The material for this file was copied from a booklet published in November 1888 by Post #586, the Captain May H. Stacy Post, in the City of Oswego, New York. Post #586 was chartered May 30, 1886 and was named for Captain May H. Stacy of the 12th U.S. Infantry. Captain Stacy is buried in Chester, Pennsylvania.

Scans of the booklet were kindly sent to me in January 2003 by Sallie Bailey, who is a descendant of Henry W. Whitham, adjutant of the post and a veteran of the 12th N.Y. Volunteer Cavalry. Henry Whitham was the paternal grandfather of Sallie's mother.
