8000 - A REVOLUTIONARY WAR SOLDIER BUYS LAND IN NORTHWEST TERRITORY OF OHIO, SIGNED BY JAMES MADISON AND JAMES MONROE, Dated December 25th, 1812, City of Washington, vellum land grant 10" X 15", his title to lands sold at Steubenville by an act of Congress providing for sale of lands in the Territory in the northwest of Ohio and above the mouth of the Kentucky River granted to Absalorn Kent a quarter of land described as southeast quarter section number 9 township number 12 in range number 6. Kent was born October 16th, 1752 in Fairfax County, VA and died in Harrison County, Ohio August 10th, 1839. He was a Revolutionary War soldier who served in the Westmoreland County Militia in Pennsylvania. The vellum is clean; several voids in the vellum have been repaired on the verso affecting a few letters. The signature of Madison is light on the "J" but fine otherwise, the Monroe is bold. The seal has some deterioration but another is included separately if the buyer wants it replaced. Quite presentable overall and priced basically at what the signatures would sell as clips only.........................................................$795.00

8001 - SIGNED LAND GRANT BY JOHN TYLER AS GOVERNOR OF VIRGINIA FOR LANDS IN PRESENT DAY WEST VIRGINIA, February 27th, 1827, 12" X 17", vellum pre-printed and filled-in land grant allotting 73 acres to Samuel Flanagham in Hampshire County, Virginia which is now in present day West Virginia. The complete data in the exact position of the 73 acres is pinpointed by survey information including using trees as boundary points. Tyler boldly signs it in Richmond as Governor of the state of Virginia. The building of the Northwestern Turnpike (U. S. Route 50) was an integral part of the development of Hampshire County. General Daniel Morgan first suggested the road be built in 1748, but his recommendations were not acted upon until the 1830s. Colonel Claudius Crozet, a Frenchman who had previously worked for Napoleon Bonaparte, engineered the road which connected Parkersburg with Winchester, Virginia. The turnpike traversed Hampshire County stretching through the communities of Capon Bridge, Loom, Hanging Rock, Pleasant Dale, Augusta, Frenchburg, Shanks, and Romney.  Through the years, Romney became an important rest stop for travelers on the turnpike. This aided the local economy as hotels and taverns began to appear in the area. Samuel Flanagham was born in Pennsylvania in 1785 and is shown dying in Hampshire County in 1829, John Tyler (March 29, 1790 - January 18, 1862) was the tenth President of the United States (1841 - 45). He was elected vice president on the 1840 Whig ticket with William Henry Harrison, and became president after harrison's death in April 1841. Very fine, nice paper seal affixed, [only bottom portion of document shown above]. Tyler is scarce as Governor of Virginia.............................................$750.00


5000 - THE ELECTION OF 1884, The United States presidential election of 1884 was the 25th quadrennial presidential election, held on Tuesday, November 4, 1884. It saw the first election of a Democrat as President of the United States since the election of 1856. The campaign was marred by exceptional political acrimony and person invective. New York Governor Grover Cleveland narrowly defeated Republican former United States Senator James G. Blaine of Maine to break the longest losing streak for any major party in American political history: six consecutive presidential elections. New York decided the election, awarding Governor Cleveland the state's 36 electors by a margin of just 1,047 votes out of 1,171,312 cast. Famed Civil War general William Tecumseh Sherman was considered a possible Republican candidate, but ruled himself out with what has become known as the Sherman pledge: "If drafted, I will not run; if nominated, I will not accept; if elected, I will not serve." Robert Todd Lincoln, Secretary of War of the United States and son of past President Abraham Lincoln, was also strongly courted by politicians and the media of the day to seek the presidential or vice-presidential nomination. Lincoln however was as averse to the nomination as Sherman was. Two silk campaign ribbons from the election of 1884; CLEVELAND AND HENDRICKS and BLAINE AND LOGAN, both have small albumen photographs of the candidates. The Cleveland/Hendricks one has some slight fraying at the bottom, light age tone and the Blaine/Logan ribbon is choice, sold as a set of this interesting post-war election.........$295.00

