Fold3.com is excited to announce that they have begun adding the following new titles to the site, covering 5 wars and 130 years of U.S. military history:

Records in the War of 1812 Pension Files reveal details of each soldier’s service and family.

Mexican War Service Records

From 1846 to 1848, the war with Mexico determined the southwest border of the U.S. as we know it today. The Mexican War Service Records launch Fold3's commitment to bringing records of this strategic war to our members.

Confederate Casualty Reports

From skirmishes to major battles, documents within the Confederate Casualty Reports describe a unit's role in the conflict and detail casualties, from killed to missing to "slightly" wounded.

World War I Officer Experience Reports

The World War I Officer Experience Reports reveal intriguing accounts by engineers in the American Expeditionary Forces (AEF).

WWII "Old Man's Draft" Registration Cards

In 1942, men between the ages of 45 and 64 were required to register for the draft in order to create an inventory of those who could provide essential skills to the home front during World War II. The "Old Man's Draft" Cards are the result, complete with addresses, dates, and physical descriptions of each registrant.
Watch for more to come as these titles continue to grow and others are added to Fold3.com.
