1. The lease for the Washington Guards, the forerunner of the Washington Artillery has been recently discovered in the Orleans Parish Notarial Archives by the author. The lease started on 1 November 1835, ten days after the Greys left New Orleans for Texas. Any assertion that the Greys received equipment from this company out of Banks Arcade cannot be supported. Orleans Parish Notarial Archives, Notary public William Christy, volume 22, page 363, Lease, Thomas Banks to the Washington Guards, 26 October 1835.
