From the War Department Collection of Revolutionary War Records, 1709-1939, comes this reproduction of Alexander Hamilton’s oath of allegiance. A congressional resolve of February 3, 1778, required all army officers to take the oath before the commander in chief, major general, or brigadier general. The matted replica print of this historic document shows the front and back of Hamilton’s signed oath.