5001 - JAMES A. GARFIELD, ELECTION OF 1881, pamphlet produced in 1880 by the National Republican Committee, 4.5" X 5.5", General Garfield as a statesman and orator, paragraphs from his speeches in Congress and on the stump, New York, 1st edition 32pp, printed wrappers. Light staining to wrappers, few minor chips, light uniform toning. Includes passages on the amendment abolishing slavery, on the death of Lincoln, taxation. A nice election of 1881 campaign item..........................................$65.00


21605 - PRESIDENT CHESTER A. ARTHUR, his bold signature on a Presidential White House card. Chester Alan Arthur (October 5, 1829 - November 18, 1886) was an American attorney and politician who served as the 21st President of the United States (1881 - 85); he succeeded James A. Garfield upon the latter's assassination. At the outset, Arthur struggled to overcome a slightly negative reputation, which stemmed from his early career in politics as part of New York's Republican political machine. He succeeded by embracing the cause of civil service reform. His advocacy for, and subsequent enforcement of, the Pendleton Civil Service Reform Act was the centerpiece of his administration. Very fine.....................................$395.00

21606 - EDITH BOLLING WILSON, WIFE OF PRESIDENT WOODROW WILSON, Second wife of President Woodrow Wilson. Typed letter sent to Jesse Randolph Smith of the United Daughters of the Confederacy November 19th, 1921 from her residence she and the ex President shared on S Street in Washington. She was First Lady of the United States from 1915 to 1921. She met the President in March 1915 and they married nine months later. President Wilson suffered a severe stroke in October 1919. Edith Wilson began to screen all matters of state and decided which were important enough to bring to the bedridden president. In doing so, she de facto ran the executive branch of the government for the remainder of the president's second term, until March 1921. One Republican senator labeled her "the Presidentress who had fulfilled the dream of the suffragettes by changing her title from First Lady to Acting First Man. Edith was extremely proud of her Southern Heritage and was involved in the United Daughters of the Confederacy. Bold signature.....................................$145.00


WILLIAM HENRY HARRISON

1839 - WILLIAM HENRY HARRISON AS GOVERNOR OF THE INDIANA TERRITORY 1801, A land grant for 100 acres in the County of Randolph awarded to GEORGE FISHER according to an act of Congress of 1793. The land was described as being on the River Mary with specific locations of the property using oak trees as markers. Dated November 3rd, 1801. A territorial seal is to the upper left with Harrison's signature as Governor below...William Henry Harrison. Overall the document measures 12" X 15", all in manuscript. Fisher settled in Kaskaskia, Indiana Territory in 1798 and practiced medicine. Fisher may have been from Virginia. He served in the Illinois Territorial Militia during the War of 1812. In 1805, Fisher served in the Indiana Territorial House of Representatives of the Indiana Territorial Legislature. In 1812 and 1816, he served in the Illinois Territorial House of Representatives of the Illinois Territorial Legislature from Randolph County, Illinois and was speaker. In 1818, Fisher served in the first Illinois Constitutional Convention. The Indiana Territory Governor William H. Harrison appointed Fisher sheriff of Randolph County in 1801. He died in 1820 in Randolph County, Illinois. Mary's River is a tributary of the Mississippi River in Illinois. It drains a small watershed between the Big Muddy River and the Kaskaskia River. It joins the Mississippi just southeast of Chester, near Kaskaskia. Because of its proximity to Kaskaskia - the capital of Illinois Territory and the first capital of the State of Illinois - Mary's River was the site of early settlements leading into the interior of Illinois. William Henry Harrison (February 9, 1773 - April 4, 1841) was the ninth President of the United States (1841), an American military officer and politician, and the last President born as a British subject. He was also the first president to die in office. He was 68 years, 23 days old when inaugurated, the oldest president to take office until Ronald Reagan in 1981. Harrison died on his 32nd day in office of complications from pneumonia, serving the shortest tenure in United States presidential history. His death sparked a brief constitutional crisis, but its resolution left unsettled many questions following the presidential line of succession in regard to constitution up until the passage of the 25th Amendment in 1967. He was the grandfather of Benjamin Harrison, who was the 23rd President from 1889 to 1893. Before election as president, Harrison served as the first territorial congressional delegate from the Northwest Territory, governor of the Indiana Territory, and later as a U.S. representative and senator from Ohio. He originally gained national fame for leading U.S. forces against American Indians at the Battle of Tippecanoe in 1811, where he earned the nickname "Tippecanoe" (or "Old Tippecanoe"). As a general in the subsequent War of 1812, his most notable action was in the Battle of the Thames in 1813, which brought an end to hostilities in his region. This battle resulted in the death of Tecumseh and the dissolution of the Indian coalition which he led. After the war, Harrison moved to Ohio, where he was elected to the United States House of Representatives. In 1824, the state legislature elected him to the U.S. Senate. He served a truncated term after being appointed as Minister Plenipotentiary to Colombia in May 1828. In Colombia, he spoke with Simón Bolívar, urging his nation to adopt American-style democracy. Returning to his farm in Ohio, Harrison lived in relative retirement until he was nominated for the presidency in 1836. Defeated, he retired again to his farm. He was elected president in 1840, and died of pneumonia in April 1841, a month after taking office. Good strong manuscript, light stains, some archival strengthening at fold, excellent signature.......................$2,750.00

