|John C. Calhoun to S.L. Gouverneur, discussing President Andrew Jackson and his potential activities since the Seminole Affair and War
|10 June 1832
|Calhoun, John Caldwell (1782-1850)
|Vice President Calhoun wrote this letter after his falling out with President Andrew Jackson over Jackson's pursuit of the Seminole Indians into Florida during the first Seminole War. Discusses the Seminole Affair and questions a recently published article that claims Jackson had invaded Florida on secret orders from President Monroe. Calhoun had disapproved of Jackson's actions and considers this a "wicked attempt top transfer the odium from where it ought to rest & to place it on the memory of Mr. Monroe."
