Jackson's famous 'Maysville Road' veto. "Reviewing the history of internal improvements legislation, conceding that millions had been appropriated and every president since Jefferson had approved these measures, Jackson said they had always been held to the test of national character; and the present bill for a road between two points in Kentucky failed to meet this test. He went on to express opposition to any general system of internal improvements. The message jarred Congress. It threw the government back half a century, said the Intelligencer." Peterson Great Triumvirate 195.
