Few presidents have been as revered and vilified as Andrew Jackson. Into the twenty-first century, the mere mention of his name in historical circles is certain to draw emotional outbursts of admiration or disdain. In the public realm, while the Hermitage remains the third most visited historic presidential mansion (after Washington’s Mount Vernon and Jefferson’s Monticello), debate continues over whether Old Hickory’s image should be removed from the twenty dollar bill. This complicated man, who championed American democracy and believed in the will of the people as few leaders before or after him, also owned slaves and relocated Indians. He was indeed a man of principle and prejudice.
