Catriona's War - Jean Grainger - A Short Summary and Review

American Lion: Andrew Jackson in the White House - Jon Meacham - A Short Summary & Review

A short summary of Jon Meacham's book American Lion:

Just Jackson's presidency.

My favorite Andrew Jackson quote from the book:

"Always take all the time to reflect that circumstances permit, but when the time for action has come, stop thinking"



Questions to ponder while reading American Lion:

What is your opinion of the Jackson presidency?

Did you realize how large the succession issue was prior to the Emancipation Proclamation?


My thoughts about American Lion:

Beefy and full of details.

A good look into a controversial president.

A long look into a controversial president.
