ADDRESS OF THE JACKSON STATE CONVENTION TO THE PEOPLE OF MARYLAND, ON THE LATE AND APPROACHING ELECTION OF PRESIDENT. Andrew Jackson.

ADDRESS OF THE JACKSON STATE CONVENTION TO THE PEOPLE OF MARYLAND, ON THE LATE AND APPROACHING ELECTION OF PRESIDENT.

Baltimore: Printed at the Jackson Press, 1827. 19, [1] pp. Large 8vo. Untrimmed, partly loosened, some dusting. Good+.

Listing the Members of the Jackson State Convention of the People of Maryland [headed by Roger B. Taney], this unusual pamphlet is an angry blast at the two miscreants who stole the election from Jackson in 1824: John Quincy Adams, who won in the electoral college though Jackson had the popular plurality; and Henry Clay, whose cunning and unscrupulous intrigue handed Adams the plums of office.
Taney and the Convention reject the argument that Jackson is disqualified by his history as a "military chieftain:" for, they say, "so was WASHINGTON, the FATHER of his country."
