at Cantigny, France
My friend, regular contributor, and former SAC Air Force and traveling mate Steve Miller is simply the best at in-depth photographic studies of WWI subjects.
Recently Steve visited Fort Meade, MD, which was built during the war as one of the cantonments to train America's new army. In those days, it was known as "Camp Meade, of course." All the photos are Steve's, except the first old image which I found at National Archives.
Part 2, will appear in tomorrow's edition of Roads to the Great War.
