Happy #ManuscriptMonday and happy #PresidentsDay! The official name given to this holiday varies between states—in New York, the official name is Washington’s Birthday—but under any name, it honors presidents including #GeorgeWashington, who was born on February 22, 1732. In honor of Washington, today we’re sharing a manuscript bearing his signature. This manuscript, which is part of the Robert Nittolo Collection, is one of several military discharges signed by Washington in Fort Ticonderoga’s archives. The manuscript (MS.7367), signed by Washington and dated June 13, 1783, discharges Sergeant Ebenezer Leech after six years and five months of service. Leech, a native of Torrington, CT, had begun his service on January 1, 1777 as a drummer in General Moses Hazen’s 2nd Canadian Regiment. He served with the same regiment until his discharge and climbed to the rank of sergeant. The bottom of the discharge, bearing Hazen’s signature, states that “THE above Serj’t Ebenezer Leech has been honored with the BADGE OF MERIT for Six Years faithful Service.” Washington may have felt a kinship with the faithful, long-serving soldiers discharged in 1783 as the war ended. He had served for even longer than Leech, taking his place as the Continental Army’s first and last Commander in Chief on June 19, 1775 and holding it until December 23, 1783, after the Treaty of Paris had been signed and the Continental Army had been disbanded. While Leech and his fellow soldiers received badges of merit for their service, Washington received his own laurels from a grateful nation. He was the subject of glowing tributes, the overwhelming choice for the United States’ first president, and today he is honored by a national holiday. Some tributes, though, were smaller and more personal. On November 1, 1783, a baby was born in the town of Torrington, CT to parents whose names were recorded as Ebenezer Leach and Lettis Leach. The baby’s name was George Washington Leach.
