Massachusetts received a letter that Alexander Hamilton, founding father, wrote during the Revolutionary War.
Authorities claim that the letter was stolen in the 1930s and 1940s by a “kleptomaniacal” cataloguer at the state archives.
A Federal Appeal Court decision upheld an earlier ruling that the Massachusetts letter is its property.
Secretary of State William Galvin stated Tuesday that the letter will be displayed at the museum for special events.
This letter was sent to Lafayette in 1780. It spurred Massachusetts to send troops into Rhode Island to support the allied French forces.
According to the Associated PressThe alleged cataloguer was finally arrested.
According to the Associated Press, multiple rare documents may have been stolen by the suspect cataloguer.
