Democratic Committee Leaflet

Identifier: MS-3597
Abstract

This four-page leaflet, addressed to Pennsylvania Democrats, explains and defends Andrew Jackson's decision to not send the militia to Georgia in order to free two jailed missionaries. It defends his record on Indian rights and on religious matters, gives an account of the missionaries' case, and provides an extensive survey of pertinent cases to show that calling in the militia would be unconstitutional.
