William Duane to have the Army adopt his textbook on the elements of military discipline as well as his Military Dictionary 12A-F6. Other documents concerning the Academy include a report on an investigation of complaints of harsh discipline and official harassment of cadets 16A-G Other records include petitions both for and against proposals to initiate rifle practice and military training in schools and colleges 60A- H Many petitions are pleas from American inventors who sought congressional approval of their inventions.
During the 19th century, the committee was asked to consider the following inventions: an explosive mine for protecting ports, harbors, and navigable waters 13A-G7. The petition promoting Dr. Solomon Andrews' "aerial ship" with inflatable cylinders includes a photograph of the machine 38A-G In the committee received C. Zeglen's proposals for the use of improved bulletproof cloth 58A-H State legislatures, civic associations, and former Army personnel unceasingly and unsuccessfully called upon Congress to establish a western armory 19A-G The committee did report favorably on petitions and memorials concerning the Federal armory at Harpers Ferry, the status of the armory's employees, and efforts of the Winchester and Potomac Railroad to obtain a right-of-way through Harpers Ferry 20A-G Proposals to build forts and posts to protect western frontiersmen and emigrants to California and Oregon, and to construct or improve roads to expedite the movement of troops and settlers westward also received committee consideration 27A-G Roosevelt's military buildup plans 76A-H The Selective Service Act became law on May 18, , and the records include petitions favoring the draft as a preparedness measure from groups such as students from Princeton University, the American Peace and Arbitration League, and the American Legion 64A-H Members of Mennonite congregations also prayed for exemption from the law on religious grounds 65A-H After World War I, the Bridgeport, CT, post of the American Legion demanded that Congress permanently deny citizenship to all who had claimed exemption from military service in because they were aliens 67A-H A proposed system of peacetime universal military training after the war faced bitter opposition from various church, labor, and citizens' groups 78A-H Petitions about these subjects are among the records of most Congresses, including those of the 78th Congress 44 , which contain petitions calling for the promotion of American prisoners of the Japanese in World War II 78A-H Some petitions concern the rank of officers and enlisted men 47A-H Researchers who are seeking information on the administration of the early 19th-century Army may find the document accompanying William Hobby's petition to be of interest.
The widespread opposition and protest to the operation of canteens on Army posts led to the submission of many petitions and memorials to the committee. Other organizations such as the Spanish American Veterans Association and the National German American Alliance just as vigorously demanded the repeal of the law and their efforts eventually were rewarded 59A-H Union-organized miners in Colorado demanded that President Theodore Roosevelt act to halt the use of State militia against them and to end their detention in "bull pens" 58A-H Other miscellaneous items include demands from Indiana citizens that Confederate prisoners in Northern camps be shown the same "diabolical and hellish brutality" and "barbarous treatment" that Union prisoners received in Rebel stockades in the Civil War South 38A-G William T.
Sherman, who performed special duty on the Pacific coast 31A-G Oatman's captive sister who had become the wife of a Mojave chief 34A-G Another set of petitions and memorials include protests from citizens of San Diego and other California communities against the return of previously interned Japanese-Americans to their homes on the West Coast 78A-H After other types of documents are in the files.
These include technical publications, bound transcripts of committee hearings, and legislative calendars. The committee papers are related directly to the petitions and memorials and pertain to the same subjects. Like the petitions, the pre documents referred to below are from select committees. They cover claims of veterans for pensions, bounty lands, and compensation for services rendered, property lost, and injuries sustained in war. Widows of veterans, deceased servicemen or other military personnel sought pensions, annuities, or other relief. A typical early claims file is one for Pamela Adams, the widow of an Army officer who was killed in the Black Hawk War of , which consists of a 2-page report on her petition 23A-D In sharp contrast is the substantial file relating to the claim of Anna Ella Carroll of Maryland who sought compensation for "military and other services" offered to the Union during the Civil War; she supported her claim with a copy of Sarah Ellen Blackwell's publication, A Military Genius, Life of Anna Ella Carroll of Maryland and several other documents 52A-F Also included is a subsequent and equally unsuccessful prayer of the Mormon Governor for indemnification for losses sustained during the U.
Army's punitive expedition into Utah Territory 35A-D They include bills, resolutions, and proposals to increase the efficiency and improve the organization of the militia and the National Guard 13A-D8. There are also hearings and reports relating to the establishment of the U. Air Service as an independent branch of the Army 66A-F Records relating to sundry Army appropriation bills are included in the committee papers for several Congresses 64A-F Many of the early files concern the Military Academy, its academic program 22A- D The committee also considered the Academy's need for science professors 19A- D Some records pertain to discipline problems such as student infractions 20A-D Taft asking for authority to send military instructors to Chile and to compensate instructors in Cuba 62A-F The papers include reports on such inventions as a "proposed floating battery" 12A-C6.
Also included are files on the contested patent claims of Robert P. Parrott and John B. Read for improved projectiles for rifled ordnance 54A-F Proposals for new or improved military and veterans' facilities include files on armories and arsenals 69A-F The construction of an armory for ordnance manufacture in the West engaged the committee's consideration throughout the antebellum period 12A-C6.
The building of military roads west of the Appalachians also was a subject that constantly required the committee's attention given the importance of such roads to military operations and the westward movement of American settlers 19A-D Such records are available in files on mutinous Tennessee militiamen 20A-D
