One of Remini's major strengths is his ability to give such accurate information about these issues. For example, in chapter 3, Remini talks about Jackson's policies towards the "removalaE of the Native Americans that were east of the Mississippi River.

Remini also talked about the hard fought battles on the frontier to remove the Natives westward. He also gave a brief description about the "Trail of TearsaE in which about 4,000 Natives were killed on an 800-mile hike westward. The way Remini explained this issue so thoroughly in a matter of 12 pages is very impressive. Even though it was a brief description, it was filled with so much detail that the important points were explained very validly.
