Currently researching my Family History and am presently tracking an ancester who fought in the Spanish Wars of 1898. He was a soldier attached to the 2nd Massachusetts Infantry and was fighting in Santiago, Cuba. Seems he was invalided out due to some disease or other and was sent back to a quarantine camp in New York State between 13th and 19th August,1898, onboard a transport called `Mobile`. Anyone out have any info on this ship - even a photo if that is not asking too much! Thanks.
