As I reread some history in preparation for my exam tomorrow, I find myself a bit confused. Why on earth did we decide to name ourselves after Andrew Jackson? Okay, okay so maybe Jacksonville is a prettier name than Cowford (but honestly, how was that name even in the running??) But of all presidents to get your name from....Jackson? Really? A man that my book calls violent and vindictive, who ignored his cabinet members only to listen to his "buddies" and was also a supporter of the Indian Removal Act, which resulted in the Trail of Tears.
You confuse me sometimes Jacksonville.
very annoyed and confused.
PS. say hi to my study buddy for the day :)
