This is not the best written or most fascinating book, but it is a well researched book and a worthy investment of time. The governmental partisanship & trashing of the constitution in the early 19th century helps me understand similar nonsense today. The tragedy of the Creeks, Seminoles and Cherokees is unbelievable.

The book that places Andrew Jackson in his villainous place.
