Day 44, March 11

A supporter of Adams named Charles Hammond, in an editorial in the Cincinnati Gazette, wrote “General Jackson’s mother was a COMMON PROSTITUTE brought to this country by British soldiers. She afterwards married a MULATTO MAN, with whom she had several children, of which General JACKSON IS ONE!!!”  (Emphasis by Hammond.)

Jackson’s followers, meanwhile, accused Adams of providing an American girl for the “services” of the Russian czar when Adams served as American ambassador to Russia. They branded Adams  “Pimp to the Coalition."
