The Papers of Andrew Jackson

Jackson PortraitAndrew Jackson was of one of the most critical and controversial figures in American history.  The dominant actor on the American scene in the half-century between Thomas Jefferson and Abraham Lincoln, Jackson lent his name first to a political movement, then to an era, and finally to democracy itself.

The Papers of Andrew Jackson is a project to collect and publish Jackson’s entire extant literary record.

The project is now producing a series of seventeen volumes that will bring Jackson’s most important papers to the public in easily readable form.

The Papers of Andrew Jackson is sponsored by the University of Tennessee-Knoxville and supported by grants from the National Historical Publications and Records Commission, the National Endowment for the Humanities, and the Tennessee Historical Commission.
