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 et al 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."
