SARATOGA SPRINGS, N.Y. (AP) — A nearly 100-year-old scrapbook filled with long-forgotten articles on the American military's pursuit of Pancho Villa along the Mexican border is being donated to the New York State Military Museum.
The Saratogian reports (http://bit.ly/1g1oyTI ) that Saratoga Springs native Ed Susman of West Palm Beach, Fla., is donating the scrapbook Friday to the museum located in his former upstate hometown.
Susman purchased the item from an antiquities dealer. The scrapbook is filled with well-preserved newspaper clippings detailing the New York National Guard's role in the 1916 campaign against Mexican revolutionaries who attacked U.S. towns along the border.
The scrapbook was compiled by relatives of Cpl. Rudolf Graumann of New York City, one of the 15,000 New York Guardsmen from Buffalo to Manhattan who were sent to the U.S.-Mexican border in 1916.
