Appealing 1835 Fort Crawford muster roll

Manuscript DS, signed “Z. Taylor, Col Comdg,” one page, 20 x 15.75, March 1834. A muster roll headed “Muster Roll of non-commissioned Officers and Privates employed on Extra duty at Fort Crawford, as mechanics and laborers during the month of March 1834,” listing the names of 18 soldiers employed as laborers by Colonel Taylor, identifying their ranks, companies, and nature of service, including, “In charge of tools,” “Attending Sawmill,” “Carpenter,” “Quarrying Stone,” and “Teamster.” Signed at the conclusion by Taylor to certify the muster roll’s accuracy and countersigned by the assistant quartermaster. Intersecting folds with small holes at intersections (one vertical fold passing through a single letter of the signature), and light toning, otherwise fine condition. Fort Crawford was an outpost of the United States Army located in Prairie du Chien, Wisconsin, seated at the intersection of two of North America’s greatest water routes—the Mississippi and Wisconsin Rivers. Taylor commanded the fort from 1829 through 1837, only leaving when he was directed to Florida to participate in the Second Seminole War, where he served with distinction and earned the moniker ‘Old Rough and Ready.’ Pre-certified John Reznikoff/PSA/DNA and RR Auction COA.
