“A World-Traveling Wounded Warrior: The Journeys of Henry Müller”
Finding information about your ancestor’s world travels prior to World War I is difficult but not impossible.  Take the case of Civil War veteran Henry Müller.  Müller joined the army as a substitute at the beginning of the Civil War and suffered a career-ending injury within the first year of his service.  Based on that injury, Müller applied for and was granted a pension.  Despite his injury, Müller rarely stayed in one place.  In fact, records of the Federal government document Müller’s time in Maryland, New York, Pennsylvania, Canada, Germany, and Switzerland, producing an enormous volume of interesting, data-rich records, tracing Müller’s travels, interactions with others, and his state of mind.  Using Müller as an example, Dr. Heger illustrates how you can use records of the Federal Pension Bureau, Department of the Interior, and Department of State to follow the movement of Americans throughout the world.
