Re: [War w/Spain] Abbreviation "U.S.S.C."

Thanks for the Heitman data. Illustrates the problem of finding valid data "between wars" and the peculiar status of the signal corps/service during its first decade or so. (We started off the Civil War with a one-man Signal Officer of the Army. Early composition comprised details, assignments, "acting." Formal legislation of 1863 is provisional. Slipping thru on a budgetary inclusion post-war was like CPR. Recall the words of Sherman, who suggested that the meteorologically-obsessed post-war establishment, tiny as it was, should be transferred to the Smithsonian!)
