In this episode of Biography, the show takes an in-depth look at Andrew Jackson, one of the most colorful men ever to inhabit the White House. Jackson was a man of contradictions, though he sold himself as a man of the people, he was really far wealthier than most citizens and just as removed from them as his opponents. Through a mix of period artwork and expert commentary, this tape shows how Jackson converted military success in the War of 1812 into political capital. Hated by many, his actions nonetheless earned him the adulation of millions and the nickname "Old Hickory." This documentary is carefully conceived and well executed, offering a portrait of a man that goes beyond the usual platitudes to explore the truth often hidden by myth. As such, it is certainly appropriate for use in the college classroom. ~ Rob Ferrier
