Military

usa.gif (12791 bytes) Welcome to Fulton County's Military Page.  Here we hope you find a vast array of resources in locating your ancestor soldier or discovering the histories of wars.   THANK YOU to all of the volunteers who helped put this page together, both to those who have contributed information and to those who spent their personal time and typed these pages!


This page originally debuted for Memorial Day 1999.  In various years since then, Fulton County and its neighboring GenWeb sites unite together to present a "Salute" for Memorial Day in honor of remembering our ancestors and the soldiers that served our country.  It is a day to remember that these men gave their hearts and souls to fight for our freedom that we enjoy today.

About James F. Morrison

Morrison.  With grateful acknowledgement and MANY thanks here, the material is posted with his knowledge.  The articles are his reply to a  request for military information to post on the GenWeb sites (also check on Tryon and Herkimer/Montgomery GenWeb Counties).   Mr. Morrison contributes in many ways his historical interests in Fulton County -   heavily involved in military reenactment groups, military and historical organizations of the area and Town Historian for the City of Gloversville.    Spelling, grammar, punctuation, etc. appear in the following links as they appear in the documents transcribed from.
