    Description

    President Ulysses S. Grant Appoints an Indian Agent. Three partially or full hand-written documents, secretarially signed, ranging from 1872-1875. Each one is the appointment of George W. Ingalls of Illinois as U.S. Agent for the "Pi Ute Indians of S.E. Nevada" and for the "Cherokee, Creeks, Choctaws, Chickasaws and Seminoles in the Indian Territory."

    The fine civilized tribes, originally from the Southeast, had by this time been relocated to "Indian Territory" (Oklahoma). Indian Territory was a veritable no-man's land, occupied not only by resettled Native Americans, but also former slaves, renegades and desperados looking for a place to lose themselves.

    The documents, each measuring 8" x 12.75", are in outstanding condition with great "period flavor."
