Jon Meacham: Andrew Jackson Was Capable of 'Great Evil'
National Constitution Center - National Constitution Center
At a moment when the American public is focused on the presidency and how presidents lead the nation, the National Constitution Center welcomes back Newsweek editor Jon Meacham for a discussion about his remarkable biography of President Andrew Jackson.Orphan, battle-hardened warrior, founder of the Democratic Party, and architect of the modern presidency, Jackson rose from nothing to the pinnacle of power. American Lion: Andrew Jackson in the White House is an exciting portrait of one of our most important, yet least remembered presidents.Richard Beeman, professor of history at the University of Pennsylvania, moderates - National Constitution Center
