George Washington Signed Revolutionary War Document

One of the holy grail pieces of any historical collection is an authentic signature from the first President of The United States, George Washington. As the General and Commander in Chief of the Forces of the United States Army, Washington lead his men into battle throughout the Revolutionary War. This document, signed at Washington's "Head-Quarters" in Newburgh, New York, was hand signed by Washington as the war was coming to a close. The document discharged RevolutionaryWar soldier, John Thayne Matross from the American Army. It was important for Washington to hand sign each discharge document as it was his personal way of showing gratitude to his soldiers' sacrifice.

The document reads in part: "These are to certify that the Bearer herof John Thayne Matross in the 1st NYork Artillery Regiment, having faithfully served the United States from the 9th August 1781 till the present period and and being enlisted for the War only, hereby discharged from the American Army."

The document has also been signed by Jonathan Trumbull, Jr. and by Officer James Bradford.

Jonathan Trumbull Jr. (1740-1809) was an American politician who served as an aide-de-camp to Washington during the Revolutionary War, later serving in the United States House of Representatives and as 20th Governor of Connecticut.

After issuing an order for the cessation of hostilities on April 19, 1783, George Washington (1732-1799) began to discharge service members from the Army, each with the clarification that until a Treaty of Peace was ratified, the discharged soldiers were to be considered as being on furlough. Although military action in the United States had largely come to an end, the Revolutionary War continued overseas until September 3, 1783, when King George III of Great Britain signed the Treaty of Paris, recognizing the United States of America as sovereign states. George Washington would go on to serve as the first President of the United States, from 1789 to 1797.
