A guide to help you determine when and-or if your ancestor fought in one of the American Wars. The first chart lists the wars chronologically, the second alphabetically.

Use the following tables to determine in which wars an ancestor may have served.The first column indicates the name of the war, and the second its years of duration. The third column tells the typical birth years for men entered in that war, although younger or older soldiers may have enlisted. The fourth column indicates the typical ages of those serving in each war.
