I'm working on reading a biography of each American president. I just finished American Lion by Jon Meacham about Andrew Jackson our 7th president.
I found it interesting to see how so much that was new in Jackson's time is still with us today. For example I didn't realized that before Jackson presidents only used the veto when they believed legislation was unconstitutional.
Jackson was also the first president not from the east coast. He was from Tennessee. Duke and I visited his home, The Hermitage, when we were in Nashville on our honeymoon.
