New UDC Find for WW1 Veteran


Recommended Posts

Today's find. Cross of Military Service issued by the United Daughters of the Confederacy to James William McCann who served in the Great War as a Sergeant in the U.S. Army. As the certificate states, he is a lineal descendant of John Foster McCann, a soldier who served with the Texas Militia, 3rd District during the War between the States. Numbered medal comes with its original box with matching number. Also have a framed colorized picture of Sgt. McCann with his named written on the back. I have not removed the medal from the backing. No research has been done on either soldier. I'll start on that later today. Enjoy!

 

Thanks, Al.

"I have only two men out of my company and 20 out of some other company. We need support, but it is almost suicide to try to get it here as we are swept by machine gun fire and constant barrage is on us. I have no one on my left and only a few on my right. I will hold." (Message sent by 1st Lt. Clifton B. Cates. USMC, 96th Co., Soissons, 19 July 1918 - later 19th Commandant of the Marine Corps 1948-1952)

Thanks for sharing.

Thanks Kevin. I have only found one before and it did not have all of the provenance that this one has. But I'm not having much luck on getting any info about this Doughboy's Army history. Thanks, Al.
