Early handwritten pay order from the 22-year-old aide-de-camp in the Ohio Indian Wars
Description  

Very early ADS signed "Wm. H. Harrison," one page, 7 x 2, August 12, 1795. A requisition order issued from Greeneville, in full: "For the Ottawas thirty seven pounds of beef & flour." Double-matted and framed with an engraved portrait and nameplate affixed to the glass to an overall size of 14 x 14. In fine condition, with toning to edges and a small hole to the lower left.

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. Less than a month before writing this document, 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 Ottawa, Potawatomi, Chippewa, Miami, 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.
