Jackson supporters Isaac Hill and Levi Woodbury ask that the manager of the 2nd National Bank of the United States in Portsmouth, NH, be removed because he is a Whig. Bank President Nicholas Biddle refuses.
The Specie Circular is issued by Treasury Secretary Levi Woodbury. Jackson and his administration felt it would check the speculation in land purchases that was rampant because of the "war" against the Second Bank of the United States
In 1835, a deranged Englishman, Richard Lawrence, attempted the first assassination of a President of the United States. At the funeral for South Carolina Representative Warren R. Davis, Jackson was walking down the steps in the Capitol to the rotunda when Lawrence approached armed with two pistols. After the first pistol misfired Jackson drew a cane and charged his assailant. Lawrence drew a second pistol and it, too, misfired. Lawrence claimed Jackson had killed his father and prevented Lawrence from returning to England to make a claim as rightful heir to the crown. Lawence was adjudacted insane and spent the rest of his life in an asylum.
