Early Tennessee land transfer document between future U.S. president Andrew Jackson and his business partners John Hutchings and James Rawlings for "lot number 4 in the Southwest Square" of Lebanon, Wilson County, for $200. Dated May 11, 1809. 12 1/2" x 7 1/2". Note: this is a particularly early example of Jackson's signature. It dates from a period when Jackson was focusing on business, rebuilding his assets in the wake of a financial panic that had nearly bankrupted him. In just over three years, the War of 1812 would begin, catapulting Jackson into the national spotlight for his military victory at the Battle of New Orleans and paving his way to the presidency. However, this document also had a personal connection. John Hutchings (c.1776-1817), one of Jackson's closest business partners, was related to Jackson's wife Rachel. And Hutchings was the brother-in-law of James Smith Rawlings (1784-1820), who in 1806 had married Rachel Hutchings (1784-1846).


Toning, separations and a 1" loss to fold lines, fold crossing Jackson's signature, light fading to Jackson's signature.
