Burton Rider Spanish American War Letters 1898 -


Burton enlisted in the New York National Guard unit raised at the start of the Spanish American War. His unit was composed of men from Oswego County. Although he never left the US, he was posted to various camps mostly on the Eastern Seaboard. He wrote many letters to his wife Laura and his children. These letters were preserved by the family and eventually under the care of his grandson and namesake H. Burton Underwood. Burt and his wife painstakingly transcribed the letters and published copies for their children. It was a monumental task but done with care and precision. The results shown in this link are that transcription along with copies of the original letters written over 115 years ago. This is a large pdf but well worth the read.
