THE JACKSON YEARS: The New Americans
The Shaping of the American Nation
Half horse, half alligator, Andy Jackson embodied the common man. This rollicking program opens in a Washington theater on inauguration eve. Stage tableaus and vivid dramatizations portray episodes from Jackson’s life—his duel with Charles Dickinson, fighting the Creeks at Horseshoe Bend, besting the British at New Orleans, and driving Spain out of Florida. Scenes with Monroe, Adams, Calhoun, Webster, Clay and others combine with de Tocqueville’s words to flavor events and set the historical scene.
