The Papers of Andrew Jackson: A Documentary Edition

Preparation for publication of volumes 11, 12, and 13 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 make available the entire extant literary record of the seventh president of the United States. Andrew Jackson was a pivotally important historical actor who remains today a fascinating and deeply polarizing figure. We have conducted an exhaustive worldwide search for documents and are now publishing them in a 17-volume hardbound edition and online in two formats, as open-access searchable volume pdfs and also with advanced integrative search features in the Rotunda Founding Era Collection. This grant will support publication of Volume XI and composition of Volume XII and Volume XIII. These volumes will present an authoritative record of three core years (1833-35) in Jackson's presidency, offering definitive annotated texts of documents on such issues as the Bank War, Indian removal, nullification, slavery and abolition, foreign affairs, and patronage and party-building, as well as on Jackson's highly controversial character.
