    The first 2 pictures are a May 1811, Royal Spanish Decree from King Ferdinand and the Cadiz Cortes declaring 2 May a holiday in Spain and its territories to Celebrate the 2 May 1808, revolt against French rule in Madrid where many Spaniards died. I purchased this early in the year and later found the second decree and purchased it as well from the same collector. The 3rd and 4 pictures are a Oct 1817 Royal Spanish Decree from King Ferdinand and the Cadiz Cortes ordering every Cathedral in Spain and its territories to hold mass on 2 May every year. Both documents have some book worm damage unfortunately.

    I was truly elated to find to related documents spaced 6 years apart.

      Amazing history here. Do you have a Spanish background or has this just become a great interest to you?

      Nope im white american. But usa doesnt have that long of a history. So found this to be pretty cool Ndthefact that the spanish colonized alot of the current area of the usa.
