The "Great Meeting of the People" sought "relief from the present pecuniary distress" about a year into Jackson's second term. It blames the country's financial upheavals on his removal of the federal deposits and urges him to "return the Government Deposites to the Bank of the United States." Organizers of the Meeting record their recent interview with Jackson, who made clear that he would never restore the deposits to the "monstrous" Bank of the United States which, in his view, was an unconstitutional entity. The usual charges abound: once again Jackson is guilty of "usurpation."
