We are delighted to present 8 original and signed official paperwork from the late 1700's and early 1800's. These came from a serious collector's estate. These are a wonderful investment, and are perfect for the home, office, gallery, museum, or as a gift.
Peter Early served as governor of Georgia at the height of the Creek War of 1813-14. His administration's enthusiastic backing of federal military expeditions on this "other front" of the War of 1812 enlarged and secured Georgia's frontier by hastening the Indians' removal, thus fostering the state's nineteenth-century transition from an undeveloped frontier to a "cotton kingdom." One of a generation of late-eighteenth-century Virginia emigrants who rose to prominence in Georgia public office, Early also served as a U.S. congressman, state superior court judge, and state senator. He was a longtime trustee of the state university in Athens and briefly served as its interim president.
