Information was found in the recorded texts of the Annual Encampments of the Wyoming and Colorado Department of the Grand Army of the Republic.

"Let Him Have The Palm, Who Merits It"
In reading the texts of the Annual Encampments I learned that James Moynahan was nominated for position of Department Commander on many occassions and lost. He was successful in 1916 and served to June 1917 two years before he died.
In reading tanscripts, it was inferred that his religion and/or politics were being held against him? (see final paragraph in composite screen shot below)
