This month the Tennessee Book Club will read Jacksonland: President Andrew Jackson, Cherokee Chief John Ross, and a Great American Land Grab by Steve Inskeep.
In celebration of the 225th anniversary of Tennessee becoming a state, our 2021 Book Club series will feature books chosen by Tennessee State Museum curators. This selection was made by curators Debbie Shaw and Rob DeHart. They will also participate in the discussion.
Jacksonland is the thrilling narrative history of two men, President Andrew Jackson and Cherokee chief John Ross, who led their respective nations at a crossroads of American history. Five decades after the Revolutionary War, the United States approached a constitutional crisis. At its center stood two former military comrades locked in a struggle that tested the boundaries of our fledgling democracy. Jacksonland is their story.
