Andrew Jackson document signed from the War of 1812, dated 5 March 1813. At this time, Jackson was commanding over 2,000 Tennessee volunteers in Natchez, Mississippi, told in early February to disband his troops in Natchez due to inadequate supplies. Rather than disbanding them, however, Jackson replied on 15 Mach that while he would turn over his supplies, he wouldn't leave his men stranded in Mississippi without adequate provisions, and would instead march them back to Nashville. Paying for their expenses out of his own pocket, Jackson did that - earning him the nickname of ''Old Hickory'' for his toughness in the process. He arrived financially destitute in Nashville a month later, although his allies convinced the War Department to ultimately reimburse him for the march.

Document is an accounting of food rations from the 2nd Regiment of Tennessee volunteers, boldly signed ''Andrew Jackson''. With a detailed inventory of rations on verso. Document measures approximately 6'' x 7.5'', double-matted and framed to a size of 21.25'' x 16.375''. Not examined out of frame. Separation along one fold line and slight smudge to signature, overall in very good condition.