THE ASSASSIN OF GARFIELD

A TRIO OF AUTOGRAPHS PRESIDENT JAMES A. GARFIELD JAMES G. BLAINE, AND CHARLES GUITEAU - THE ASSASSINATION 1881

1840 - Three important autographs: [1] Charles Guiteau a large bold signature affirmed by a note from his brother John W. Guiteau as being written by Charles during his trial, [2] a large autograph of James G. Blaine who was standing next to James Garfield when he was shot by Guiteau, [3] a clipped signature of James Garfield affirmed to be from one of the blank checks Garfield signed on July 1st, 1881 and left with his secretary J. Stanley Brown to be used to pay bills while the President was on vacation in New England and Ohio. It is not known how many checks Garfield left signed with Brown but according to Mrs. Garfield they are probably the last items he signed before being shot the next morning. Research has shown that Mrs. Garfield sent out some of the checks after being mutilated [cut up to prevent usage] salvaging the signatures. Only a total of 4 half checks and one close cut signature has been on the market in the last 35 years. This signature is the "close cut check" mentioned. The assassination of President James A. Garfield took place at 9:30 am on July 2, 1881, less than four months into Garfield's term as the 20th President of the United States. Garfield was shot by Charles J. Guiteau at the Baltimore and Potomac Railroad Station in Washington, D.C.; he died in Elberon, New Jersey eleven weeks later, on September 19, 1881. Garfield was the second of four Presidents to be assassinated, following Abraham Lincoln and preceding William McKinley and John F. Kennedy. His Vice President, Chester A. Arthur, succeeded Garfield as President. Garfield was scheduled to leave Washington on July 2, 1881, for his summer vacation, a fact which was reported in the Washington newspapers Reading of Garfield's plans, on that day Guiteau lay in wait for President Garfield at the Baltimore and Potomac Railroad Station, on the southwest corner of present - day Sixth Street and Constitution Avenue NW, Washington, D.C. President Garfield came to the Sixth Street Station on his way to his alma mater, Williams College, where he was scheduled to deliver a speech. Garfield was accompanied by two of his sons, James and Harry, and Secretary of State Blaine. Secretary of War Robert Todd Lincoln waited at the station to see the President off. Garfield had no bodyguard or security detail; with the exception of Abraham Lincoln during the Civil War, early U.S. presidents did not employ guards. As President Garfield entered the waiting room of the station Guiteau stepped forward and pulled the trigger from behind at point - blank range. "My God, what is that?" Garfield cried out, flinging up his arms. Guiteau fired again and Garfield collapsed. One bullet grazed Garfield's shoulder; the other hit him in the back, passing the first lumbar vertebra but missing the spinal cord before coming to rest behind his pancreas. Guiteau put his pistol back in his pocket and turned to leave the station for the cab he had waiting outside, but collided with policeman Patrick Kearney, who was entering the station after hearing the gunfire, and was apprehended. Kearney was so excited at having arrested the man who shot the president that he neglected to take Gateau's gun from him until after their arrival at the police station. Kearney demanded, "In God's name, what did you shoot the president for?" Guiteau did not respond to this. The rapidly gathering crowd screamed "Lynch him!" but Kearney and several other police officers took Guiteau to the police station a few blocks away. As he surrendered to authorities, Guiteau uttered the exulting words, repeated everywhere: "I am a Stalwart of the Stalwarts! I did it and I want to be arrested! Arthur is President now!" This statement briefly led to unfounded suspicions that Arthur or his supporters had put Guiteau up to the crime. The Stalwarts were a Republican faction loyal to ex-President Grant; they strongly opposed Garfield's Half-Breeds. Like many Vice Presidents, Chester A. Arthur had been selected as a running mate for political advantage - to placate his faction rather than for his skills or loyalty. Guiteau, in his delusion, had convinced himself that he was striking a blow to unite the two factions of the Republican Party. A rare combination of a signature of Guiteau at trial, a signature of James Blaine who was standing next to Garfield, and a clipped signature from one of the mutilated Riggs & Co. checks last signed by Garfield the day before his assassination. The trio...................................................$1,395.00

