Treaty Between The United States of America and the Creek and Seminole Tribes of Indians.

Washington, DC: Wm. Q. Force, print., 1845. 4to, self-wrappers. 6 pp.

An official printing of an 1845 treaty, concluded and ratified under President James K. Polk, relating to the Creek lands in Florida, rectifying a treaty of 1833 which grouped the Creeks and Seminoles together and misled the Creeks with regard to the lands they would be given. The result was that “the Seminoles since the Creeks first agreed to receive them” had been “engaged in a protracted and bloody contest.” As compensation the Creeks were afforded additional educational stipends and allowed to settle on land west of their present location. Signed in type by numerous Seminoles and Creeks, President Polk, and other officials.

CONDITION: Good, losses to the upper right and lower left corners, not affecting text.
