Connecticut Governor Joseph Trumbull's Military Appointment To "Major" on June 1st, 1811
(JOSEPH TRUMBULL) (1782-1861), Grandson of Rev. War Governor Jonathan Trumbull, became Governor himself 1849-1850. Plus Signed by... JOHN COTTON SMITH (1765-1845), Connecticut Lt. Governor 1811-12 and Governor during the War of 1812 era 1812-17.
June 1st, 1811-Dated, Official Connecticut Manuscript Document, completely written in the hand of, and Signed, "John Cotton Smith" as Lieutenant General of the Militia of the State of Connecticut - To Joseph Trumbull Esquire," Very Fine. This is the original, 2 page, 8" x 10", pre-War of 1812 Militia Appointment of Trumbull as Smith's personal "Aide-de-Camp, with the rank of Major."

This document also bears Smith's official red wax embossed seal at the lower left, having one minor small piece chipped out. Docket and separate, central notation on the back, 2nd page read: "Major Trumbull - Commission" and "Appointment of Aid to Lieut. Gov. Smith." This historic Militia Appointment is boldly written in rich brown and is very clear and easily readable, with some expected folds. A truly remarkable Connecticut document written from one future Governor of the State, appointing another future Governor of Connecticut as his official military Aide-de-Camp just as the War of 1812 was about to explode.
