35th Division, 

U.S. Army

American Expeditionary Forces

 


1917-1919

     35th Division Insignia, patterned after the "Santa Fe" cross. The 35th division adopted the symbol because one of the trail heads of the Santa Fe trail started from Camp Doniphan, Fort Sill, Oklahoma, where the division trained (Aug 23 1917 to April 16 1918) before embarking for France.  

 

This page is dedicated in memory of  Pvt. Arthur A.  Dickerman, Co. F, 138th U. S. Infantry. The following rosters are made available by Mrs. Pat Galanos of St. Louis, Mo. (a descendant of Pvt. Dickerman) who loaned me her copy of  "From Vauquois Hill to Exermont, A History of the 35th Division", by Clair Kenamore (1919, Guard Publishing Co., St. Louis, Mo.) from which these rosters are derived. Pvt. Dickerman survived the war and returned home, but perhaps to lingering effects of poison gas, he died very suddenly soon after his return.

The 35th Division was created by the assignment of the Missouri and Kansas National Guard units, that were inducted into Federal service on August 4th and 5th, 1917. NOTE: Unless noted, the rosters on this page are those of the parent National Guard units. While the overwhelming majority of men of the 35th division are included, they are not necessarily a complete listing of all the men of the 35th (such as replacements or transfers).