A member of the Democratic Party, he served in a number of senior roles, including eighth Vice President (1833 - 1837) and Secretary of State (1829 - 1831), both under Andrew Jackson.

1011 - PRESIDENT U. S. GRANT AND VICE PRESIDENT SCHYLER COLFAX, both signatures in ink, Grant was President and Colfax as Vice President, from an autograph album, 5" X 7" overall. Twice elected president, Grant led the Republicans in their effort to remove the vestiges of Confederate nationalism and slavery, protect African-American citizenship, and support economic prosperity nationwide. His presidency has often come under criticism for protecting corrupt associates and in his second term leading the nation into a severe economic depression. While remaining Commanding General, Grant entered the 1868 campaign season with increased popularity among the Radical Republicans following his abandonment of Johnson over the Secretary of War dispute. The Republicans chose Grant as their presidential candidate on the first ballot at the 1868 Republican National Convention in Chicago. In his letter of acceptance to the party, Grant concluded with "Let us have peace", which became his campaign slogan. For vice president, the delegates nominated House Speaker Schuyler Colfax.

11126 - PRESIDENT RUTHERFORD B. HAYES, wet plate albumen carte de visite. An excellent from life pose of Hayes as President. The winner of the disputed eletion of 1876 with the election decided on electoral votes awarded to Hayes which was called the "Compromise of 1877". In essence his election effectively ended Reconstruction in the South. The Compromise effectively ceded power in the Southern states to the Democratic Redeemers, who went on to pursue their agenda of returning the South to a political economy resembling that of its pre-war condition, including the disenfranchisement of black voters. Very fine, card is untrimmed and crisp..............................$185.00

11129 - PRESIDENT RUTHERFORD B. HAYES, dated October 26th, 1876 signed as Governor of Ohio only a few days before he was elected President of the United States, a commission for a judge of common pleas in the State of Ohio, 13.5" X 17" with gold seal. The United States presidential election of 1876 was the 23rd quadrennial presidential election, held on Tuesday, November 7, 1876. It was one of the most contentious and controversial presidential elections in American history. The results of the election remain among the most disputed ever, although there is no question that Samuel J. Tilden of New York outpolled Ohio's Rutherford B. Hayes in the popular vote. After a first count of votes, Tilden won 184 electoral votes to Hayes's 165, with 20 votes unresolved. These 20 electoral votes were in dispute in four states in the case of Florida, Louisiana, and South Carolina, each party reported its candidate had won the state, while in Oregon one elector was declared illegal (as an "elected or appointed official") and replaced. The question of who should have been awarded these electoral votes is the source of the continued controversy concerning the results of this election. An informal deal was struck to resolve the dispute: the Compromise of 1877, which awarded all 20 electoral votes to Hayes. In return for the Democrats' acquiescence in Hayes's election, the Republicans agreed to withdraw federal troops from the South, ending Reconstruction. The Compromise effectively ceded power in the Southern states to the Democratic Redeemers, who went on to pursue their agenda of returning the South to a political economy resembling that of its pre-war condition, including the disenfranchisement of black voters. Photo shows only the bottom of the large commission. Minor archive repair to edge, otherwise bright and fresh paper. Very fine..........................................................$425.00

