Raab Acquires George Washington’s Letter: The Expedition Against the Iroquois

Washington’s Original Orders to General James Clinton Assigning Him to Help Lead the Sullivan Expedition Against the Iroquois

A very rare order of Washington to a named general

The 1779 Sullivan Campaign was designed to break the Iroquois Confederation, a Native American political and military alliance, and did so, effectively changing history.  The expedition broke the Iroquois Confederacy’s organized power, and proved to all involved that the British were incapable of effectively supplying the Iroquois.

Raab has acquired and sold this letter, which kicked off one of the most important military campaigns of the American Revolution. Read it here.
