THOMAS JEFFERSON and JAMES MADISON
As President and Secretary of State, they signed this 1806 grant for land in Ohio, matted and framed to 40x21½
Land Grant signed: "Th. Jefferson" as President, "James Madison" as Secretary of State, 1 page, 15x9. Matted and framed with portraits of Jefferson and Madison and two explanatory metallic plaques to an overall size of 40x21½.  Washington, D.C., 1806 May 8. Land grant issued to Nicholas Gutshall of Washington County, Pennsylvania, for a defined territory in the territory northwest of the Ohio and above the mouth of the Kentucky River, as authorized by an Act of Congress. Overcoming his scruples about the powers of the federal government, President Jefferson authorized the Louisiana Purchase from France in 1803. This bargain doubled the size of the United States. Between 1798 and 1821, Congress enacted legislation allowing citizens like Mr. Gutshall to purchase parcels of public land there on generous terms, insuring that America's population, not just its territory, expanded rapidly westward. By the date of this grant, Ohio had already become the 17th State (1803), and its population grew so rapidly that its Electoral Votes soon became crucial in Presidential elections. The Presidency of Thomas Jefferson (1801-1809) was immediately followed by that of James Madison (1809-1817), so this document offers two chief executives, and of course - two of America's greatest founding fathers. Soiled and creased. 3 vertical 2 horizontal fold creases. Pencil note (unknown hand) at lower right corner. Corners creased. Round paper seal at lower left has been removed, multiple razor thin slits through area. Left edge trimmed irregular. Otherwise fine condition. Not framed by the Gallery of History.
