Trying to figure out if my ancestor James McHugh served in the Mexican War. He was an Irish Immigrant.
On the Bureau of Land Management, I found some records one dating from 1850 that says James McHugh was in the Louisiana Battalion of Mounted Volunteers and received land in Wisconsin.
He also had a brother Francis McHugh that also settled with him in Sauk County Wisconsin. They might have served together.. but I am not sure.
Whats the best place to look for Mexican War veterans?
