Frederick Douglass Signed Deed for Washington D.C. Land 1886
- A District of Columbia area deed signed by Frederick Douglass in 1886. Douglass served as advisor to several presidents, including Abraham Lincoln, and in his later years was appointed to a series of federal offices. In 1881, President James Garfield appointed him the District of Columbia Recorder of Deeds, then a high-paying job. Douglass held the position for four years, resigning in 1884 to spend the next two years traveling with his wife. Matted with an image of Douglass. Overall dimensions: 15 1/8 " x 15 1/8 "; deed measures 8 1/2 " x 3 1/2 ". Condition: Very good condition with what appears to be a pencil signature by an unknown person near bottom edge.
