Conservatives complain about a liberal bias and they are probably right. 
The POV in most textbooks is reflected in Sean Wilentz's body of work. 
The Wikipedia entry for this "leftist" professor states: "His goal was 
to revive the reputation of Andrew Jackson and Jacksonian Democracy, 
which was under attack from the left because of Jackson's support for 
slavery and especially his harshness toward Indians, including his 
forced removals."
