Opis: The Military Execution of American Citizens by Order of the President - Author Unknown

Excerpt from The Military Execution of American Citizens by Order of the President: An Appeal to the People of the United States by Citizens of the District of Columbia

That a bloody massacre, or a bloody execution has been enacted at the scat of the National Government, is now a well known fact. The only question to be settled by the people of the United States - is - was it done by virtue of law - or was it a lawless, and therefore a nefarious transaction. Upon this question, those citizens of the District of Columbia, who are opposed to the administration of both the national and city governments, desire to be heard.

The whole press of Washington city, viz: the Union, the National Intelligencer, the Star, the States, the National Era, all give the same version of the main features of the transactions of the 1st June. Every member of the City Council, in favor of the administration, have applauded and voted for resolutions of thanks to tho President, to the Mayor, to the Officers of the Marines, for the parts they severally enacted in that tragedy. Not one of the several performers has repudiated his share in the rewards thus offered by the Councils, and by the presses here and elsewhere, and they are presumed to defend their views of the whole transaction. We, therefore, bring them before the bar of public opinion for trial - and we trust to show by incontrovertible proof, that they are guilty of the crime of shedding innocent blood, without provocation, contrary to law.

We trust that all prejudice against the view we take of this subject, based on the action of the presses and corporate authorities of this city, will be removed by a simple statement of facts. Every democratic press is the recipient and expectant of Executive patronage, which every one knows, depends upon full and unshrinking defence of its measures. The Intelligencer's local editorials are prepared by editors and employees under similar influences. One of them is an English foreigner, bitterly hostile to the American party, another is the most violent member of the Board of Aldermen, and another is a member of the same board, and all are democrats and advocates of the administration.
