Death of General Jackson

After noting that Jackson, has “expired with the utmost calmness”,  Garrison expresses his contempt.  “He has been an awful curse and scourge to the country, and his death, therefore, will be any thing but a public calamity.  But, as bad as he was, there will be no lack of panegyrists to try to make his career appear illustrious.  But in vain … in vain!”  (Liberator, June 20, 1845)
