FRAMINGHAM – Framingham Public Library and Framingham State University will hold a Lifelong learning lecture on Thursday, January 20 at 7 p.m. on President Andrew Jackson via Zoom.
Andrew Jackson was arguably one of the most controversial figures of his day.
To his supporters, he was the champion of the common person; to his critics, he was ‘’King Andrew The First’’.
This lecture is presented by David Smailes, Associate Professor, Political Science and Program Coordinator, Master of Public Administration, Framingham State University.
Join the lecture, to learn what made Jackson’s presidency different, why his legacy continues to shape the presidency today and why such diverse figures as Franklin Roosevelt and Donald Trump found inspiration from Jackson for their own presidencies.
