Summary
"Long before he became the seventh president of the United States, Andrew Jackson waged a bloody campaign to gain lasting American control of the Old Southwest--the huge territory that stretched from the Appalachians to the Mississippi and from the Ohio River to the Gulf of Mexico. Under the Peace of Paris of 1783, most of this vast country had already been ceded to the United States by Great Britain. But from the Creeks and the Seminoles to the Choctaws, Chickasaws, and the Cherokees, the powerful, unconquered tribes who lived there refused to recognize a scrap of paper written in Paris. The pivotal struggle that ensued over much of the next three decades would end in an Indian war that would make Jackson one of the most controversial men in American history" -- inside cover
Summary
A popular history of Jackson's campaign to gain lasting American control of the Old Southwest territory that stretched from the Appalachians to the Mississippi and from the Ohio River to the Gulf of Mexico. The struggle with the territory's powerful Native tribes lasted nearly three decades and ended in an Indian war that made Jackson one of the most controversial men in US history. It's a narrative of people's obsession with land and Jackson's quest for an empire in a period that is frequently overshadowed in our time by images of Indians, cavalry, and cowboys West of the Mississippi. Buchanan is a former archivist (Cornell U.) and the author of The Road to Guilford Courthouse . Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
