In this talk we hear why our constitution may be more Jacksonian than we have been taught. Amar discusses why our constitution could be considered more democratic, perhaps more supportive towards slavery than intended (evidenced by the Civil War), and more supportive of national security. This is the fifth lecture in the Teach-In on America’s Founding presented by the University of Oklahoma.
