Abstract:
On March 17, 1775, a group of nine North Carolina proprietors called the Transylvania Company participated in the largest private purchase of Indian land ever in North America. The Cherokee Indians sold some 22,000,000 acres of land to the men who immediately began colonizing it. After independence, Virginia governor Patrick Henry declared the deal null and void, and both Virginia and North Carolina each granted the men 200,000 acres.
