    Description

    William Clark Autograph Document Signed "Wm Clark L.T.S.L." One page, 7.25" x 5.25", Greeneville, Northwest Territory; May 26, 1794. A short document, directing John Mills, Adjutant, to "deliver one quart of Whiskey for the use of the Chickasaw Indians." With docketing on verso, signed by James Donelson.

Assigned to the 4th Sub-Legion, he was involved in several skirmishes and led a command of riflemen at the Battle of Fallen Timbers on August 20, 1794. This decisive win helped bring an end to the war.
