Spanish American War Clippings

    With names such as O. O. Howard, Daniel E. Sickles, and Joshua L. Chamberlain, it would appear that some of the disabled veterans who could not take part in the Spanish American War themselves had gathered together to do what they could on the homefront. Here they came together with the idea of raising a naval reserve.
    Towards the end of the month Chamberlain would also offer his service to the Secretary of War, suggesting that his wounds were "much better than for years." The documents can be seen in Post War Recommendations and Bills
