Extractions: The Wars of 1812 and 1846 and the Spanish American War The USS CONSTITUTION met and defeated HMS GUERRIERE, the first in a grand succession of victories in the War of 1812. It was during this ferocious battle that the seamen, astonished at the way the British cannonballs were bouncing off the Constitution's hull, cried out -"Her sides are made of iron!" Thus, her nickname,"Old Ironsides." What was not known at the time was the fact that a U.S. Marine, serving aboard Old Ironsides, as George Baker, was actually Lucy Brewer. Eventually the Marine Corps reluctantly acknowledged that Lucy Brewer was perhaps the very first woman marine. Here's the way the Historical Division of the USMC tells the Lucy Brewer story: Mrs. Borginis and a Mrs.Foley enlisted with their husbands into the 8th calvary at the Jefferson Barracks, Mo. Sarah became the principal cook at Fort Brown (Fort Texas) and stayed on the job when General Taylor moved most of his troops to the mouth of the Rio Grande. However, when the Mexicans began bombarding Fort Texas, (Fort Brown) from their positions at Matamoros, she was isssued a musket. It's said she took an active part in the ensuing fray, never missing a target or preparing a meal. Gen. Zachary Taylor breveted her to colonel, making her the first female colonel of the U.S.Army. She moved to El Paso and opened a hotel. For years it was a favorite stop of '49ers heading for the California gold fields. She later moved to Arizona and ran a Yuma saloon until her death in 1866. Col. Borginis was buried at Fort Yuma with full Military Honors - the first woman to be a ranking U.S.Army officer - albeit a brevet one.

Extractions: Mid-day of Wednesday November 30, 1864, a 31,000 strong Confederate force under Gen. John Bell Hood finally cornered the 26,000 man Federal Army of Gen. John M. Schofield at Franklin, Tennessee. Late that afternoon, 100 regiments of the South's best soldiers, numbering 20,000, deployed along a two mile wide front and began a spectacular converging assault upon 17,000 Federals strongly entrenched on the south edge of the town. What then occurred in the next five hours at Franklin was one the the great cataclysmic tragedies of the American Civil War. (See A Brief Telling of the Battle of Franklin ). For the size of the forces engaged and the short durtion of the fighting, this battle at Franklin ranks among the great blood baths of the Civil War, or of any of the American wars for that matter. This horrific battering of Hood's army at Franklin and its final disintegration two weeks later after the Battle of Nashville essentially ended the war in the western theater.

Genealogy Research - Military Records out of every seven americans fought in the american Revolution, and the next majorsource of information about veterans of US wars. R gen OVERSIZE 973 NEAGLES. http://splnet.spokpl.lib.wa.us/subject/findingaids/genealogy-military.html
Extractions: Military records kept by the U.S. Government about soldiers and sailors who served their country are a major source of information about individuals. The two most important wars for genealogists are the American Revolution (1775-1783) and the Civil War (1861-1865), for these reasons. Approximately one out of every seven Americans fought in the American Revolution, and approximately one out of every ten Americans fought in the Civil War. Because of these statistics, it is worthwhile to investigate the possibility that adult males (13 and up) who were alive during these wars may have fought in them. (Many smaller wars have occurred in U.S. history, and there are records of genealogical value for those conflicts. Use the Genealogical Holdings List as a starting point). Information found in military records includes: date and place of birth of a veteran, date and place of death of that veteran, spouse's name, war(s) served in, state served from, date(s) of service, rank achieved, benefits received, and where the veteran lived after leaving service. In addition to these facts, many people have found personal accounts of the wartime experiences of their relatives. There are many types of records that can center around military service. The two most important are service records (including personal data), and pension records (a good source for information about relatives). For information about all types of military records, see U.S. Military Records, by James Neagles, listed under "Guidebooks."

Extractions: No one has accused Rumsfeld of misleading the press or misrepresenting events on the ground. But post-mortems on previous American wars routinely found that the government exaggerated its successes and minimized its setbacks in its public presentations; indeed the tendency to embroider has been documented back to the Civil War. At moments of national crisis, officials in Washington have on occasion made statements they knew were flat-out untruethe way President Eisenhower did in describing the U-2 spy plane shot down over the Soviet Union in 1960 as a weather research plane. President Nixon hid a massive bombing campaign in Cambodia for more than a year, even falsifying reports sent to the Senate. More often, officials in wartime have given the press and public a partial picture meant to portray events in the best possible light, analysts say. Over time, that instinct has produced inflated accounts of enemy soldiers killed in Vietnam, Iraqi Scud missiles intercepted in the Persian Gulf War and Serbian tanks destroyed in Kosovo.

Extractions: Nearly every person who served in the armed forces has left a record of his or her involvement. Service records, pension records or bounty land records can provide a wealth of information although they were not maintained intentionally for the benefit of genealogists. Before beginning a search, you should know something about the ancestor. In what war did they fight? What service? What branch (cavalry, infantry or artillery)? Are there family stories or souvenirs that provide clues? Keep in mind that some family lore may have exaggerated their deeds. For further information on beginning your search, refer to: Neagles, James C., U.S. Military Records: Guide to Federal and State Source, Colonial America to Present,. Ancestry, 1994. Source The Source: A Guidebook of American Genealogy. (Chapter 9, Research in Military Records), Ancestry, 1997. Military Service Records: A Select Catalog of National Archives Microfilm Publications , National Archives Trust Fund Board, 1985. Pension application files, based on Federal service, usually include both personal and military service information. Pension records are generally available for service from the Revolutionary War through 1916, and may be requested from NARA using NATF Form 85. Pension for service in the Confederate States of America forces were not authorized by the Federal government until 1959. However, some of the former Confederate states did authorize pensions. The various states archives keep these files.

Extractions: The Forums As part of his 1864 spring offensive, Lt. Gen. Ulysses S. Grant ordered Maj. Gen. Franz Sigel to advance south along the Valley Pike to destroy the railroad at Staunton and then to move on the rail complex at Lynchburg. Although outnumbered, Maj. Gen. John C. Breckinridge, former senator and vice president of the US, was able to concentrate scattered CS forces to meet Sigel's army near New Market. Sigel was decisively defeated on 15 May 1864, and the Valley remained in Confederate hands until Maj. Gen. David Hunter renewed the US offensive on 26 May. The battle of New Market is noted for the participation of a battalion of VMI cadets, who distinguished themselves in combat beside veteran troops. The New Market Battlefield Historical Park was established by VMI in 1967. The Hall of Valor was constructed on the battlefield and opened in 1970. The park contains about 280 acres: 24 acres of Shirley's Hill (recently acquired), about 40 acres east of I- 81 around the Pennsylvania monument, and about 215 acres at the Hall of Valor parcel adjacent to the steep bluffs overlooking the North Fork Shenandoah River. The park protects and preserves about ten percent of the core area of the New Market battlefield, but this includes several areas of the most severe infantry fighting. The cavalry field, east of US 11 to Smith's Creek, remains farmland. The village of New Market is listed in the National Register as a historic district.
