    William Henry Harrison Military Document Signed "Wm. H. Harrison / Aid de Camp." One page, 9.25" x 4.25", "Head Quarters Greenville [Ohio]," June 10, 1793. While serving during the Northwest Indian War in the First Infantry of the Regular Army as General "Mad Anthony" Wayne's aide-de-camp, Harrison authorizes this order for the distribution of forty pounds of beef to Indians living in the Northwest. "The commissary will please to issue to the Chipiwas [sic], Putewatimis [sic], &c forty pounds of beef."
