Van Zandt County Genealogical Society

The following pages are from "A Call to Arms," a book compiled by Sue Wilkinson and posted with her permission on this website. It contains the stories and listings of the Van Zandt County draftees of the period during World War I, "The War to End All Wars." This volume was compiled and transcribed from original sources from the Canton Herald, the Grand Saline Sun and the Wills Point Chronicle. This book is still available for purchase. For information contact Sue Wilkinson. We thank her very much for her generousity in allowing the society to post this book in its entirety on this site.

On the following pages is a complete list of the men of Van Zandt county subject to army draft. We have arranged the names by post office addresses as given on the registration cards and placed them in alphabetical order.
Editor's note… I deleted the draft numbers, as they would serve no purpose. The men are listed alphabetically by the town.
