From the birth of the Revolution—the martyr of Bunker Hill in April 1775
Description  

Soldier killed during the Battle of Bunker Hill on June 17, 1775. Rare Revolutionary War–dated handwritten endorsement, “Rec’d the Contents by me, Nathan Blood Quarter M,” on the reverse of a manuscript order for supplies signed by John Pigeon, one page, 4 x 2, April 25, 1775. Pigeon’s order, submitted to Com. Davis, in full: “Deliver to Capt. Reuben Dow, six pots & twelve Dishes & Twenty wooden bottles.” A contemporary docketing notation is penned below Blood’s signature to indicate receipt, also bearing a later pencil collector’s notation. Affixed at the left edge to a 6.75 x 10.75 image of a memorial. In very good condition, with scattered toning and soiling, and a toned tape remnant to the lower left corner. An exceedingly rare piece from within days of the Battles of Lexington and Concord, signed by one of the earliest American casualties. Pre-certified John Reznikoff/PSA/DNA and RR Auction COA.
