Description

The internment card for Charles E.T. Wade. The document provides information including name, rank, company, regiment and other service information, date of death, date of internment and gravesite.

Charles E.T. Wade was born in the West Indies and migrated to Maryland. Before serving in the United States Army, he worked as a laborer. On March 25, 1899, Wade enlisted as a Private in the Company K Ninth United States Cavalry Regiment in Baltimore, Maryland. He served in the Western United States, escorting funds for Native Americans. In the early 1900s, during the Philippine-American War, the Ninth Cavalry was stationed in the Philippine Islands, guarding small villages and military bases. Wade was honorably discharged on March 24, 1902, in Draga, Philippines, and remained there following his service. He married a Philippine woman named Seage Awai Soong and had a daughter, Federica Wade, born in 1910. On July 2, 1935, Wade traveled back to the United States and died three years later on December 10, 1938, in Jacksonville, Florida. He was interned at St. Augustine National Cemetery on December 28, 1938, in section A row 218.

In 2017, the University of Central Florida was one of three universities selected to launch the National Cemetery Administration’s Veterans Legacy Program Project. The program engaged a team of scholars to make the life stories of veterans buried in the Florida National Cemetery available to the public. The project engages UCF students in research and writing and fosters collaboration between students, faculty and local Central Florida schools to produce interactive curriculum for K-12 students. The corresponding website exhibit uses RICHES Mosaic Interface to create a digital archive of related data. The public can use the project-developed augmented-reality app at more than 100 gravesites at the Florida National Cemetery, where they can access the UCF student-authored biographies of veterans.
