The legendary leader of the Green Mountain Boys

Farmer, businessman, land speculator, philosopher, writer, American Revolutionary War patriot, hero, and politician (1737-1789). Rare ink signature, "Ethan Allen, B. University,” on an off-white 3.5 x 1 slip clipped from a ledger and affixed to a same-size mount. In very good to fine condition, with overall soiling, and an ancient piece of clear tape over the first letter of the signature. Accompanied by a full letter of authenticity from JSA. A rare opportunity to collect one of the most recognizable names in American history — Allen is best known as a founder of the state of Vermont and for the capture of Fort Ticonderoga early on in the Revolutionary War.
