Andrew Jackson founded the Democratic Party. He was also the man behind the Trail of Tears. He was a war hero who was also described as America’s Napoleon.

His is the face on the $20 bill, but will soon be replaced by Harriet Tubman, wonderfully explained by Samantha Bee.

This PBS documentary delves into the complex mind and life of the U.S.’s seventh president.
