Andrew Jackson, "Veto of Maysville Road Bill" (1830)

http://www.pinzler.com/ushistory/vetoofmaysupp.html

Rating: 3, Medium.

Description: Although Jackson vetoed a bill in 1830 providing for a federal government subscription of stock in a company that proposed to build a sixty-mile road near Maysville, Kentucky. Jackson's veto message offered some thoughtful commentary on the question of the relationship between the federal government and the states and on the role of government in society more generally. As you read, consider how Jackson defends his veto of the Maysville Road Bill. And, think about how Jackson's veto reflected the ideology of the Democratic Party at the time.
