The Christmas Session

Record #:
Controversy over the North Carolina senators' support for Andrew Jackson and states' rights led the legislature to hold session until 12:15 a.m. on Christmas Eve in 1834. The debate raged over a resolution that would expunge Whig Party Senator, Willie P. Mangum's vote to censure Andrew Jackson. Acceptance implied that state legislators had the power to tell the members of Congress how to vote.
