What regiment was he in? US army.

+7 votes

I found a record for military service for a distant great uncle, in the US Army. Wondering if someone could tell me what regiment/unit he served in, and war if he was in one.

It was in 1900 so I am unsure, most I come across are WW1 or WW2.

Thank you, I couldn't make out what it said after 15th, but after your reply I realize it was short for Infantry. What is "Co"? Commanding officer?
