John Henry Asendorf in uniform The War Diary of John Henry Asendorf
The Story of a Pennsylvania Volunteer during the Spanish-American War in the Philippines and the Philippine American War

The Fighting Tenth by Dennis Edward Flake

Historian Dennis Edward Flake has written a book entitled "The Fighting Tenth: The Tenth Pennsylvania Volunteers in the Spanish-American War and the Philippine-American War" which is available from Mary Martin Booksellers. Mr. Flake approached me in 2009 with the idea for a book about the Tenth Pennsylvania Volunteers using my great-grandfather's diary as a backdrop. He painstakingly poured over hundreds of documents matching the contents of the diary with other accounts of the wars, spending countless hours at the Pennsylvania National Guard Archives. I had always hoped a historian of Mr. Flake's abilities would some day undertake such a project and I am thankful for all of his work. Please consider purchasing his book.
