This Week in History: President Andrew Jackson’s Censure


Andrew Jackson, the 7th U.S. President, in Lafayette Square





On March 24, 1763, William Pitt the Elder, before the House of commons in opposition to the Excise Bill, stated:  “The poorest man may in his cottage bid defiance to all the forces of the Crown.  It may be frail, its roof may shake, the wind may blow through it, the storm may enter, the rain may enter, but the King of England cannot enter.  All his force dares not cross the threshold of the ruined tenement!”

On March 24, 1765, Britain passed the Quartering Act, requiring the American Colonies to house British troops.

On March 28, 1834, the Senate censured President Andrew Jackson.
