Land grant as Governor of Virginia
Monroe, James

Land grant as Governor of Virginia. The 14.5 x 12.5 parchment grant was signed by Monroe on Sept 5, 1800 with a brown ink making for a slightly lighter than normal signature. Monroe signed more land grants as Secretary of State under Madison and then as president than he did as Governor. The large format as Governor are more impressive and displayable than his presidential grants.
