Snap It Up! 1925 Volume I Fifth Corps Area Fort Benjamin Harrison is a fascinating historical document which gives one a surprisingly deep experience and understanding of life in this little remembered voluntary program called the Citizens' Military Training Camps (CMTC). Conceived under President Harding and continued under President Coolidge, the CMTC was part of the government effort to increase military preparedness in the wake of the Great War. A short history of this program along with the major figures in the program's creation is part of the book. The book does not have individual participant photos rather it has group photos by company with rosters. Each company came up with poems, drawings, cartoons, calendars, and stories which tell about aspects of camp life and experience. Articles and candid and posed photos show elements of cavalry, organized sports, religion, and many other subjects concerning life and training at Fort Benjamin Harrison. Additionally, the book has vintage Packard, Stetson Hats, Jewett Motor Coach, Black and Decker ads and other advertisments at the back of volume. The book is in good shape with but does have about a half inch tear in the cloth at the top rear of the spine, minor foxing, and a pencilled price erasure. ; 8vo 8" - 9" tall; 161 pages
