The Right Side of History: Brian Kilmeade Explains Why We Should Admire Andrew Jackso

On 11.13.17 12:50 PM posted by Fred Lucas

“The Right Side of History” is a podcast dedicated to exploring current events through a historical lens and busting left-wing myths about figures and events of America’s past.

On this week’s episode, hosts Jarrett Stepman, a contributor to The Daily Signal, and Fred Lucas, The Daily Signal’s*White House correspondent talk about the legacy of Andrew Jackson and how he permanently changed American politics. President Donald Trump has frequently mentioned a connection between himself and the 19th-century president. A portrait of Old Hickory, as Jackson was called by admirers, hangs in the Oval Office.

Brian Kilmeade, the bestselling author and co-host of Fox & Friends, joined the show to talk about his new book, “Andrew Jackson and the Miracle of New Orleans: The Battle That Shaped America’s Destiny.” The Battle of New Orleans was a defining moment in the history of the United States, in which a little-known American general leading a rag-tag group of militia, pirates, and regular*soldiers defeated a professional British army that had beaten*Napoleon.

The American victory stunned the world, and launched Jackson to international fame and the White House. Kilmeade discusses why Jackson’s leadership was admired by his countrymen and how he ultimately defined his age.
