Today in the Sobel Timeline: February 5

On February 5, 1824, President Andrew Jackson returned to Mexico City after conducting his "grand tour" of the United States of Mexico. Starting in April 1823, Jackson visited the capital cities of all six Mexican states, and gave major speeches before their legislatures. He also visited the Indian areas of Mexico del Norte and Arizona. Sobel described Jackson's grand tour as "a resounding success."
