More About this Item


Description: JACKSON, ANDREW. (1767-1845). Army officer and seventh president of the United States. Free Frank. (“Free A. Jackson”). 1p. 12mo. (Nashville, December 15, circa 1841-1845). The address panel of an envelope addressed in an unknown hand to Samuel Lippincott in Philadelphia. Jackson has added “Free” above his broad signature. ********** Prior to his presidency, Jackson held several public offices, serving as Tennessee’s first senator from 1796-1797, before being appointed a judge in state superior court. With the War of 1812, he became a major general of the Tennessee militia. Later, as commander of the southern district, Jackson invaded Florida, leading to the U.S. seizure of the Spanish-owned territory. This conquest bolstered his popular support and played no small role in his election to the presidency in 1828, which ushered in the so-called era of Jacksonian Democracy. Serving two terms, he left office far more popular than when he entered. ********** With a blue ink postmark and “Free” stamp, neither of which affect Jackson’s signature. Folds and slightly irregularly trimming, with some nominal wear and in very good condition. Accompanied by four one-cent postage stamps featuring William K. Schrange’s likeness of Jackson, issued in 1963.
