The politics of land speculation in the House of Burgess in Virginia is well documented and every bit as vicious as one could want.  Vote rigging for approving land sales west of the Appalachians would make a cutthroat game.

The indepence movement in Virginia was as much or more about the Crown cramping the machinations of the speculators in favor of peace with the natives as any loftier ideals.
