United State's Wars


The United States has participated in wars since the mid 1600ís with King Philipís War in 1675. I was not familiar with this war, so I decided to see what other wars the United States fought in. I was especially interested in what documents these wars would have used, that my ancestors may have had to sign or be included in. Below are the main wars that the U.S. fought in:
