Dan Feller will be presenting : "Editing Andrew Jackson: His Papers and His Relevance"

"Andrew Jackson has been much in the news of late.  The Andrew Jackson Papers project is compiling and publishing the complete documentary record of his controversial presidency, uncovering new information on Indian removal, nullification, the Bank War, and more.  Along the way, the project also solves mysteries, exposes forgeries, and helps to catch thieves.  In this illustrated presentation. Daniel Feller, project director and Professor of History at the University of Tennessee, explains how the project works, what it has found, and why it matters."
