Relics

Many times, we can only connect to the past with the relics left to us by those who served. Here, we plan to give viewers a glimpse into life as a member of the Regiment by sharing the relics left to us by that generation.

 

V          Discharge signed by General George Washington Corporal Lemuel Smith

Our first relic is truly a rarity two times over: (1) it bears the signature of the Commander of the Continental Army; and, (2) is for a Corporal who saw service in the 12th whose total service was longer than that of the Commander. Lemuel Smith served eight years and one month at the time that this was signed.
