|Scope & Content||
Scanned copy - not original - from American Antiquarian Society: "Constitution of the Portsmouth Clay Club."
The Clay Club was a Whig association and took its name from Henry Clay, who, with others, called themselves National Republicans - based on their vision of the United States as nation while others saw it as a confederation of states - taking strong national measures like building inter-state roads. They came to be called Whigs, implying that the Jacksonians were Tories, in favor of "King" Andrew.
