Bloody Bloody Andrew Jackson is an irreverent, exhilarating, hilarious romp through American history, following our nation’s first rock star president, Andrew Jackson. Mirroring the current populist landscape, we trace Jackson’s life from rural, impoverished Tennessee upbringing, to early successes against British blowhards, Spanish sissies, and those pesky Native Americans, deep into political rabble-rousing, and eventually, to the American presidency. With an infectious rock score and an intelligent, anachronistic book, Bloody Bloody Andrew Jackson offers a new perspective on the American impulse to fight for exactly what we want; no matter what, or who, may be in the way.
