    " Very interesting information as the pettyness that existed wtihin Washington even back then. Also, information relatvie to the forced movement of the various Indian tribes that ultimately resulted in thousands of people perishing. "

    " This was a book on tape I started a while back and finally finished. I really enjoyed it when I started it but I think it became a bit tiresome to finish. (probably just because it took me so long to find time to finish) It was very interesting and I learned a lot. I was really frustrated with Jackson's handling of the Indians but was impressed at his love for his country. I felt both love and hate for his "my way" attitudes but can see how that drive really made him who he was. I wish his strong belief that the country should have no dept would have been passed on to future presidents. He had us free and clear. Where did we go wrong from there? "
