Expanding our partnership with the UVA Press’s Rotunda, CPC has added the Papers of Andrew Jackson to its collection. The Papers of Andrew Jackson is a documentary editing project at the University of Tennessee Knoxville. The project has published nine volumes of Jackson’s papers from 1770 to 1831. It anticipates that 17 volumes will be published before the project is done. Dr. Daniel Feller, a professor of history at UT Knoxville, is the director of the papers project.
Rotunda, UVA’s digital imprint, has published the digital version of the Jackson’s papers as part of its American Founding Era collection. The Jackson papers join other presidential papers such as those of George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, and James Madison. Andrew Jackson is one of the most important presidents in American history. He was a transformative figure between the presidencies of Thomas Jefferson and Abraham Lincoln, remembered for founding the Democratic Party and for expanding the powers of the presidency. We are excited to have added this valuable collection to CPC!
