Detroit campaign flyer "Jay W. Hatch for Justice of the Peace Election April 7th, 1919."

Detroit 1919 9 x 6, photo of him in uniform on the back, newsprint, (unpag) (4 pp). Brittle, toned, torn, creasing, missing small pieces. The campaign literature says that he gave up his Detroit law practice and volunteered in the U.S. Army and was commissioned a 1st Lieutenant in Co. C 7th Infantry, 3rd Division. He was wounded twice in the Battle of the Marne, returned to Detroit and was honorably discharged in January 1919. Upon his return he was persuaded to run for the Justice of the Peace, a race he did win. Another source, a book issued by the Ford Sheridan Association, gives slightly different information. Fort Sheridan was where Hatch went for his training and that book indicates that he was wounded four times during the battles of the Marne and Argonne. This source said that not long after winning office he was taken ill and died on Nov. 15, 1919, due to the wounds he had received in battle. Sold as is.
