Revolutionary War “Upon looking round I do not see any Quarter from which I may so confidently look for Assistance as the Pennsylvania Troops who have shewn so much Spirit & Zeal.” ~General George Washington to Colonel Samuel Miles, August 8, 1776 With the outbreak of war in April 1775, ordinary farmers, artisans, servants, and laborers in Pennsylvania, like elsewhere, mobilized to meet the threat. Volunteer rifle battalions from Berks and Cumberland Counties were quickly raised and joined the Continental Army at Cambridge. During this initial moment and afterward, the“Pennsylvania Troops,” General George Washington wrote to one correspondent, “have shewn much Spirit & Zeal.” Pennsylvania’s revolutionary soldiers had many opportunities to show the general such passion. Between 1775 and 1781, Pennsylvanians fought in key battles and experienced all the hardships of war. They crossed the Delaware with Washington and took part in the battles of Trenton and Princeton in late 1776 and early 1777. They fought at Brandywine and Germantown to repel the British invasion of their state, and they guarded the roads and policed inhabitants after their efforts failed and the British occupied Philadelphia. Hard as these realities were, Pennsylvania’s soldiers also endured the difficulties of Valley Forge and the horror of the

The War of 1812 (referred to as the "Second War of Independence" by some American historians) was a 32-month military conflict between the British Empire and the United States from 1812 to 1815. The British forces were helped by Canadian militia (volunteers) and Native Americans. The War of 1812 was fought in four major theaters on the North American continent: the Atlantic Coast, the Canada–US border, the Gulf Coast and the American West. During the War of 1812, Pennsylvania supplied 28,146 infantry men, 407 cavalry men, 755 artillery men, and 9 men in miscellaneous troops for a total of 29,317 men. For Americans, it was a hard fought war for the sovereignty of a young nation where all the sacrifices of the American Revolution could have been lost. For the United States, the War of 1812 was the conflict that completed the work of the American Revolution. The outcome resolved many issues which remained from the American War of Independence, but involved no boundary changes.

Spanish-American War The Spanish–American War was a conflict fought between Spain and the United States in 1898. Hostilities began in the aftermath of the internal explosion of the USS Maine in Havana harbor in Cuba leading to United States intervention in the Cuban War of Independence. American acquisition of Spain's Pacific possessions led to its involvement in the Philippine Revolution and ultimately in the Philippine–American War. The main issue was Cuban independence; the ten-week war was fought in both the Caribbean and the Pacific. U.S. naval power proved decisive, allowing expeditionary forces to disembark in Cuba against a Spanish garrison already facing nationwide Cuban insurgent attacks and further wasted by yellow fever. Numerically superior Cuban, Philippine, and U.S. forces obtained the surrender of Santiago de Cuba and Manila despite the good performance of some Spanish infantry units and fierce fighting for positions such as San Juan Hill. Casualties and losses: American: (385 killed in action, 2,061 dead from disease) Spanish: 900 killed in action, 15,000 dead from disease (FAMILY MEMBER) DIVISION - LINAGE- WIKI FILE) (Charles Justin Bailey 1st Artillery Regiment -Bailey- Bailey-15981 (Cyrus Painter Markle 10th PA Infantry -Bailey- Markle-788 (Thomas Markle 22nd NY Infantry -Bailey- Markle-790 (Abraham Franklin Markle 5th Regiment, National Guard -Bailey- Markle-798 (James Allen Bailey 8th Regiment -Bailey- Bailey-19205 (Edward S.

World War I also known as the First World War, the Great War, or the War to End All Wars, was a global war originating in Europe that lasted from 28 July 1914 to 11 November 1918. More than 70 million military personnel, including 60 million Europeans, were mobilized in one of the largest wars in history. Over nine million combatants and seven million civilians died as a result of the war. The United States declared war on Germany on April 6, 1917. During the war, the U.S. mobilized over 4 million military personnel and suffered 110,000 deaths, including 43,000 due to the influenza pandemic. Once the United States mobilized the defeat of the Central Powers was inevitable. It was the sheer extra mass of U.S. military assets laid against the European stalemate that made the difference. The legacy of World War I for the United States was that it became a major actor on the International Stage.

World War II was a global war that lasted from 1939 to 1945.It was the bloodiest, most destructive and the deadliest conflict in human history. It involved more countries, cost more money, and killed more people than any other war in human history. More than 50 countries took part . It involved virtually every part of the world. It claimed millions of lives around the world, transformed the lives of countless millions more, altered the political alignment and social structure of the world, and affected generations thereafter. Marked by mass deaths of civilians, including the Holocaust (in which approximately 11 million people were killed and the strategic bombing of industrial and population centers (in which approximately one million were killed, and which included the atomic bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki), it resulted in an estimated 50 million to 85 million fatalities. Most of the world's countries, including all the great powers, fought as part of two military alliances:[ the Allies initially (the United Kingdom and Commonwealth members, France, Poland, Yugoslavia, Greece, Belgium and China), the United States and Soviet Union entered the war in 1941, Every country in the Americas eventually declared war on the Axis, but only Brazil, Canada, Mexico, and the United States actually provided military forces.][ the Axis Powers initially (Germany, Italy and Japan) Finland, Slovakia, Romania, Bulgaria, Hungary, and Thailand joined the Axis later.] The War officially began on September 1, 1939, when Germany attacked Poland. Germany then crushed six countries in three months — Denmark, Norway, Belgium, Luxembourg, The Netherlands, and France — and proceeded to conquer Yugoslavia and Greece. Japan`s attack on Pearl Harbor in 1941 brought the United States into the war on the Allied side. The final battles of the European Theatre of World War II as well as the German surrender to the Western Allies and the Soviet Union took place in late April and early May 1945. On August 14, 1945, it was announced that Japan had surrendered unconditionally to the Allies, effectively ending World War II.

The Korean War was a war between North Korea and South Korea. The war began on 25 June 1950 when North Korea invaded South Korea following a series of clashes along the border. Shot haven’t been fired in the Korean War for nearly 70 years—but that doesn’t mean it’s over. Officially, the Korean War never technically ended. Although the Korean Armistice Agreement brought an end to the hostilities that killed 2.5 million people on July 27, 1953, that ceasefire never gave way to a peace treaty. At the time, South Korea’s president refused to accept the division of Korea. (Howard E.
