Spanish American war in cuba, wounded americans list

Hi all

I have been trying to find a list of the names of those americans wounded in the spanish american war in cuba.

My grandfather apparently had spoken to my older aunts many years ago about being shot through the face, cheek to cheek saving the american flag from falling while in the war in cuba. There was also a mention that he may have been held captive at Morro castle.

He had a large scar on his left cheek and a smaller scar on the right. most of his left side teeth were fake.

His name was Willis Sidney Easveld, for some reason he changed his name from Ari Sigurdur Sverrisson which was his name in iceland. His name could have been spelled many was as he would have had a heavy icelandic accent.


I am hoping I can locate a list of prisoners of war from cuba as well as the names of the 1500 or so wounded.

Thanks to all.

ken
