Scarce Madison-Monroe military appointment
Description  

Partly-printed vellum DS, signed “James Madison” as president and “Jas. Monroe” as secretary of war, one page, 15.5 x 10.5, February 20, 1815. President Madison appoints David McIlvain as “a first lieutenant in the forty sixth regiment of Infantry in the service of the United States.” Signed at the conclusion by President Madison and countersigned by Secretary of War Monroe. In very good condition, with intersecting folds, scattered soiling, and signatures faded a few shades light. Although Monroe served in Madison’s cabinet for the majority of his term, his primary position was secretary of state; he served as secretary of war for less than six months, making documents signed in this capacity much scarcer. Pre-certified PSA/DNA.
