Portrait of Captain Edward Camden: Volusia County, Florida, April "He put on his Civil War veteran's uniform and tried to register for the draft on the first day of World War I." Sort of puts draft dodging Donald Trump (Drumpf) to shame!
Hot Tip Tuesday! Your immigrant ancestors had to register for the draft regardless of their citizenship, and the records can tell you where they came from. For and early century immigrants, check Civil War and World War I draft records.
