Description

Seventh President of the United States Andrew Jackson (d.1845) was a proponent of low cost “Land Grant” sales as a means of speeding up the expansion of commercial agriculture. The U.S. Government owned vast areas of good land and these sales served the two-fold purpose of putting this land to useful purpose while forming a solid basis of economic wealth for the Government. Jackson used this wealth to settle the national debt in 1835, the only time in history this was accomplished. Presented is an 1831 Land Grant document endorsed by sitting President Jackson. Mr. Jackson’s signature was applied in black ink by dip pen and presents with handsome (“8-9”) quality. This Land Grant was issued to Ralph Lowder for a parcel of land in Indiana on June 1, 1831. This document is in excellent overall condition with clearly legible lettering throughout. The heavy stock is light cream colored and has a sturdy and crisp feel with one horizontal and two vertical folds, and shows only moderate wear. It measures 15-1/2 x 10” and bears the Seal of the General Land Office along with the signature of Commissioner Elijah Haywood. Full photo LOA from JSA.
