War Of 1812 11th Infantry Regiment Payment

December 4, 1815, (War of 1812), Manuscript Back Pay Document, For Service in the 11th Infantry Regiment, Lt. J. V. Ranon's Detachment at Burlington Common, Choice Extremely Fine.

Though dated in December of 1815, this 1 page, 4.5" x 7.25" handwritten document is a receipt for payment of military service from February 13 to April 4, 1815, plus 3 months bounty pay. This suggests that the soldier who received this pay and signed this document, "John Hooper," enlisted late in 1814. Burlington Common, where Hooper served, is probably Burlington, Vermont, the site of an important military base during the War of 1812. This payment was made on behalf of the United States by "Jacob Cutter, A(ssistant) D(istrict) Paym(aster)." A witness has also signed in the lower left. A notation, "signed duplicate" in the lower left and the docketing on the back indicate that this is an original, signed duplicate, retained for military records. This document is in excellent condition, with some very light age browning at the bottom, and without any other defects. A wonderful relic from the War of 1812.
