Description

Presented is tremendous letter, dated 1820, with military content from the hero of New Orleans, Andrew Jackson, to the sitting Secretary of War, John C. Calhoun (under James Monroe). The content of the letter is merely a request for a military assignment from Jackson for his close friend and neighbor’s son, Thomas Sanders. The fact of the matter is that this letter is an early political correspondence between the 7th President of the United States and his vice-president. Both Jackson and Calhoun were military men and displayed honor and virtue in their personal life. The letter itself is mildly toned and exhibits several light folds and one tape repair mark (the white boxes were made by period stamp hinges, but no residue was left). The Andrew Jackson (d.1845) signature rates a (“8-9”) in strength and clarity. The entire letter is in Jackson’s hand and was scripted in black ink. If collecting POTUS signatures is your cup of tea, this is a paramount Andrew Jackson letter. COA from James Spence Authentications.
