This pamphlet, produced by the Loyal Publication Society of New York, includes essays, letters, and other documents that speak to the history of rebellion in the United States, focusing the context on Habeas Corpus. The first essay, ""Military despotism!"" centers on Andrew Jackson's arrest of a judge for ""aiding and abetting and exciting mutiny"" in his camp after the judge supported the claims of an unfairly arrested citizen.
