Mutualist Show and Tell


Wm. B. Greene
2d. Lieut. 7th U.S. Infy. [1840]

Here's the autograph of William Batchelder Greene during his first period of service in the U.S. Army, during the Second Seminole War. This was an auction find, and a pleasantly inexpensive one. The dealer informs me that he purchased this as part of a collection in the town where I'm currently living. It is truly a small world.
