PRESIDENT ANDREW JACKSON - MANUSCRIPT LETTER SIGNED 11/17/1800 CO-SIGNED BY: GOVERNOR ARCHIBALD ROANE, JUDGE DAVID CAMPBELL - HFSID 5022

 

ANDREW JACKSON, ARCHIBALD ROANE and DAVID CAMPBELL
The future President and his fellow Superior Court judges find for the plaintiff in a dispute about a dead man's debt.
Manuscript Letter signed: "Andrew Jackson" as Superior Court Judge, 2p, 7½x12½. (Tennessee), 1800 November 17. Also signed by Superior Court Judges "Archibald Roane" and "David Campbell". In the case of William Rickard against Thomas Jones Armstrong, Heir at Law of Thomas Armstrong deceased, the three judges issue a Decree of Equity. In part: "The Defendant herein having failed to file his answer after due publication thereof, the Bill of the Plaintiff is taken his confess. Whereupon the Court upon consideration of the Bill, and Exhibits therewith filed Declares orders and Decrees that the said Thomas Jones Armstrong Heir at law as aforesaid do pay to the said Plaintiff, out of the real assets of the deceased...the sum of Two hundred and thirty two Dollars ninety Cents...." On June 1, 1796. ANDREW JACKSON was elected Tennessee's first Congressman, serving until his election as U.S. Senator on March 4, 1797. In April 1798 he was elected Judge of the State Supreme Court of Tennessee. He retired to private life in 1804. Jackson became a national hero by defeating the British Army at the Battle of New Orleans (1815). Returned to the US Senate in 1823, he lost the 1824 Presidential election in the House of Representatives. Winning two full terms as the 7th US President (1829-1837), is remembered as a strong President who championed national unity. While some of his policies were controversial, such as the forcible removal of Indian populations on the "Trail of Tears," his advocacy of popular participation in government shaped the modern Democratic Party. Judge ARCHIBALD ROANE (1759-1818), who had crossed the Delaware River with General Washington in 1776 and was present at the British surrender at Yorktown, served as Governor of Tennessee from 1801-1803. As Governor, Roane cast the tie-breaking vote to bestow command of the Tennessee militia on Jackson, instead of former Governor and Jackson rival John Sevier. This vote boosted Jackson's rise to national fame but ruined Roane's political career, when Sevier defeated his bid for re-election the following year. Judge DAVID CAMPBELL (1750-1812), a Continental Army major in the Revolutionary War, was the first public official to be impeached in the history of the State of Tennessee. He was impeached in 1798 on a complaint from William Blount to Governor John Sevier concerning a judicial ruling of Campbell in a lawsuit. Campbell, tried before the Tennessee Senate, was acquitted by a single vote. Ironically, the presiding officer of the Senate was Blount, his accuser, who had to announce the verdict. Fragile. Nicked edges. Some partial separations at horizontal folds touch some text (all intact). Darkly penned and signed with show through. Holes at some letters due to chemistry of ink to paper. Overall, fine condition.
