    William McKinley Document Signed Confirming Legislation written by the Chickasaw Nation. Signed "William H. McKinley", two pages, 8" x 13" Washington, D.C., November 29, 1900. First page is an act written by the national legislating body setting the salary of the coal and asphalt trustee. The second page confirms the United States government's acceptance of the Chickasaw legislation and is signed by William McKinley. Until 1832, The Chickasaw Nation lived in the area known as the lower Mississippi valley. Even in its earliest days the people had a strong governmental system. When the opportunity arose, the Chickasaw bought land and moved all their people to a reservation in Oklahoma where they have since maintained a strong tradition of government. Piece is in good condition, and document has some wear including folding on page one and very small holes along the top of both pages. McKinley's signature and the great seal of the Chickasaw nation are maintained excellently on page two.
