Political rivals Andrew Jackson and Henry Clay shaped American politics during the first half of the nineteenth century. Through a clear narrative and primary documents, the student is introduced to the political context, the language and debates of the day, in which the two men arose as spokesmen for their opposing parties, with widely differing views of democratic government.
