LINCOLN, Benjamin (1733-1810) In 1777, as a major general of continental forces, he operated effectively on the flank of the British army in upstate New York, contributing to the American victory at Saratoga. He did not, however, prove a success in a senior independent command. Leading Washington's southern forces, he withdrew his army into Charleston, S.C., where, besieged, he surrendered in May 1779. Exchanged later in the year, Lincoln fought at Yorktown (1781), served a term as war secretary (1781--83), and led militia forces against Daniel Shays's rebels (1787). Document Signed, “B. Lincoln” as Port of Marblehead Collector, 9-1/2” x 5”, October 20, 1804. Lincoln acknowledges 1 cask of Wine, fifty-six gallons. VG.
