#1347

Congress, realizing the dream of John Adams in 1800, again authorized the creation of a National Bank. Standing in the way was their old foe, Chief Justice Crawford, who struck down the first attempt to create a bank as unconstitutional. @Panzeh, another test case has come to the court. Will Chief Justice Crawford cancel?

#1348

Crawford will not cancel.

#1349

Collusion!!!

#1350

No Collusion, no charges!

#1351

Traditionally one waits for a new Supreme Court before bringing another test case…

#1352

Pressure from the Whig-National party on the Supreme Court resulted in a surprising switch by Justice Crawford at the end of President Dallas’s term.

We’ve reached the end of the turn, so it is time for treasury phase and the election.

The Treasury Phase: The United States has a healthy public fisc, with 191 in the treasury.

The Election of 1828

The Election of 1828 would pit President Dallas against James Monroe.

@Brooski, Monroe selects a running mate first.

#1357

…that’s an ominous coda there

#1358

President Dallas nominates William Rufus King as his Vice-Presidential nominee. He accepts.

King invites James Buchanan (@Cuthbert) to accompany him on the arduous campaign across the nation (to help keep his spirits up).
#1359

The Conservatives will place first, @CF_Kane

#1360

The first three cubes are automatic:

Dallas - PA
King - AL
Monroe - VA

@Cuthbert has to decide now between OH, KY, or Carolinas.

#1361

Ohio (was not expecting to be nominated, shooting from the hip here)
