More Indiana Soldiers & Photos-Page 1..

There has been so much interest in my Indiana soldier & photo, pages I have decided to do one more. However this page will be a little different as there will be no photo’s on the page but there will be a link to them.

Here is how this page will work, I will list all the information I have on the person or notes, then at the end of the information I will add a link to the photo where you can copy it if you like. One reason I’m doing it this way is, you well get a bigger and clearer photo.
Note. Most photo's will have a enlargeing box.
