Caswell County in the World War 1917-1918

Anderson, George A., Compiler. Caswell County in the World War 1917-1918: Service Records of Caswell County [White] Men. Raleigh: Edwards and Broughton Printing Co., 1921.

After World War I concluded, the Caswell County Commissioners asked George A. Anderson (then Superintendent of Education) to write character sketches of the Caswell County soldiers who served during World War I. Unfortunately, either this request was limited to white soldiers or Anderson so interpreted the request.

The book is dedicated to four white Caswell County soldiers known to have died: Benjamin Franklin Brooks; Algernon Sidney Neal; Roy Patillo; and George Thomas Warren. There were more, but Anderson apparently did not have adequate documentation. See the photograph of the 1929 World War I memorial, which itself is incomplete

Anderson also described the efforts of the American Red Cross (Caswell County Chapter), the registration of men for the draft, the contributions of Robert L. Mitchelle, Robert Thomas Wilson, the Legal Advisory Board, E. F. Upchurch, those who helped with occupational cards, the Y.M.C.A., Cary H. King, J. F. Walters, Franklin Rudolph Warren, Dr. Stephen Arnold Malloy, and Dr. Robert Franklin Warren.

The book also describes the Caswell County Militia and lists its members.

To see this book online go to Caswell County in the World War. It is a large PDF file and may take a while to load.
