Summary

Print shows a campaign portrait of Andrew Jackson issued during the presidential election of 1828. An oval bust portrait of Jackson is surrounded by the words "Protector & Defender of Beauty & Booty. Orleans," referring to Jackson's spectacular War of 1812 victory at New Orleans. It is similar in size and format to frontispiece portraits found in the numerous popular biographies of Jackson published during the campaign. Childs based his image on an 1824 painting by Joseph Wood.
