Description
This collection was donated by Richard W. Burgemeister and contains Spanish American War-era correspondence and correspondence from the Philippine-American War in 1899. The letters were written by James G. Miller, whom the donor notes was part of Company G of the Second South Carolina Volunteers during the time of the Spanish-American war, and Lynton E. Athey, a bugler with Company H. of the Idaho Volunteer Infantry who was stationed in the Philippines at the start of the Philippine-American war.
Background
Lynton Athey was a bugler with Company H. of the Idaho Volunteer Infantry. His birth and death date are not known but records suggest he may have been born in Oregon on July 28, 1878. A World War II draft card from a Lynton E. Athey appears to contain the same signature as on the letters.
