Brian Kilmeade and Don Yaeger's newest release, Oct. 3, 2017, "ANDREW JACKSON And the Miracle of New Orleans!" Can hardly lay it down.
I'm reading several other books at the same time - - - my pattern. This is a FUN and Historic grounded book, that reads like a novel.

Profound.

I also have a copy of The T. Garland. Some of the thoughts are a real stretch in my opinion, but then what do I know. Still an interesting read for a tyro like me.
