Good, Evil, and the Presidency

Martin Sheen narrates a startlingly relevant examination of the seventh president that asks whether Americans should celebrate Jackson or apologize for him. A man of many contradictions, Jackson was a war hero, a political trailblazer (he helped found the Democratic Party and was the first to use early mass-media techniques in a presidential race), a champion of the "common man," and the owner of over 100 slaves. Reenactments, lithographs, and letters dovetail with insights from a distinguished and diverse group of historians. Logical segment breaks facilitate in-class viewing. Grades 7 and up. Closed captioned. Color and black-and-white. 120 minutes. KCET. ©2007.
