General Green Clay’s military career was very imposing. He served in the Revolutionary War, and fought alongside Daniel Boone in defending Boonesborough. Arguably Clay’s most impressive service was as a Brigadier-General in the War of 1812.

In an inventory of General Green Clay’s possessions from Fort Meigs there is a sword listed in with his personal belongings. The sword now on display at White Hall is believed to be the Green Clay sword. The sword has been handed down from generation to generation of Clay family members. Below is a listing of its many owners.
