71ST REGIMENT SOLDIERS
Men of the New York Command Killed or Wounded Before Santiago.
Charles P. F. Cushing.
Charles P. F. Cushing of Company C, reported killed, lived with his mother at 322 West Forty-second Street. He was twenty-two years old, and enlisted at the breaking out of the war with his mother's consent. He told her that he or his brother should go to the front, and as he was the eldest, he asked for the privilege. He was a graduate of the University of Ottawa in 1895, and was employed in the Produce Exchange, having been assured when he enlisted that his place would be kept open for him.
