Abstract:

Resolutions honoring Battle of Washita casualty, Capt. Louis M. Hamilton, passed Dec. 4, 1868, at a meeting of the officers of the Seventh Cavalry, held on the Canadian River in Indian Territory (probably at Camp Supply).

George Armstong Custer, who signed the resolutions, presided over the meeting and Robert Mayhew West served as its secretary. Noted are "the respect and estimation in which the deceased was held," and the fact that Hamilton's grandfather, Alexander Hamilton, had also served his country with honor and devotion. Copies of the resolution were directed to be sent to Hamilton's relatives, the Army and Navy journal, and the Daily Eagle (Poughkeepsie, N.Y., newspaper).
