for Captain Joseph F. Green, dated February 21, 1863, joins the historic war documents available. Commander Green was a senior naval officer during the Civil War blockade of Charleston, South Carolina, and was ultimately appointed Rear Admiral by President Grant in 1870. This commission bears a bold and dark signature from Abraham Lincoln and is also signed by Gideon Welles, Secretary of the Navy.
From an even earlier American conflict, a military commission signed by James Madison rounds out the group. This fine and historic document appointed James W. Bryson as Second Lt. and was signed by Madison on June 1, 1810. During the War of 1812, Bryson served as assistant quarter master under Gen. James Taylor, paymaster of the Northwestern Army based at Newport Barracks, across the river from Cincinnati.
