The Papers of Andrew Jackson: A Documentary Edition

Preparation for publication of volumes 12, 13, and 14 of the papers of Andrew Jackson (1767-1845), seventh president of the United States. (36 months)

The Papers of Andrew Jackson is a scholarly project to collect, edit, and publish, in print and online, the extant literary record of the seventh U.S. president. This research is vital for scholars of early U.S. political, social, diplomatic, and military history, and to political scientists, communications scholars, and researchers across the humanities. Our volumes engage with the rise of the U.S. nation-state, its relations with Indigenous nations and European empires, and contested definitions of citizenship, and thus respond to the "More Perfect Union" initiative. We are producing a scholarly edition of Jackson's papers in a seventeen volume bound series that is also available in two electronic formats. To date, we have published eleven volumes, with a twelfth (Volume XII: 1834) nearing completion; after that, we will have five more volumes to go. We expect to complete the full series by roughly 2035. The project URL is: https://thepapersofandrewjackson.utk.edu/.
