Description
 
The Continental Army was established in 1775 by Congress after the outbreak of the American Revolutionary War to help the 13 Colonies in their revolt against British Rule. George Washington was the General and Commander-in-Chief of the Continental Army throughout the war. In 1791 President George Washington and Secretary of War Henry Knox disbanded the Continental Army and created the Legion of the United States which was largely created from the 1st and 2nd Regiments of the Continental Army. In 1796, the Legion was discontinued to form the modern day United States Army.

This rare Continental Army Note receipt was issued in 1790 from the Treasury Office to Jeremiah Buell and is signed by Treasurer J Huntington. Excellent condition.
