Note. No attempt has been made to include the formidable list of works which have been consulted in the preparation of this book.a West Point is inseparable from American history, and much of the material used was related to the larger subject. The titles given below are of works which have been used in the preparation of this volume, but only those have been included which relate directly to West Point. Original sources have been consulted in the West Point Library; the Library of Congress, Washington, D. C.; and the Research Room of the New York Public Library.
