Andrew 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.
