After Congress passed resolutions of intervention in April of 1898, the President issued a proclamation calling for 125,000 volunteers to serve in the army for two years in what came to be known as the Spanish-American War. This database is a list of Indiana residents who answered the call. It provides the volunteer's name and rank, as well as location of enlistment. Enlistment and discharge dates are also included. With the names of over 7800 men, this can be a helpful collection for researchers of ancestors in the state of Indiana around the turn of the twentieth century.
