William Henry Harrison Document Signed

This lot has closed

Estimate: $800+


Scarce manuscript DS, signed "Wm. H. Harrison, A D C," one page, 7.25 x 3.25, February 22, 1795. Harrison orders two days of rations for six men and states "the contractor will issue eighteen rations at Greenville." Signed at the bottom by Harrison. Affixed to a slightly larger mount. In fine condition, with scattered light staining. Harrison, who was then serving as Anthony Wayne's aide-de-camp, signed the Treaty of Greenville on August 3rd, ending the Northwest Indian War. The provisions of the treaty, which involved ten Native American tribes, included the turning over of certain lands—large parts of Ohio and the site of present-day Chicago among them—to the United States and delineated an 'official,' but often ignored, boundary between American and Indian holdings.
