Andrew Jackson approached the presidency differently from his predecessors. He was the first president from “the West,” and he believed passionately that the president should represent all citizens and not just a few. Harry Truman often listed him as one of his favorite presidents, stating as follows, “He wanted sincerely to look after the little fellow who had no pull, and that’s what a president is supposed to do.” In Jackson’s eight years in office, he was responsible for balancing the federal budget for the first and only time in history and helping to expand the nation’s territory, not without controversy along the way.

Join us for a free public program featuring Howard Kittell, President & CEO of Andrew Jackson’s Hermitage, to explore Jackson’s fabled history and the legacy that surrounds him today.

This is a free public program funded in part by generous grants from the Missouri Humanities Council and the Arvin Gottlieb Charitable Foundation, UMB Bank, n.a., Trustee.
