[Washington, Pa: 1828]. Broadside. 45 x 29 cm. Text in four columns, signed in type by A. Lacock at Spring Dale, [Pa.], June 28, 1828, at end, along with a printed note: "Let us read this and then lend it to our neighbors." Docketted on verso: "Lacock v Jackson 1828." Paper uniformly browned, some faint old staining, ink note on verso bleeds through, slight printers error at a fold affecting a few letters. Not in AMERICAN IMPRINTS. OCLC lists a copy at Michigan, with the following catalogue note: "An attack upon Jackson's conduct in the Seminole War. Lacock had conducted an investigation of Jackson's conduct at the time." Lacock investigated Jackson as member of the U.S. Senate from Pennsylvania, issuing a report in 1818 (Sabin 38471) in which he concluded that Jackson had lied repeatedly in an attempt to justify his actions. He says in the present piece that Jackson "delighted to dwell with composure scenes of blood and carnage...." After leaving the Senate Lacock returned to western Pennsylvania. A surveyor, he devoted much of the rest of his career to the promotion and construction of the Pennsylvania & Ohio canal (see DAB). Item #64785
