Andrew Jackson conqueror of Florida( Visual )

and held by 58 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

He was a national hero, the commander who defeated the British at the Battle of New Orleans in the War of 1812. Five years later, he took on another European superpower in a private campaign that ultimately helped carry him to the White House. The Conquerors reveals how, in 1817, President James Monroe ordered General Jackson to stop Seminole attacks in Georgia. Instructed not to violate Spanish-controlled Florida unless in hot pursuit, Jackson invaded anyway, overthrew the governor, seized the military post at St. Marks, and executed two British citizens for inciting the Seminole. Along the way, he seized runaway slaves and destroyed the so-called "Negro Fort." Jackson's actions caused an international incident, and while some called for his head, Madison backed him and Spain ceded the territory to the United States less than two years later
