Andrew Jackson and His Indian Wars by Robert V. Remini

The expulsion of Native Americans from the eastern half of the continent to the Indian Territory beyond the Mississippi River is one of the most notorious events in U.S. history and the single most controversial aspect of Andrew Jacksons presidency. Preeminent Jacksonian scholar Robert Remini now provides a thoughtful analysis of the entire story of Jacksons wars against the Indians, from his first battles with the Cherokees and Creeks to his presidential years, when he helped establish the Indian Territory in Oklahoma and, as a result, the Trail of Tears. This is at once an exuberant work of American history and a sobering reminder of the violence and darkness at the heart of our nations past. Vividly written and often harrowing . . . Remini recounts Jacksons exploits . . . with riveting narrative prose. (Michael Holt, Chicago Tribune) When it comes to Jackson . . . there are few who have such a masterly command of the sources as Mr. Remini [who] kept me up late at night reading and causing me to wonder why, with narrative history such as this, anyone bothers to read historical novels. (Roger D. McGrath, The Wall Street Journal
