    Default Sgt William W. Conner 6th Mass, Spanish American War Uniform

    This uniform from Sgt W.W. Conner was passed on to me about 30 years ago from a close friend who in turn received it from a relative of Sgt Conner. Sgt Conner served with Company M, 6th Regt, Mass National Guard. He served throughout Puerto Rico during the Spanish American War in 1898. Among his possessions was his diary which covers his day by day experience starting on May 5, 1898 and ending October 16, 1898 when he was coming home having been hospitalized for malaria. The daily entries describe camp life, clothing issue, battles and in general daily life during the war. His uniform consist of private purchase Campaign hat, Tunic with marksmanship badges on collar and marksmanship medal on chest, white Sgt stripes. 45-70 Cart belt with Mass buckle, Canteen, Haver Sack. Pants with white stripe, Canvas leggings and 3/4 boots. A pretty much complete NCO documented uniform from the little known war.

    Really nice San/Am infantry uniform.
    Does the hat have vents in it?

    Steve,
    Yes it has vents, however they are not a "Star" but rather a circle of pin holes with a larger center hole and a number of very small holes within the circle. You have to look close to see them.
