79th Regiment New York “Highlanders” Recruiting Document… A Really Cool Item!
This 8 x 10 inch document has the official seal of the New York Highlanders at the top along with “Head-Quarters, Mercier House, Corner Broome & Mercier Sts.” It is dated New York September 3, 1862.

The document certifies that John H. Tennant Jr. is a member of the 79th Regiment Highlanders New York State Militia and is taken the oath to defend and support the Constitution and laws of the United States of America. It is signed by Captain Joseph Laing, Recruiting Officer.

John H. Tennant was promoted 3 times ending up as 1st Sergeant in this colorful regiment. What better picture to frame with this document than Don Troiani’s print of a classic 79th New York Highlander… which we will supply out of one of his books. Great item, and the only example we personally have ever seen.
