(Presidential) JACKSON, Andrew
Early 1789 Andrew Jackson Signed Document (Pre-TN Statehood)
Nashville, TN: Original Document, 1789. Very Good. Very early ADS (Autograph Document Signed) "Andrew Jackson" penned as a young attorney, 1 PP, Legal Sized Folio [8 1/4 X 12 3/4 Inches]. Legal document in which George Suggs pledges himself bound to Samuel Hayes in the amount of five hundred pounds in exchange for a 640 acre tract of land along "the waters of Stones River." Letter dated January 5, 1789. At the time, Jackson was practicing law in a wilderness outpost that someday would become Nashville, TN. Seventh President of the United States, "Old Hickory" became a national hero in his defense of New Orleans and as President encouraged Western Expansion. Jackson was admitted to the Bar in North Carolina in 1787 at the age of 20. This document signed when Jackson was 22 years old. Document a bit weak at the folds with a bit of wear to edges. A very attractive and very early Jackson signed document.
