Col. 21st regiment, Phillipine Insurrection questions
Posted 23 May 2019 - 05:06 AM
I read the Armys history of the campaign on their site, and the only ref. to the 21st was their involvement in the fighting south of Manila ( Laguna, etc.), but no mention of its commander.
Any help would be most appreciated.

There are some paid sites such as FOLD3 to which you can subscribe, but I found this page for a Charles A, Williams who served in the Philippines with the 21st Infantry. It may help give you a start in your research.

If you have access to Fold3, you can find him listed in the officer's registers. Here is one excerpt showing that he had been breveted.
