The top of the document has a scalloped cut along the top of the paper. The property was sold to Henry Brackin for the sum of $600. This is a very formal written agreement with detailed information about the property and the transaction. The document is completely separated along the middle horizontal fold line and has various other small tears throughout the document. The reverse includes docketing information as well as various sum notations, but the signatures are not affected in the slightest.

2.

On the reverse is docketing information and instructions. Signed at the bottom by the surveyor, Alexander J. Bouldin. There are a few tears along the middle fold line but still in Extremely Fine Condition.

Abner Doubleday fired the first shot from Fort Sumter after the Confederate ironclad battery bombardment of the fort. He also led troops in the battle of Gettysburg and is credited with creating baseball. A great collection of documents from a man who did it all.
