The year of his birth would match that of the age of the Captain Alfred Glascock killed in Mesves, France during World War I.

Michael Robert Patterson was born in Arlington and is the son of a former officer of the US Army. So it was no wonder that sooner or later his interests drew him to American history and especially to American military history.
