    Five Connecticut Militia Appointments, Including Two Signed by Jonathan Trumbull Jr. Each document is printed on a folded horizontal sheet, ranging in size from 14" x 8.5" to 12.25" x 7.25". All pieces are moderately age toned with minor to moderate chips, tears, and occasional light stains. Four bear official state seals or affixed stamps. Very good to fine condition.

Partly printed and accomplished in a variety of hands, they are signed by Lt. Col. Jonathan Humphry (1792), Connecticut Governor Jonathan Trumbull Jr. (1799 and 1800), Connecticut Governor Henry W. Edwards (1837), and Col. George C. Owen (1840).
