125 years ago today - Aug 24, 1898

George H. Hudson is the first Mormon to die in combat during a U.S. War. As a private in Battery B of the Utah Light Artillery, he is killed by Filipinos during the Philippine Insurrection at the conclusion of the Spanish-American War of 1898. The Filipinos want true independence, not to be a new colony of the United States.
