  • 1796 A new state legislature repealed the grant...
  • This is some pretty sweet land. I'll buy it and then sell it to Robert Fletcher.
  • C'mon bro. Chill out.
  • I'm suing for damages! To the Supreme Court!!!
  • I bought land off John Peck, and it violates state law!
  • Well that sucks.

  • We ruled that Georgia had violated the Contract Clause of the Constitution when it repealed the grants.
