He rocketed to fame as a blood and guts commander who allied himself with pirates and scoundrels. He rode his legend all the way to the White House. He earned his nickname commanding a motley army to some of the greatest victories in the War of 1812. He secured his place in history by dramatically redefining the role of the president in American government.

Andrew Jackson is one of the most important figures in the history of America. The first commoner to hold the presidency, he was in fact an extremely wealthy man as far removed from the average citizen as his political opponents were. But he didn't let that stop him from selling himself as the champion of the common man.

BIOGRAPHY® uses extensive expert commentary and period art and accounts to piece together the definitive story of "Old Hickory." See how he parlayed his military success into political power, and how his bold and unwavering leadership won him the adulation of millions, along with the enmity of political opponents who decried the actions of "King Andrew."

This is a revealing portrait of America's seventh president, who lived his life according to the principle that "One man with courage makes a majority."
