A receipt for a fife and drum purchased during the Revolutionary War by Colonel Abraham Lincoln of the Virginia Militia; grandfather of our 16th President. Even though President Lincoln never got the opportunity to meet his grandfather, who died long before 1809, he was well aware of his grandfather's service during the Revolutionary War.
