    William Henry Harrison Autograph Document Signed "Wm. H. Harrison / Aid de Camp." One page, 6.5" x 4.25", "H.Q. Greeneville [Ohio]," August 21, 1795. While serving as General "Mad Anthony" Wayne's aide-de-camp, the future president writes, "The commissary will issue for the Cherokees twelve pounds of beef & flour and one quart of whiskey." Earlier in 1794, General Wayne's troops, which included Harrison (a lieutenant at the time), defeated the Western Confederacy of American Indian tribes at the Battle of Fallen Timbers, bringing an end to the Northwest Indian War (1785-1795). (Cherokees, the recipients of this supply order, fought with the Western Confederacy.) Eighteen days before writing this order, Harrison had served with General Wayne as a signatory at the Treaty of Greenville, which included annual grants of federal supplies and money to the Indian tribes. In return, the U.S. received most of modern-day Ohio. This document bears minor soiling. The text and signature are very clear and bold.
