Hill/Lt. & Recorder", noting the receipt of the items listed. On April 4, 1832, Taylor had become Colonel of the 1st Infantry with headquarters at Fort Crawford, Prairie du Chien, Michigan Territory (now Wisconsin). On August 2, 1832, Colonel Taylor took part in the final battle of the Black Hawk War and was given custody of Sauk Chief Black Hawk. In 1833, Black Hawk met with President Jackson. Taylor's popularity as a war hero led to his presidential nomination by the Whigs in 1848. "Old Rough and Ready", as he was called by his troops, was the first President elected with no previous political experience. He died after just 16 months in office. Slightly shaded horizontal folds. Stray ink stains. Fine condition.
