As the last US President considered among the Founding Fathers, James Monroe is best known for his foreign policy position opposing European colonialism in the Americas. His influence on shaping the early years of the presidency wasn’t limited to the Monroe Doctrine. This James Monroe handwritten letter debating the constitutionality of federal funds appropriation with his predecessors is a stunning piece of American history that RR Auction successfully sold at a very high price. Another incredible James Monroe letter that excoriates General Andrew Jackson for his unauthorized invasion of Spanish Florida was tremendously well-received at auction, selling for more than initial estimates.
