My grandfather, Harry C. Lewis, joined the Army November 1901 at Kansas City, Missouri. He was in the 1st Regiment of U.S. Cavalry, Troop M.--I have been unable to find information on this regiment. I believe there is a 1st Volunteer Cavalry, but I think he was in the regular Army. He received a pension and on the pension declaration it says War with Spain, Philippine Insurrection and China Relief Espedition--also with the pension papers there is a letter from the Congress of the US that stated he served in Troop M, 1st Regiment of U.S. Cavalry, Spanish American War. There is a family story about him being on a ship and a boiler blowing-up and his eyes were injured.
Any information would be appreciated. Thanks, Loretta email@example.com
