Notes & Acknowledgement:

    This list was compiled by Dan Burrows,, way back in 1998 or so, and I picked up a copy of it shortly thereafter, from the Dutch-Colonies mailing list at, my current provider.

    This list, as big as it is, is far from comprehensive, and eagle-eyed readers will have noted that it ends in 1902 with the Philippine Insurrection. The United States has gotten involved in a great many wars and "police actions" since then, and as time permits, I will be updating this list to include as many of those as I can find. In the meantime, enjoy what there is. A list like this certainly gives you pause. It makes you wonder just how peaceful Americans really are.....

    If you'd like to add to this list please feel free to contact me at I'd love to hear from you.

    All my best,
