This hat was worn by an American soldier during the Spanish American War. His name is Ransom Earl Gove, born on September 15, 1879 to Charles Francis Gove and Anna M Foley in Tomah, Wisconsin. USA.
My interest in Ransom Earl Gove came about because of the Journal that he kept while participating in the Puerto Rican Campaign as a member of Company K of the Third Regiment of Wisconsin Volunteers. But itís not what he wrote; itís where he wrote it. He wrote about his adventure on his hat.
