Just in time for Veterans Day on Wednesday, November 11, 2009*, the research guide for military records organized by wars and conflicts has been updated. The text now includes more historical context for such key records as those of the Territorial Militia (or Nauvoo Legion) which are some of the earliest records at the Utah State Archives, as they begin in 1849 before Utah was even a territory. Also, excerpts from related laws are included along with links to online versions of the original documents.
*The Research Center will be closed. Normal hours (8 a.m. – 6:30 p.m.) resume Thursday, November 12.
