On offer is a super 1830 manuscript relic of the Seminole Indian wars being a 16 verse poem handwritten by David Eilenberger, as seen by his signature, about the Tennessee soldiers who went to Florida during the Seminole War fighting with Jackson when he invaded Florida, and then who left when their time was up, but then were jailed and tried for treason. The poem alludes to the scandalous mix-up about service times during the Seminole War and which caused supposed desertion charges to the Tennessee militiamen. There has been a 1 ½ x 2 ¾ piece cut from the top right corner affecting nine lines and small word loss in the 9th, 10th and 11th verses, otherwise good. Overall G.
