Re: trying to track info on springfield

I was lucky enough to pick up an "SRS hit" rifle that lettered to an Illinois volunteer infantry unit and fortunately the soldier was identified and I got his service records as well. He was at San Juan Hill but guarded prisoners there. He also became ill with malaria. I don't have all the details as the records are in North Dakota and I'm in Colorado. This is my only hit out of about 40 or so rifles and carbines.
