Library Search Strategies
The Roster of Wisconsin Troops in the Spanish American War (1899) (Pam 56-2736) may be used as a supplementary source to Archives collections. It is arranged by military unit and includes details about transfers and deaths in each unit.
To find general histories and government publications use a " guided search" in the Library Catalog (formerly MadCat). Combine the phrase Spanish American War 1898 with words or phrases such as battle, campaign , or location name, naval operations , aerial operations, or service branch . For instructions on combining research terms in a "guided search," take a moment to review instructions available on the Library Catalog home page.
Unit histories and personal accounts related to this war can be located by using the phrase Spanish American War 1898 combined with phrases like regimental histories , personal narratives , song books , or registers in a Library Catalog "guided search."
