The Coffin Handbill

"Some Account of Some of the Bloody Deeds of General Jackson" reads the headline on this anti-Jacksonian propaganda. During the 1828 presidential campaign, this broadside condemned Andrew Jackson for being a bloodthirsty disciplinarian because he ordered the execution of six mutinous militiamen in 1813. It is one of several "coffin" broadsides printed by John Binns, a Republican newspaper editor who aggressively campaigned against Jackson. A woodcut scene at lower right portrays Jackson assaulting and stabbing Samuel Jackson "in the streets of Nashville."
