George Washington Colonel Charles Scott 1809 Signed Document (PSA)

George Washington Colonel Charles Scott 1809 Signed Document (PSA)

This vintage 1809 document is a Military Commission signed by Charles Scott as the 4th Governor of Kentucky. Made out to John McMillan as a "Cornet of a Calvary Company," (with the pre-printed "Ensign" actually crossed out and the revised rank written in), Scott's flowing fountain pen signature graces the bottom right of the document. Scott served as a colonel with George Washington during the American Revolution in 1776 and later as a commander of Washington's light infantry. Another fun curiosity attesting to the youth of the new republic - the rank of "Cornet" was actually British in origin, and was abolished in 1871.
