A 1795 peace offering “for the Delawares” at Greenville
Description  

Manuscript DS, signed “Wm. H. Harrison,” one page, 7.25 x 2.5, August 12, 1795. Requisition document issued to the commissary. In full: “For the Delawares one hundred & five pounds of beef & flour.” Matted with an engraved portrait of Harrison to an overall size of 10.25 x 12.5. A band of toning to the top edge, light scattered toning and soiling, and a small hole and stray ink mark to the center, otherwise fine condition.

At this time, Harrison was just 22 years old and serving as aide-de-camp to General ‘Mad’ Anthony Wayne in the Ohio Indian Wars. Just nine days prior to issuing this order, he was one of the signatories of the Treaty of Greenville, which ended the Northwest Indian War. In the treaty a coalition of Native American tribes, including the Delaware, Potawatomi, Chippewa, Miami, Ottawa, and Shawnee, ceded a large area of midwestern land to the United States in exchange for goods valued at $20,000. Harrison would come to national fame nearly two decades later when he again fought the Native Americans, most prominently in a victorious effort over Tecumseh at the Battle of Tippecanoe in 1811. Pre-certified PSA/DNA.
