 p9  Reid T. Stewart
No. 2377, Class of 1871.
Killed by Indians, August 27th, 1872, in Arizona Territory.

Lieutenant Reid T. Stewart was born in Erie, Pennsylvania, March 25th, 1850. He was educated at the Philadelphia High School, and had completed the course at that institution when he entered the Military Academy in 1867. He graduated very creditably in 1871, and was assigned to the Fifth Cavalry, joining that regiment, as it was on its way to Arizona, in December of the same year. He served for a short time at Camp Lowell, A. T., and was then ordered with his company to Camp Crittenden, at which post he was serving at the time of his death.

He had been ordered to Tucson, A. T. as the Judge Advocate of a Court-martial about to assemble there, and while en route to that place, was waylaid and killed by a band of hostile Indians, August 27th, 1872.
