John G. Winter, 2nd Georgia Infantry Regiment

32934 - Greens Cut, GA

My great-grandfather John G. Winter served during the Spanish-American War. He passed away from a fever he contracted at his camp, 14 days after his unit was furloughed. He is listed by name in the House of Representatives report entitled " "Origin and Spread of Typhoid Fever in U.S. Military Camps During the Spanish War of 1898."
His son, my grandfather, served in WWI and WWII.
