Product Description

THOMAS JEFFERSON and JAMES MADISON

In the year of the Louisiana Purchase, the President and Secretary of State signed this grant of land in the new State of Ohio. Land Grant signed: "Th. Jefferson" as President, "James Madison" as Secretary of State, 1 page, 13¼x10½. Washington, D.C., 1803 November 3.

Document bears a large blind-embossed seal in the lower left corner. In accordance with the Act of Congress providing for the sale of lands in the territory northwest of the Ohio River and above the mouth of the Kentucky, and determining that Benjamin Stanton has made full payment for a specified section of land there, the land is granted to Stanton, his heirs and assigns forever.

Stanton's payment was deposited at the land office in Steubenville, in the new State of Ohio. Ohio became the 17th State in 1803, dating from either February 19, when Congress approved Ohio's constitution, or March 1, the date Ohio celebrates because its legislature first met on that date. THOMAS JEFFERSON (1743-1826) served as third U.S. President from 1801-1809. A former delegate to the Continental Congress from Virginia (1775-1776, 1783-1784), Jefferson drafted and signed the Declaration of Independence (1776). He then served as Governor of Virginia (1779-1781) and as a member of Virginia's state legislature (1782). Named U.S. Minister to France in 1785, Jefferson remained abroad until 1789, when he was asked by George Washington to be his Secretary of State (1790-1793). Jefferson then served as Vice President under John Adams (1797-1801) until being elected President. A man of many talents, Jefferson has been called "the Sage of Monticello" and "the Father of the University of Virginia". Jefferson's greatest Presidential achievement was the Louisiana Purchase, signed April 30, 1803. The US paid Napoleonic France $15 million to double the size of the United States, the greatest...
