  • JOHN QUINCY ADAMS Land Grant signed by Adams as President in August 1827, also signed by land commissioner George Graham Land Grant signed: "J. Q. Adams" as President, "George Graham" as Commissioner of the General Land Office, 1 page, 15.5” x 9.75”. Washington, D.C., 1827 August 20. The document attests that Henry Van Wagoner of Oakland County, Michigan, having deposited a registration certificate at the land office, and made full payment, in compliance with the Land Act of 1820, is granted ownership of 80 acres of land at a location defined in the text. (The Land Act of 1820 lowered the price of an acre of land purchased from the US from $2.00 to $1.25, but required full payment in cash, not on credit.) JOHN QUINCY ADAMS (1767-1848), the 6th President of the US and the son of the third, was elected in the House of Representatives in 1824 after none of the 3 candidates (Andrew Jackson and Henry Clay were the others) secured a majority of Electoral Votes. Although his election was fully legal, it was tainted in the public mind because Jackson had secured more Electors and Adams was elected with the help of supporters of Clay, who became Secretary of State, an arrangement denounced as "the corrupt bargain." Adams' vision of a strong federal government carrying out a vigorous program for economic development was repudiated in 1828, when Jackson defeated Adams' bid for re-election. As Secretary of State in the Monroe administration (1817-1825), Adams was the principal author of the Monroe Doctrine, which declared the Americas not open to new European colonization. Adams became the only President to return to Congress, representing his Massachusetts district in the House of Representatives (1831-1848) and emerging as an eloquent critic of slavery. GEORGE GRAHAM (1772-1830), a lawyer in Fairfax County, Virginia, was commander of the Fairfax Light Horse during the War of 1812. (Framed)
