Date Icon Publish Date

William Watson Fiscus, Jr. was born in Apollo, Pensylvania, on 7 June 1875. He won his appointment to the Academy on his 17th birthday and joined the United States Military Academy Class of 1898 a week after graduating from high school.

He chose Infantry as his branch and soon was in Cuba. As a Cadet he had contracted typhoid fever and suffered a relapse when he reached the tropical climate. He returned to Fort Wadsworth, New York, and recovered sufficiently to rejoin his regiment in Puerto Rico and then travel to the Philippine Islands, where he saw limited action.

He served as an instructor at West Point for a year, requested a transfer and was sent back to the Philippines. He again became ill and died of a cerebral hemorrhage on 12 January 1902. He was 27 years old.
