Photograph Description: Monumental inscriptions! Creator(s): Binns, J, Date Created Published: Philadelphia : John Binns, 1828. Summary: An account of six military executions ordered by Gen. Jackson in 1815. During the 1828 presidential election, John Quincy Adams' Federalist proponents created a series of 'coffin handbills' aimed at Tennessee war hero Andrew Jackson, a radical Democractic-Republican. Published by Philadelphia journalist John Binns, this broadside was the first in a series that attacked Jackson for the execution of Tennessee miliatiamen in Mobile during the War of 1812. John Binns initiated a negative campaign that proved ineffective; Jackson won by a landslide. Notes: Attributed to John Binns. Reference copy may be in Pres. File?
