 This is typically the most informative file to get. They usually tell information about his service in the war, his life after the war, and details about his family. They are usually between 50-100 pages long (although some are much longer-- the biggest one we've seen so far was 550 pages!). These are available for soldiers of most of the wars that were fought in the 1800s.
