Book Condition   Very Good

Seller ID   72

The Defender Volume II Third Corps Area Camp Meade Maryland 1924 is a fascinating historical document which gives one a surprisingly deep experience and understanding of life in this little remembered voluntary program called the Citizens' Military Training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, schedules, 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 Camp Meade. Additionally, the book has vintage United States Gypsum Corporation, Chicago, Milwaukee & St. Paul RR, Packard Motor Company, Wrigley Gum, Montgomery Ward, and other advertisments at the back of volume. The book is in very good shape with some minor corner wear at the bottom front cover. ; 8vo 8" - 9" tall; 158 pages
