fact that this county had no company of national guards at the date of the short but decisive
war with Spain precluded many from enlisting for that war. There were, however, a few who
entered this service and of course were accredited to other sections of Iowa, from which points
they enlisted. The following names were among those found in the Adjutant General's Report of 1900.
Name Town Unit
