A Hero or Villain

Eighth Grade Students on the Liberty Team have been debating whether our 7th President, Andrew Jackson, could be considered a hero or a villain.  Facts have been presented to support each side of the case.

Let's see, there's Old Hickory, the brave war hero, the self-made man, the People's President....and then there's the hot-tempered, aggressive President who rarely took advice from anyone and who was to blame for the Indian Removal Act and the Spoils System.

What do YOU think?
