Antique 1842 Native American Indian Iowa Treaty Expense Document Gov Signed
1842. Single page manuscript, Joseph Boyles expensing three days salary ($8.00) assembling and preparing for holding a treaty with them (Sauk and Meskwaki tribes) in Agency, Iowa for what became known as the New Purchase of 1842 Treaty. Approved / signed by John Chambers (Second Governor of the Iowa Territory who notably served as William Henry Harrison's aide-de-camp during the War of 1812). ___ This last accession of Sac & Fox land ended a forty year campaign, culminating in Black Hawk's War, to clear the Iowa Territory of Native claims. Paying a small annual settlement and giving tribes three years to relocate to Kansas, the treaty directly enabled Iowa's path to statehood in 1846. ___ Measures 7.5 x 9.5", clean with original folds and very minimal foxing / ink spot. Please see photos and ask questions. Thanks much for looking.
