Mexican War; 1846-1848

Per the book, History of Perry County, Penn.,
by Silas Wright, 1873.


Muster roll of Perry County volunteers who served in the army during the Mexican War.

(These troops were nearly all from the "Landisburg Guards" and "Bloomfield Light Infantry" organized companies, but they were not accepted and credited to the county as companies.  These troops participated in the engagements of Buena Vista, Vera Cruz, Cerro Gordo, the bloody battles of Contreras, Cherubusco, Molino del Rey, and Chepultepec.)
