Washington: 1918. unbound. 1 page, 20 x 16 inches, Washington, July 12, 1918 -- a partly printed World War I military appointment, appointing William Crozier to the rank of Major General of the line, countersigned by Newton D. Baker as Secretary of War. This document has never been folded and maintains its original luster with the Presidential seal still attached. All signatures are dark and bold. William Crozier (1855 - 1942) was a highly respected American Army officer, having fought in the Indian campaigns, inventor of the Buffington-Crozier gun carriage, and a delegate to the International Peace Conference at the Hague. During World War I, he was a member of the Supreme War Council working closely with his opposite number in the British Government, Winston S. Churchill. This document would prove to be Crozier's last and most important military appointment. Near fine condition.
