“It is a damn poor mind that can think of only one way to spell a word.”

― Andrew Jackson

 

James Parton’s biography of the life of Andrew Jackson is one of the most important and best accounts on the early American president. In fact, Bunn and Williams call this work “the first serious biography of the [Jackson].” (Bunn). ‘Life of Andrew Jackson’ is an excellent source on Jackson’s correspondence with other politicians, speeches to public and private audiences, as well as providing many quotes from the president himself.

 

This unique volume was owned and signed by Colonel John A. Hottenstein, a commander of the 13th U.S. Colored Infantry in the Civil War. Hottenstein was the first to run the blockade at Island No. 10 on the Mississippi, and then took possession of the Kentucky shore.  After the battle of Shiloh he took part in the siege of Corinth, and was then ordered to Louisville, and shared in the Buell campaign, then going to Tennessee and Georgia.  He took part in the battles of Stone River, Chattanooga, Mission Ridge and Chicamauga.
