I was doing a search on my great-great-grandfather, Eli Gosse, and came across your 2010 message here on ancestry about the veterans of the Aroostook War. I know that Eli received a pension because he served and, I think, was wounded or injured. I have copies of records from the Maine Legislature which had to pass legislation to approve his pension. I don't know hardly anything about the Aroostook War. Is there any way to find out how he served and in what unit and under whose command?

p.s. did they ever get recognition for their veterna status?
