“Our Union, it must be preserved!” Jackson’s famous toast points to the slavery issue boiling below the surface of his presidency setting North and South on a collision course. Dramatizing events in Jackson’s two terms, this program covers South Carolina’s nullification threat, the Cherokee question, Nat Turner’s rebellion, the Peggy Eaton affair, the banking crisis, and the gag rule controversy. Besides the abrasive Jackson, realistic portrayals of Calhoun, Webster, Adams, Van Buren, and Clay enliven this look at tough men and tough issues.
