A BRIEF ACCOUNT OF THE EXECUTION OF THE SIX MILITIA MEN [caption title]
[Philadelphia: Office of the Democratic Press, 1828. Broadside, 14 1/2 x 9 3/4 inches. Old fold lines. Tanned with light foxing. Very good. An anti-Jackson campaign broadside, issued in the violent and libelous proceedings of the 1828 presidential race. This broadside is decorated with woodcuts of six coffins to illustrate the six Tennessee militia men who were executed for mutiny during the New Orleans campaign. The text gives a pitiful account of their death, including sympathy provoking quotes from the moments before the execution. The "six militia men" story appeared in many forms, dogging Jackson throughout his political career. In fact, the soldiers were ringleaders in a dangerous mutiny, which any other military commander of the time would have suppressed in the same fashion. SHOEMAKER 32473.
