NOTE # 1: The article abruptly ended at this point, simply because this small segment was
all that had been clipped from the old newspaper.

NOTE # 2: The article includes two dates, hand-written in faded pencil:


''March 2nd, 1919,'' is written in the top margin of the old newspaper clipping.
''Feb. 10, 1919,'' (the date that Albert Fetterman died), was also hand-written directly above Albert's name in the list of reported casualties.
