    Andrew Jackson Autograph Legal Document Signed. One page, 8.25" x 6.25", North Carolina, November 8, 1788. Andrew Jackson was admitted to the bar in 1787 at the age of twenty and shortly thereafter moved to Jonesborough, in what would later be the state of Tennessee. Here, acting as prosecuting attorney for the state, he records the decision by "The Jurors for the State upon their oath present that Samuel Martin late of the county of Davidson yeoman...the year of our lord one thousand seven Hundred and Eighty with force and arms at the County aforesaid one Gelding of a bay colour of one Elija Robertson then and there being found feloneously [sic] did steal take and lead away to the great damage of him the said Elijah Contrary to the statue in that case made and provided and against the...dignity of the state." Jackson's signature is very bold, but lacking the familiar paraph. Docketing on the verso is also in his hand. Folds and edges are toned.
