Here is an original land grant given to a War of 1812 soldier from Virginia. This was granting 40 acres near Clinton. Missouri. It was granting Greenberry Watts, who had served as a Private in Captain Ragdale's Company Fifth Regiment Virginia Militia during the War of 1812. It is dated October 2, 1854. The document measures 15-1/2 inches by 10 inches in size. It is beautiful and has the pre-printed paper with the blanks filled in using fine brown ink. In the lower left hand corner, it has the applied great seal. In the lower right hand corner, it has the secretarial signed signature of President Franklin Pierce. Some of these land grants were signed by the President but most were signed for him by a secretary like this one. The document is accompanied by a modern xerox image of President Piece. This is a great document that was a way to honor one of the soldiers from the War of 1812.
