Abstract:
N. W. \"Nick\" Warren of Halifax County served three tours in the U.S. Army, and when he was discharged, an extra sheet had to be added to his papers listing the 127 engagements in which he took part. His first tour was three years, and on the way home the Spanish-American War broke out; he signed for two more years. On the way home from Cuba, soldiers were needed to put down the Boxer Rebellion in China. There he and friends captured the Chinese mint and exchanged many of the silver bars for American money. They dumped much of the rest into the Yangtze River. After escaping a massacre of soldiers in the Philippines, he returned to Halifax County, married, and settled down.
