Andrew Jackson Revisited | Zinn Education Project

What does it tell us about the Trump administration that Andrew Jackson’s portrait now hangs prominently in the Oval Office? As Howard Zinn explained, “Jackson was a land speculator, merchant, slave trader, and the most aggressive enemy of the Indians in early American history.” #PresidentsDay #TeachOutsideTextbook
Not a teacher? You can still bring this history to the classroom by making a donation today to the Zinn Education Project so that we can make these lessons available to teachers and students everywhere. We need your help: https://zinnedproject.org/donate/
