American Lion – Jon Meacham

Jon Meacham’s biography of America’s seventh president picks up in full after his loss to John Quincy Adams in 1824 and plots his comeback to take the presidency in 1828. The story continues throughout Jackson’s two terms detailing the political drama of the mid 19th century as the country expanded west.

“American Lion” was a great book to read prior to touring The Hermitage