11130 - PRESIDENT WOODROW WILSON, a signed velum commission signed by Wilson for a Lieutenant in the US Cavalry given to Lt. Stewart W. Cramer. 14" X 18 1/2", large blue seal with ornate decorative eagle, flags, dated August 17th, 1916. Cramer later became a Major. His father Stewart W. Cramer Sr. was a leading manufacturer of clothing in the early 20th Century in North Carolina. The company first manufactured Cramerton's famous 8.2-ounce "Army Khaki" in 1929. There is no doubt that his son Major Stuart W. Cramer, Jr. an officer in the US Army strongly influenced the decision to develop an improved fabric for military uniforms. Developed out of necessity after the failure of the "doughboy" uniforms used by the military in World War I, Cramerton Army Cloth became the standard basic uniform cloth throughout the armed forces. This fabric saw service through World War II, the Korean and Vietnam Wars. At the beginning of World War II, Cramer voluntarily released the technical know-how to allow other producers to duplicate his fabric as "Cramerton Army Cloth". Today the famous name has been registered and reintroduced by Dockers as "Cramerton Khaki". Major Stuart Cramer Jr., 1892 - 1957 attended the University of North Carolina and was a graduated of the U.S. Military Academy. He was married to Julia Baxter Scott Cramer III was married to Terry Moore, and later to Jean Peters. Both were Hollywood actresses both of who, at separate times, were married to Howard Hughes. An interesting note to this early commission to a member of a prominent North Carolina family. The vellum document is in very fine condition.

9202 - PRESIDENT ANDREW JACKSON, wet plate albumen carte de visite by Brady. Bust pose of Jackson from life taken by Brady in Jackson's later days. Military hero at New Orleans in 1815. Nominated for president in 1824, Jackson narrowly lost to John Quincy Adams. Jackson's supporters then founded what became the Democratic Party. Nominated again in 1828, Jackson crusaded against Adams and the "corrupt bargain" between Adams and Henry Clay he said cost him the 1824 election. Building on his base in the West and new support from Virginia and New York, he won by a landslide. His struggles with Congress were personified in his personal rivalry with Henry Clay, whom Jackson deeply disliked, and who led the opposition (the emerging Whig Party). As president, he faced a threat of secession from South Carolina over the "Tariff of Abominations" which Congress had enacted under Adams. In contrast to several of his immediate successors, he denied the right of a state to secede from the Union, or to nullify federal law. The Nullification Crisis was defused when the tariff was amended and Jackson threatened the use of military force if South Carolina (or any other state) attempted to secede.

JACK RUBY ASSASSIN OF LEE HARVEY OSWALD

9080 - JACK LEON RUBY (BORN JACOB LEON RUBENSTEIN, March 25, 1911 - January 3, 1967, was a nightclub operator in Dallas, Texas. On November 24, 1963, Ruby fatally shot Lee Harvey Oswald, who was in police custody after being charged with the assassination of John F. Kennedy two days earlier. A Dallas jury found Ruby guilty of murdering Oswald, and Ruby was sentenced to death. Later, Ruby appealed his conviction and death sentence and was granted a new trial. As the date for his new trial was being set, Ruby became ill and died of a pulmonary embolism due to lung cancer. Many contend Ruby was involved with major figures in organized crime, and conspiracy theorists widely assert that Ruby was not the sort to be entrusted with such an act within a high-level conspiracy. In this display is a check signed by Ruby form one of his nightclubs in Dallas, Texas. Copy photos of Kennedy in the motorcade and the actual shooting of Oswald are in this 11" X 14" display that is double matted. One of the most famous moments of US history captured on camera.

