Description and Holding Information
1815, U.S. v. Maj. Gen. Andrew Jackson (16 documents) (MS)
1815 case of the United States v. Major General Andrew Jackson, containing sixteen documents. Of note, this case was the result of the declaration
of martial law on December 16, 1814, following his capture of New Orleans in the War of 1812. A judge who attempted to intervene was arrested and
banished. Following the lifting of martial law after Jackson heard of the official end of the war, a summons by the judge was served. Ultimately,
Jackson was fined $1,000 for contempt, although he also had statements from fellow military that supported his position. (Digitized from a microfilm copy
of titles originally held the Federal District Court Archives in New Orleans, Louisiana).
