(Born Md.)

Simon M. Levya

(Ap'd Md.)

Military History. — Cadet of the Military Academy from its organization1 to Oct. 12, 1802, when he was graduated and promoted in the Army to

Second Lieut., Corps of Engineers, Oct. 12, 1802.

Served: at the Military Academy, 1802‑4, and as Assistant Engineer at Ft. Wilkinson, Ga., 1805.

Resigned (Sick), Sep. 30, 1805.

Died, 1807, in Georgia.


The Author's Note:

1 Was then a Cadet of Artillerists and Engineers, receiving instruction at the post of West Point, N. Y., under the law of 1794 and subsequent acts of Congress.


Thayer's Note:

a Detective work published by Ira Rosenswaike in American Jewish Historical Quarterly, LXI.1‑4, makes it very likely that Simeon (not Simon) Magruder Levy, the first Jewish graduate of the Military Academy, was born in Baltimore in 1774. I am indebted to Steven Maes for the heads‑up.
