West Point, N.Y.: United States Military Academy Printing Office, 1830.  22 pp. Rare. Excellent condition, with a very few minor scattered spots of foxing. There is a very slight crease at the upper right of each page of the entire publication.

These reports generally include listings of cadets, with age and date of admission, state of birth, and demerits; also lists academic and military staff. Beginning in 1828, reports also include listing of members of Board of Visitors or board of inspection.

At pp. 17-22 is the “Roll of Cadets, Arranged According to Merit in Conduct for the Year Ending 30th June, 1830,” ranking the cadets of each of the four classes in order of merit, and identifying the number of demerits as to each.

Understandably, many of the cadets would subsequently serve in the Black Hawk War, the Seminole Wars, the Mexican-American War, and/or the Civil War; some would be killed in service.

Member of the First Class (42 in all) include: William Pendleton (CS Chief of Artillery, ANV); John B. Magruder (CS General); Albert Bledsoe (Asst. Sec. or War, CS); Lloyd Beall (commander of CS Marine Corps).

Members of the Second Class (36 in all) include: George W. Turner (killed in raid on Harper’s Ferry); Lucius B. Northrup (Commissary General for the Confederacy); Samuel R. Curtis (Union general); Thomas J. McKean (Union general); Henry Van Rensselaer (Union general); Henry Van Cleve (Union general); Henry Clay, Jr. (Killed at the Battle of Buena Vista); Jacob Ammen (Union general); Andrew A. Humphreys (Chief Engineer of the Army).

Members of the Third Class (59 in all) include: Philip St. George Cooke (CS General); Humphrey Marshall (CS General); George Cass (a president of the Northern Pacific Railroad).

Members of the Fourth Class (75 in all) include: John Barnard (Chief Engineer of the Army of the Potomac); Francis H. Smith (Director of Virginia Military Academy); William W. S. Bliss (Chief of Staff to Gen. Zachary Taylor in the Mexican War, and Taylor’s personal secretary as President); Henry DuPont (ran his family’s gunpowder manufacturing business); Abraham C.
