b Something is wrong here, probably some confusion with another officer. There is no indication anywhere else in the Register that George Patten was a cavalry­man; the date given for his promotion to Captain is not the date given in Vol. IV; and the date of his retirement differs from the date given in both Vol. V (previous) and Vol. VII (succeeding).
