If you are like me, you may know practically nothing at all about the Mexican War. My kids are Texan by birth and I may know that there was such a war and that about exhausts my familiarity with this particular military conflict.
And, that doesn’t stop me from appreciating that fold3 has a Mexican War Service Records which were the topic of a recent blog post. This collection includes service records for volunteers who served from MS, PA, TN, TX and the Mormon Battalion (for which there are also Pension Files available).
Now I just need to find someone to research who might have served in this war!
Did one of your ancestor’s serve? If so, please let us know!
Editor’s Note: When dealing with any military conflict and/or an activity where there would have been Federal involvement, I check out the
site to see what resources that site might have. As usual, I found some interesting resources at that site and then had to look further! NARA
Are there other great sites about this war?
