  1. Some sources have incorrectly spelled the middle name of Nathaniel as "Prentiss." All military historians consulted (Eicher, Foote, Warner) spell it "Prentiss", which implies that the U.S. Army personnel records used that form. Such a spelling does not appear in other important documents, on his tombstone, or in many letters to him from relatives. There is only one document in the voluminous Banks manuscript collections in which Nathaniel himself spelled his middle name. This was a partially completed fraternity application now at the American Antiquarian Society. He then spelled the name "Prentice". The general declined to answer requests for biographical sketches, and compilers relying on earlier, faulty sketches apparently repeated this erroneous "Prentiss" spelling.
