Two-hour (90 minute program time) HISTORY CHANNEL special exploring the life of one of America's most controversial presidents. A hero to many (as the result of defeating the British army at the Battle of New Orleans), Jackson was and continues to be scorned by the Native American community for his efforts to force tribes farther and farther West during his presidency, resulting in the infamous tragic "Trail of Tears". Both American and Native American historians contribute to providing a balanced portrait of the man known as "Old Hickory" for his strong will and lifelong passion as a military and political leader.
