Paul LaRue & Question Re: Union Navy
In Response To: "A Nation Repays Its Debt" by Paul LaRue ()
Thanks so much for posting Paul's message. I read all the links, but the one which always means the most to me is the url for Paul's history project on the USCT of Ohio.
One of its links took me to the Park Service's Sailor's Database.
Even more interesting was that several of the sailors were inducted at Lima Peru's port Callao in 1864. This was the same year that it went to war with Spain.
Do you know of Union Naval recruiters who would have been in Peru in 1864?
It's a fascinating bit of history to pursue.
