First off: you’re welcome. I have decided to replace our last chapter of “founding brothers” with an excerpt from “American Lion,” which looks at the early life of Andrew Jackson. And instead of a writing assignment we will be doing an in class discussion.
Our coverage of Jackson has something for everyone. We are talking troubled childhood of war and death, the absence of a father, a lifelong romance, violence, conflict, rivalries, dirty campaigns, horse racing, a bar girl who marries his ‘bro.’ I love the period and so will you.
I will post the excerpt Tuesday. There is a copy of the book in the library and at the savannah library.
