Is this the book you're looking for:

The Twenty-eighth division : Pennsylvania's guard in the world war; forewards by the commanding generals. The history of the Keystone or Iron division in the world war. Also the history and traditions of the Pennsylvania national guard and its predecessor the Pennsylvania militia
Author: Edward Martin; Edwin Sherman Wallace
Publisher: Pittsburgh, Pa. : 28th Division Publishing Co., [©1923-24]

I don't know of anyone that has this book and I couldn't find it in the online catalog of my city library. It seems that you need to look-up something in a specific page (Volume IV, page 108). There's a website where you can search the collection of thousands of libraries worldwide. I did a search and found the book in 100 libraries in the USA. If you choose one library (or as many as you want) and email the staff in the reference desk, they might be able to look up the information you are seeking.

I hope this helps.

Try this link:

Let me know if you're successful in contacting any of the libraries. I could have access to the book later this month when I'm in Atlanta. According to the search results, there's a copy of Martin's book at the Woodruff Library Storage at Emory University in Atlanta. A request could be made via email to bring the book from storage. I'll be in the area close to Emory and could swing by the library.
