We all studied the basics in school about bank failures, who was President and what their main accomplishments were, the wars, states rights and so much more we have forgotten. For me, seeing the early history of our land in context with my family has me digging for more knowledge.
So, on this very cold Wednesday which is also the birth date of President Andrew JACKSON, allow me to sit and read how cousin Condy RAGUET connected with him in the politics of the past.
It gets quite wordy in The Examiner, and Journal of Political Economy; Devoted to the Advancement of the Cause of State Rights and Free Trade edited by RAGUET. Some of the issues can be read online. So enjoy!

Ah, genealogy. States rights, bank failures and free trade disagreements. Still in heated discussions after over two hundred years of American history.
