Military Camps orNational Army Cantonments - World War I, WWI

I will be adding more images to this section from Souvenir Folders (postal), postcards, actual photos, and some text from books as I run across new sources of material.

There were in all sixteen cantonments for the National Army and sixteen cantonments for the National Guard. Besides these there were officers' training camps and specials camps for the marine corps, the aviation force, and the reception of men whose training was completed and who were being concentrated immediately prior to being put on transports and sent to the foreign battlefields. A full list of the National Army and the National Guard cantonments with their locations and geographical distribution of the troops which were assigned to each will be of general interest: National Army Cantonments (at this web site).


Note: You may have to reload the web pages several times to get all the images to load because of slow connection speed, servers "timing out" and assorted reasons. Or, just "right click" on them and select "Show Picture."
