The Papers of Andrew Jackson: A Documentary Edition

Preparation for publication of volumes 10, 11, and 12 of the papers of Andrew Jackson (1767-1845), seventh president of the United States. (36 months)

The Papers of Andrew Jackson is a project to collect and publish the extant literary record of the seventh president. We have conducted an exhaustive worldwide search for documents and produced a comprehensive microfilm with accompanying Guide & Index, now posted on our website. We are publishing a 17-volume printed edition, of which the eight presidential volumes now in production make up the heart. This grant will support composition of the fourth through sixth presidential volumes, numbers 10 through 12 in the whole series, covering the years 1832 through 1834. Fully annotated and indexed, and including many documents hitherto unknown, this series will provide an authoritative record of Jackson's presidency and advance our understanding of a vast array of related subjects. In 2015 the University of Virginia Press's Rotunda imprint will incorporate all our published volumes in a Jackson Papers digital edition, cross-searchable with other Founding Era and Early Republic editions.
