    Description

    [Daniel Boone] Three Congressional Reports 1810-1813 all printed by Roger C. Weightman, Washington City, regarding Daniel Boone's Petition, first to the House and ultimately the Senate, requesting a grant of 1,000 arpens of land which he claims were promised to him for services rendered to the government of the United States. Despite his daring acts of courage and his status as America's first folk hero, his petition was at first denied. Boone served as syndic and commandant until 1804, when Missouri became part of the United States following the Louisiana Purchase. Because Boone's land grants from the Spanish government had been largely based on verbal agreements, he once again lost his land claims. In 1809, he petitioned Congress to restore his Spanish land claims, which was finally done in 1814. Boone sold most of this land to repay old Kentucky debts. A fascinating record. All fine or better.
