Can anyone tell me if soldiers from Illinois had to sign-up in Illinois, or did they have to go to another state to do this? Illinois State Archives said the Muster Rolls of Spanish American War units "was not found". I am researching one John Luther Selby (sometimes spelled Sellbee) who lived in Illinois, but died of Malaria(?) in a hospital on the West Coast. We don't know which hospital or which city. If no Muster Rolls exist, does anyone have knowledge of a hospital on the West Coast (San Francisco??)
that handled soldiers that had contracted a disease?
Many thanks for any suggestions
