Best book on Andrew Jackson?
Preferably one that doesn’t bitch about “muh Indians” or make him sound like a villain. Baw was probably the second best president we had: saved us from Britain pt 2, shut down the banks (why he’s painted as a controversial historical figure), and survived a shite ton of gunshots.


Books on war of 1812 would suffice

Several books by Robert Remini on Jackson, Battle of New Orleans, and the time period in America in general.
Very readable by a legit historian.
Respected and professional historian that would not be welcome in 2021 academia. He doesnt treat Jackson as Satan.

You may have to look in a library to find it, but Magnificent Destiny by one of my favorite western authors, Paul Wellman

It's actually a historical novel about the relationship between Jackson and Sam Houston



Just checked Amazon. The used hardback is reasonably priced, but the new paperback is $768!!!

The single volume one by Remini is outstanding if you want to read about his whole life. I believe American Lion focuses more on his presidency. His earlier life was awesome too.

Not just one book but Robert Remini's trilogy is probably still the definitive bio. I read the first two books years back; not sure why I never got to the third.

Checking his Wikipedia, I see that Remini wrote a one-volume abridgement of the three volume set in 1988. The Life of Andrew Jackson if you can find it.
