Taylor Goldsmith Andrew Jackson is a household name. Most people know him as the seventh president of the United States of America, but his other accomplishments seem to be unknown to the world unless you have studied history. In the book Andrew Jackson and the Search for Vindication, it describes his life from birth to death. This book has a few different themes in it other than just explaining the main events in his life, including much about his presidency. These themes include Andrew Jackson’s involvement in important national events, his hypocritical ways, and the women that held great importance in his life. One of the major events that Jackson took part in was the battle around the friendly village of Talladega. This battle was a strike on the Indian force that was thirty miles to the south of where Jackson’s camp was originally set up. Jackson decided to lure the Indians into a trap and deploy his infantry into a crescent shaped line with his cavalry on the sides of it. During this battle, Jackson was satisfied with the fact that he murdered nearly three hundred Indians. However, he lost fifteen of his own men and eighty-five of them left wounded. The second major event that Andrew Jackson partook in was the War of 1812. He started this fight in New Orleans where he looked only like a boy. However, he was ruthless and refused to accept any blame for the success that the British had on his right bank.
