Myth and Reality

     Andrew Jackson is an iconic figure in American history.  To this day historians debate the merits of the phrase "Jacksonian Democracy".  His roots lay in the backcountry of the Carolinas.  Yet, he was certainly part of the aristocracy.  He was an officer and a gentleman.  There a great number of contradications within his background, his actions, and his policies.  What is certain is that Andrew Jackson did increase the prestige and power of the office of the President of the United States.  Jackson did not act as a mere guardian of the Republic.  Rather, he seized the reigns of power and took decisive action in what he determined to be in the best interest of the Republic.
