Scarce partly-printed DS, one page, 7.5 x 12, March 14, 1855. As Governor of the Territory of Utah, Brigham Young appoints George Wood as "Captain of Company A, of Battalion of Infantry, of Cedar Post of Iron Military District." Signed neatly at the conclusion by Young and countersigned by Secretary A. W. Bobbitt. Left side retains the original embossed Territory of Utah paper seal. Framed and in fine condition. An exceptionally desirable and rare military commission signed by Young as the first governor of Utah Territory—the first and only example that we have ever offered.
