Description

ADS, signed “Wm. H. Harrison, A d C,” one page, 8.25 x 4.25, March 26, 1794. A food supply order issued from "Headquarters" in Greenville, Ohio, in full: "The Contractors will please to issue to the Chikasaws twenty Rations of flour & meat." In very good to fine condition, with somewhat irregular overall staining.

In 1793, a 20-year-old Harrison became the aide-de-camp to Major General 'Mad Anthony' Wayne, under whose tutelage he was instructed on how to command an army on the American frontier. He later participated in Wayne's decisive victory at the Battle of Fallen Timbers on August 20, 1794, which ended the Northwest Indian War, and a year later on August 3, 1795, Harrison was a signatory of the Treaty of Greenville, which redefined the boundary between Indian lands and settler lands in the Northwest Territory.
