This would be George A. Armes. He had been born in Virginia but fought in the Union army during the Civil War, rising from the rank of private in the 16th Regiment, Virginia Volunteer Infantry to that of major in the regular army after the war (March, 1867). His record during the Civil War and the subsequent Plains Indian Wars seems to have been positive, but in about 1869 he was accused of , among other things, conduct unbecoming an officer and court martialed. He was evidently found guilty, filing a lawsuit later claiming that he had been falsely imprisoned and had suffered damages to his reputation. He was in and out of the army at least twice and seems to have had a knack for creating conflict when dealing with others. He died in 1919 and is buried in Arlington National Cemetery.
