[Supplement, Vol. VII: 1920‑1930]

Second Lieutenant, 14th Infantry, June 17, 1874.

Thayer's Note:

a In Vols. III‑V: Iowa (Io. in Vol. III, Ia. in Vols. IV‑V). In Vols. VI‑VII: Georgia (Ga.). The Official Register of the Officers and Cadets of the U. S. Military Academy for 1871, the year of his admission, has Iowa.

I suspect the later Ga. was a misreading of Ia. in the flourished handwriting of the time; there was substantial Swedish immigration to Iowa.
