Andrew Jackson And The Cumberland Character

Flowering of the Cumberland, by Harriette Simpson Arnow:

"One could go on with a long list of other contradictions [personified by Andrew Jackson] and ponderings on the roots of this and that. It is much easier and pleasanter merely to look at the life in the Cumberland Country after the ending of the Indian Wars, for it was not enough to take the land and hold it, first and early settling families shaped the pattern of a world, much of which still endures."
