About this Item

2 pages (front and back), 9.75 x 8 inches, Delaware County, Pennsylvania, May 13, 1823 -- a militia directive sent to Major Samuel Anderson, responding to his letter of resignation, withdrawing himself from command to which he was elected by the unanimous votes of the officers and men, comprising the Delaware County Militia. In small part: ".It would have given us much pleasure could your private arrangements have admitted you to remain with us.we trust that.the prospects you have formed for yourself, may be realized in the fullest intent." Minor folds and several tiny creases; otherwise very good condition. The document is signed by the following four veterans who fought gallantly in the War of 1812: Dr. Joseph Wilson, Founder (in 1812) of the Delaware County Troops; George Hawkins, Commander of the Delaware County Blues; Henry Myers, Captain, Delaware County Volunteers; John Crosby, Commanding, Regiment Artillery. Samuel Anderson (1774-1850) was a Naval surgeon recommended by Benjamin Rush, and subsequently appointed by President John Adams, a surgeon's mate in the U.S. Navy in 1799.
