I decided to do a series of comparison lists of histories over-rated and under-rated as they relate to each other. This list is political and military leaders.
Some of the comparisons require a little thought. For example, Hamilton and Jackson. Hamilton is the most respected financial pioneer in American History, but Andrew Jackson is the only President to eliminate National debt and operate a trade surplus, so Jackson is under-rated as compared to Hamilton.
