  • After 1796, when a new state legislature repealed the grant...
  • This is some pretty sweet land. I'll buy it and then sell it! I, John Peck, is a genius.
  • I'm suing for damages! To the Supreme Court!!!
  • C'mon Robert Fletcher, be cool about this.
  • I bought land off of this guy, and it violates state law!
