Summary Records of military veterans who served in conflicts ranging from the War of 1812 to the Korean War, taken from a variety of sources, and primarily covering residents of Will County, Illinois. The first and largest record (Fifteen Years Ago or the Patriotism of Will County) is a handwritten transcription of an 1876 publication covering the U.S. Civil War. Most of the subsequent records are photocopies of typewritten volumes (selected from the years 1973-1989) of "Where the Trails Cross," a periodical containing historical records and anecdotes.
