UT’s Andrew Jackson Project Adds Tenth Online Volume
July 17, 2018

The Papers of Andrew Jackson project at the University of Tennessee gathers and publishes the papers of America’s seventh president. A tenth volume of Jackson’s papers is now available online.

Since 1971, the project has been dedicated to transcribing and publishing Old Hickory’s entire written record. A worldwide search has gathered copies of every known surviving Jackson document, including letters he wrote and received, official and military papers, presidential addresses, drafts, memoranda, legal papers, and financial records.

UT Press publishes The Papers of Andrew Jackson, and Newfound Press (an online imprint of the UT Libraries) makes searchable and downloadable PDF versions available online. Volumes of The Papers of Andrew Jackson — including the latest volume consisting of documents from 1832 — are accessible through UT’s online archive at trace.tennessee.edu/utk_jackson.

The Jackson documents also are available as The Papers of Andrew Jackson Digital Edition, part of the American Founding Era Collection hosted by the University of Virginia Press Rotunda. The platform allows users to search the full edition, to limit searches to individual volumes, or to search across all the editions in the American Founding Era Collection, including the papers of George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, James Madison, Alexander Hamilton, John Adams, and other major figures of the nation’s early history. The Papers of Andrew Jackson Digital Edition also includes direct links from over 1400 transcribed and cited documents in the edition to images of the original manuscripts in the Library of Congress.

Thanks to a subscription by the UT Libraries, the faculty, students, and staff of UT Knoxville have access to the entire American Founding Era Collection. Members of the public may use the American Founding Era Collection on campus at the Hodges, Pendergrass, or DeVine libraries.

The Papers of Andrew Jackson is supported by the College of Arts and Sciences at the University of Tennessee, the National Historical Publications and Records Commission, the National Endowment for the Humanities, and the Tennessee Historical Commission. The next volume of The Papers of Andrew Jackson is due for publication in 2019.
