In honor of Veteran's Day, we want to share news of some recent additions to Our Military Heritage from three conflicts, starting with the Civil War pension file of Samuel Rose of the 22nd Iowa, who died in St. James Hospital in New Orleans on September 28, 1863 of chronic diarrhea, leaving a wife and three children. The file includes affidavits on his service, death and needs of the family, including the dates of birth for all three children and the date and place of death for his widow in 1895.
 
For the Spanish-American War, we have digital of the Official Souvenir of Michigan Volunteers of ’98, published by G.F. Sterling Company in Detroit. The document includes muster rolls for the 31st through 35 regiments of Michigan volunteers and naval reserves, as well as a chronology of events and photographs of companies, groups and individuals. Accompanying the document is an every name and key word index.
 
Finally, we have the World War II collection of John Perry. Perrey served in the Navy from 1943 to 1946 and recounts his service activities, and includes images of his honorable discharge and other documents, photographs and the souvenir booklet of the Third Graduating Class of the U.S. Naval Radio School (1944).

Thanks to the donors who allow us to share these items with you.
