in 2007 you wrote to Mr Mayeux
" some time ago you posted a comment about the suicide of John Elliott Hart, Captain of the Albatross, in which you mentioned the courts martial of Lt. Commanders Cooke and Upton in July, 1863. Have you seen a record of the proceedings of those courts martial? If so,could you tell me where I might find them? Thank you so much! Patricia Bijou"
I am doing research on the USS Arizona and on it's Captain Lieutenant Daniel P Upton and his court martial. I have some of the information on his two court martials.
What also intrigues me is your reference to the sucide of John Eliot Hart, Daniel P Upton also commited sucide sometime after being dismissed from the Navy. I would appreciate any info on the court martial proceedings and any insight you might have on the Albatross and Hart's death
Thank you Nils Kindgren
