Major Philip Spencer was associated with the Foundry at West Point, New York, where cannons were made; his untimely death in Louisiana is associated (in my private files) with the numerous invasions of Mexico. It is important to know who was in charge of the US Army in Louisiana, who supplied the lead for ammunition, and the settlement of Texas by Austin & Clinton.
