Andrew Jackson, Sam Houston, and David Crockett had much in common: their familial/ancestral ties, character, mannerisms, political/social outlook, and how they shaped the fabric of the United States of America all had similar strains of not only the American West, but also of Ulster, Ireland. The 10th volume in a series of Scots-Irish Chronicles which details ties to the 18th century American frontier, this book paints a portrait of these three men as Scots-Irish archetypes-men who lived for Manifest Destiny & mobility, settled in traditional migration/settlement patterns, and rose from humble, relatively uneducated origins to great heights. Chronologies, portraits of the men's wives or mothers, and chapters on the "Ulster Connection" as well as other Scots-Irish American men are included. Readers will find some typographical errors. 199 indexed pages, softcover.
