    One thought on “Andrew Jackson and His Indian Wars”

    1. Robert Remini s goal for his work Andrew Jackson and His Indian Wars are stated simply, to explain what happened and why He prefaces this however, by saying, that it is not my intention to excuse or exonerate Andrew Jackson for the role he played in the removal of Native Americans west of the Mississippi River He goes on to note that it is important for Americans to view history through the eyes of those living through it It is easy to make judgements about motivation through a modern lens, but [...]

    2. As one might expect, a dismal read As anyone with the most passing acquaintance with Jackson s history knows, the chief architect of the Trail of Tears has much to answer for Remini jumps head first into the issue I complained that his Jackson trilogy let Old Hickory off too easily To some extent, that is remedied here The first lines of the book insist that his purpose is not to excuse Jackson, but to explain him That explanation, at least as it pertains to Jackson s Indian policy, is largely b [...]

    3. Although it is fashionable to pooh pooh the founders, this account presents the man as a product of his time and place Highly effective book.

    4. Very good read Although Remini clearly doesn t want to portray Jackson in too negative a light, his storytelling prowess is brilliant Read for American History.

    5. Although Americans are prone to refer to Jackson as Old Hickory or, in his day, as the Hero , the Indian tribes of his day gave him the nickname of Sharp Knife This nickname was based upon Jackson s unrelenting warfare against the Creek Indians, particularly at the Battle of Horseshoe Bend in 1814 The distinguished American historian, Robert Remini, shows in this careful and thorough study of Jackson and the Indians that the sobriquet was indeed well deserved His book is a thorough and careful e [...]

    6. I feel it was a good overview of Jackson and his interaction with Native Americans The author does a good job conveying the fact that what we consider racist today, just was not the same back then.As a Choctaw, this story was painful to listen to As an American, this story is disgusting in the way progression destroyed a culture and brought pain and misery to millions Finally, the book does a great job of identifying that regardless of Jackson, the outcome to the Native peoples would have happen [...]

    7. I like books that challenge common thought This certainly did I learned in school that Jackson was a rabid Indian hater The whole country was way hateful than Jackson That was the norm of the day Jackson wanted the Indians gone just like everybody else He tried to work with the Indians as best he could today s standards would be deemed unlawful and repugnant But the 1840 s aren t today.I wonder if Patton has ever been compared to Jackson

    8. I m very glad I read this book I learned a great deal of history, all of which made me quite sad The evils of white supremacy and the violations of human rights because of it should be learned and never forgotten There are many things in this book I should have learned in school and when I visited the Hermitage.

    9. An excellent job of portraying Andrew Jackson as a complex individual and explaining what led him to implement his Indian Removal Act of 1830 A fascinating, if at times disturbing, read.
