Finding Aid for the Midwest Genealogy Center Military Collection

The following wars are included in this collection:
Civil War (1861-1865)
Spanish-American War (1898)
World War I (1914-1918)
World War II (1939-1945)
The dates reflect the entirety of the war, not necessarily the time that the United States was involved in the war. Items contributed to this collection came from various donors. The common theme to the items is that they all relate to military service. Most items were donated to the Midwest Genealogy Center with little information about the original owner of the items. Some do contain names and genealogical or background information. The series within the collection are arranged chronologically by war. Not all items in the series fall within the dates of the war, but relate to the war in some way. Items include photographs, ration books, military patches, flags, and printed materials. This collection represents contributions made by individuals and families to the war through the items that they kept.
