Andrew Jackson (1767–1845 CE) was both beloved and loathed during his presidency. In this imaginary courtroom, you get to be the jury, considering and weighing Jackson's part in the spoils system, economic depression, and the Indian Removal Act (1830 CE), as well as his patriotism and the pressures of the presidency. James Fester explores how time shapes our relationship to controversial historical figures.
