the making of America's first anti-establishment candidate. We are usually told that Jackson's election to the presidency in 1828 was the result of the expansion of democracy, but as the Heidlers argue, he in fact owed his victory to his closest confidants, who founded newspapers to savage his enemies and wrote fawning biographies of him in their attempt to transform a difficult man into a paragon of republican virtue. The Heidlers take us from political rallies on the western frontier, where boisterous Jackson supporters enjoyed barbecue and whiskey, to the backrooms of hotels and meeting halls, where Jackson's men won pledges of loyalty. They reveal the crucial roles played by Jackson's associates, including John Overton, his oldest friend, and a young Martin Van Buren, the most brilliant political strategist of his day. The Jacksonites were so successful that many Americans came to see Jackson as another George Washington, and they turned out in droves to vote for him. [This book] tells the absorbing story of how Jackson and his men exploded the political order of the founding generation -- and how they invented a style of electioneering that has been mimicked ever since." -- container
