Wanting Some Legal History For Your Very Own?

On May 30, 2013, if you happen to be in New York and have wads of cash on you, you may want to stop by Douglas Elliman’s Madison Avenue Gallery. Some great historical documents are going up for auction. Prior to that, from April 8th to April 16th, some of them will be available for viewing.

Documents on display will include letters from George Washington, one in which he looks to hire Negro slaves as laborers, a letter by Thomas Jefferson, letters from Dwight D. Eisenhower letters to his wife discussing the war, a letter from Karl Marx, and many more enticing items.