3115 - PRESIDENT JAMES MONROE, A large bold signature in ink, 1" X 5", from a document he signed as Secretary of State under Madison. "Jas. Monroe" "Secretary of State." (April 28, 1758 - July 4, 1831) was the fifth President of the United States (1817 - 1825). Monroe was the last president who was a Founding Father of the United States, the third of them to die on Independence Day, and the last president from the Virginia dynasty and the Republican Generation. He was of French and Scottish descent. Born in Westmoreland County, Virginia. Monroe was of the planter class and fought in the American Revolutionary War. He was wounded in the Battle of Trenton with a musket ball to his shoulder. After studying law under Thomas Jefferson from 1780 to 1783, he served as a delegate in the Continental Congress. As an anti-federalist delegate to the Virginia convention that considered ratification of the United States Constitution, Monroe opposed ratification, claiming it gave too much power to the central government. He took an active part in the new government, and in 1790 he was elected to the Senate of the first United States Congress, where he joined the Jeffersonian. He gained experience as an executive as the Governor of Virginia and rose to national prominence as a diplomat in France, when he helped negotiate the Louisiana Purchase in 1803. During the War of 1812, Monroe held the critical roles of Secretary of State and the Secretary of War under President James Madison. Facing little opposition from the fractured Federalist Party, Monroe was easily elected president in 1816, winning over 80 percent of the electoral vote and becoming the last president during the First Party System era of American politics. As president, he bought Florida from Spain and sought to east partisan tensions, embarking on a tour of the country that was generally well received. With the ratification of the Treaty of 1818, under the successful diplomacy of his Secretary of State John Quincy Adams, the United States extended from the Atlantic to the Pacific, giving America harbor and fishing rights in the Pacific Northwest. The United States and Britain jointly occupied the Oregon Country. In addition to the acquisition of Florida, the landmark Treaty of 1819 secured the border of the United States along the 42nd Parallel to the Pacific Ocean and represented America's first determined attempt at creating an "American global empire." As nationalism surged, partisan fury subsided and the "Era of Good Feelings" ensued until the Panic of 1819 struck and dispute over the admission of Missouri embroiled the country in 1820. Nonetheless, Monroe won near unanimous re-election. A nice bold signature....................................................$395.00

3116 - PRESIDENT JOHN QUINCY ADAMS, 8.75" X 13.5", vellum land grant, large heading, JOHN QUINCY ADAMS PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, November 13th, 1825, land at Cahaba, Alabama awarded and sold to Gabriel Benson, 79 plus acres. Signed in dark ink  J. Q. Adams. Embellishments are very strong in dark ink. Complete paper seal. Trifle pin holes as usual in vellum restored nicely. Nice and bright. Starting in 1804, U. S. Land Offices were established to sell land in the area which would become Alabama. By law federal land was sold to the highest bidders at public auctions. Alabama sales attracted me from all over the nation, many of them peculators. Groups of speculators bought large tracts, sometimes for as little as $10 an acre, then resold at $20 to $100 an acre. When an auction ended, poorer migrants could buy less desirable land for as little as $2 an acre. The smallest amount one person could buy was 160 acres. Under the Land Law of 1800 a purchaser could put one-fourth down and pay the rest off over three years. But when the price of cotton fell to eighteen cents a pound, few could meet payments on land bought at inflated prices. By 1820, Alabama owed the federal government $11 million - more than half of the national land debt. In 1820 and 1821, Congress passed new laws to deal with this problem. The Land Law of 1820 required future buyers to pay the entire amount in cash, but lowered the minimums to $1.25 an acre and 80 acres. Those already in debt were aided by the Relief Act of 1821 which permitted them to keep part of their land and return the rest to the government or buy it all on the installment plan at reduced rates.........................................................SOLD

LARGE CABINET PHOTOGRAPHS OF US PRESIDENTS

11072 - PRESIDENT RUTHERFORD B. HAYES, Cabinet photograph by Landy of Cincinnati dated 1877. Bust pose of Hayes. In 1876, Hayes was elected president in one of the most contentious and confused elections in national history. He lost the popular vote to Democrat Samuel J. Tilden but he won an intensely disputed Electoral College vote after a Congressional commission awarded him twenty contested electoral votes. The result was the Compromise of 1877, in which the Democrats acquiesced to Hayes' election and Hayes ended all federal army intervention in Southern politics. That caused the collapse of Republican state governments and led to a solidly Democratic South. Very fine...................................................$175.00
