FIRST EDITION of the regimental history of the 24th Infantry owned by a veteran of the unit. Nathaniel G. Jones initially served as a private with the 25th Infantry Regiment, stationed at Fort Logan, Colorado and seeing action during the Philippine-American War. The 24th and the 25th Infantry Regiments were both deployed in 1899 to the Philippine Islands to help suppress guerrilla activity. The 25th stayed until 1902 and the 24th returned in 1905 and 1911. Jones served in the initial deployment at Iba, Zambales and San Felipe. It is unclear when he transferred to the 24th or was promoted to sergeant as indicated by his ownership inscription.
