Brigadier General WILLIAM HENRY HARRISON was Governor of Indiana Territory (1800-1813). On February 17, 1809, 1st Lieutenant William Piatt, Second Regiment of Infantry, was promoted to the rank of Captain. Captain Piatt arrived at Pittsburgh July 23, 1811 from the War office, with orders to proceed with his detachment of the 4th Infantry to the falls of the Ohio, and there to await the orders of Harrison. Captain Piatt was given the duties of Quartermaster and Commissary functions. No information is available concerning R. D. Richardson. Documents signed by Harrison with his full middle name "Henry" are especially desirable since he is one of the few U.S. Presidents usually referred to using his middle name. Repaired at left margin which showed nicks at horizontal folds. The repair has stained the margin on front and lightly touches the "n" of Harrison in signature on verso. Repairs also at horizontal folds show light stains touching some text. ¾-inch triangular cut at top edge touches 1 word but paper is still present. ½-inch tear at top blank edge, all paper intact.
