Right now this project just has one member, me. I am Christine Preston.

Here are some of the tasks that I think need to be done. I'll be working on them, and could use your help.

  • Add veterans to the category for regiment
  • add any casualties and where they passed
  • add any and all resources that can be found
  • add any special award recipients
  • add any after war reunions among regiment companies
