This though would have enabled him to Complete his education on a Liberal scale but peace being again restored and Jackson unused 10 the management of pecuniary affairs and surrounded by evil example soon went through his Small inheritance.

The danger from Bri Tish invasion on the Southwest passed Over and Jackson received orders from the Secre tary of War immediately to disband Bis troops and to hand Over to general Wilkin commanding the South Western division of the regular his munitions of War military stores wagons in the situation in which the troops of Gen Jack son were then placed this could have been done without much suffering to his Many were sick in his Camp and most of these rail Tia were of respectable families in.
