That Jon Meacham would undertake a new study of such a powerful figure whose career has been well documented speaks to his own temerity and skills. Rather than produce another standard biography, however, in American Lion Meacham focuses on Jackson’s presidency, providing readers only a brief summary of Old Hickory’s career from his birth in rural North Carolina through the tumultuous years in which he rose to prominence as a lawmaker and military leader. Meacham’s central thesis is that Jackson was first and foremost a family man. Orphaned as a child, he came to value the concept of “family” in both his personal and political lives. His long-time marriage to Rachel Donelson gave him the stability and comfort to face the rigors of life in the field with his troops and in the halls of state and federal legislatures. Her death just months before he left Tennessee for Washington, D.C., to assume the presidency drove him to fill that void by creating a new family for himself, taking under his wing his nephew and niece, Andrew and Emily Donelson, who went to the capital with him as his personal secretary and as his hostess, respectively. Jackson’s relationship with these two and with his small group of confidants (the majority outside his official cabinet) provided him the kind of family circle, Meacham says, on which he depended in his efforts to transform the presidency. At the same time, Meacham argues, Jackson saw the entire country as his familywith himself serving as a benevolent father figure whose principal responsibility lay in serving their best interests, not the wishes and whims of the Congress.
