Perhaps America's most celebrated 19th-century icon, Andrew Jackson cut a unique political swath in two terms as president, angering foes and perplexing supporters. Two centuries later, Jackson remains an enigma: war hero and common killer, a champion of the common man who owned slaves. This intriguing documentary offers an unvarnished portrait of a leader frequently larger than life.
