"Under XXXX" is sometimes a simplistic way of saying the soldier was in the service at a certain time and place. "Under Washington" could simply mean he was in the Continental Army during the AmRevWar, or any myriad of companies, because Washington was the Commander in Chief of ALL the units. It can at the same time be a way of glorifying said person rather than being specific about his actual unit/s. Same with "Under Harrison".
