Sale: $9.98

Andrew Jackson is one of the most controversial figures in Florida history.  He invaded Pensacola, the capital of Spanish-controlled Florida, during the War of 1812.  He was commander of military operations during the First Seminole War, and his Indian Removal policies sparked the Second Seminole War.  He briefly served as the first territorial governor of Florida.

No other person is more closely associated with the “Americanization” of Florida and its transformation from Spanish borderland to Deep South frontier.  Jackson’s military expeditions ended both Spanish and Native American control over Florida’s Big Bend and Panhandle areas.  From his own time to the present, opinion is divided on whether he deserves praise or condemnation for his actions.

This book includes scholarly perspectives previously published in the, Florida Historical Quarterly important primary source documents from Jackson’s time, and new original analysis from contemporary scholars reflecting upon Jackson’s legacy.
