Gilder Lehrman Collection #: GLC00267.242 Author/Creator: Stewart, William Morris (1827-1909) Place Written: Washington, D.C. Type: Pamphlet Date: 14 May 1888 Pagination: 1 v. : 153 p. ; 22.7 x 14.8 cm.
Report submitted by William Stewart, Senator from Nevada and a member of the Committee on Military Affairs, to the Senate as a whole. Requests repayment of money spent during the Civil War by the territorial government of Nevada. Says most of the money was spent on troops to protect the route between Salt Lake City and the Sierra Nevada Mountains. Indian raids and the suspect loyalty of the Mormons necessitated the mustering of the militia. Consists of various correspondence pertaining to the claims as well as various charts and tabulations of money spent in the 1860s. Dated from the date the report was ordered to be printed. Pages seems to have been pulled from a larger book.
