The excerpt is called “Montana readied soldiers for the Spanish-American War” and deals with Montana’s involvement in the Spanish-American War, which they really arrived too late for – 11 days to be exact.
You can read all about the troops and where they came from, as well as some of their limited involvement.
I’ve got about 20 pages on this in the book, so if you’re interested in Montanans in foreign wars you’ll really get your fill.
Here are a few pictures that appear in the book but not in the article. Enjoy!
