For the next two or three blog posts I’ll be looking at some enlistment and service records that I thought were from the Mankato Amory, but later learned through a note that was mixed in with the records that they were from the St. Peter Armory.

In the first batch or records they deal specifically with the maintenance of the lakes/ponds around the Camp Ripley area.
