Martin Sheen narrates a startlingly relevant examination of the seventh president that asks whether Americans should celebrate Jackson or apologize for him.

A man of many contradictions, Jackson was a war hero, a political trailblazer (he helped found the Democratic Party and was the first to use early mass-media techniques in a presidential race), a champion of the "common man," and the owner of over 100 slaves. Reenactments, lithographs, and letters dovetail with insights from a distinguished and diverse group of historians. Logical segment breaks facilitate in-class viewing.
