Mexican War Veterans Of Henry County, IN
1846 - 1848
The following is a list of Henry county veterans of the war with Mexico. Most of these veterans served in company "H" of the 5th regiment of the Indiana Volunteers, which was made up of mostly local residents, mainly Fall Creek Township. This list includes Amos Brown, at the time a 23 year old, African-American who joined as an Officer's cook and was later mustered in as a regular paid member of the Regiment, thus becoming the first African-American member of the United States military.
This list, I know, is not complete. If anyone has any other veterans that are not listed or know of mistakes, please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org and make me aware of them.
