JONATHAN HEART (1748-1791) served as a volunteer with the 2nd Connecticut from May to December of 1775. He rose through the ranks with many promotions, ultimately to Brigade Major and Inspector on January 2nd, 1781, to June 1783. After the war, Heart attempted to establish a career as a surveyor, but enlisted in the Army and continued to rise through the ranks to Major 2nd United States Infantry on March 4, 1791. He was shot and killed on November 4 of that year in action with Indians during St. Clair’s defeat near Fort Recovery, Ohio
One page 6 ¼ x 8 ¼ DS by Heart, being an order to pay sixty-two pounds, eighteen shillings and eleven pence “being the balance due to Jonathan Hurlbert deceased on the first day of January 1780, as stated by the Committees of the State and of the Army.”
Expected toning, but overall in excellent condition.
