For the week of September 29, we will be focusing on the War Department. You will find the following documents on the Government Documents display table:

  • Calvary Drill Regulations, United States Army, 1916
  • Information Relative to the Appointment and Admission of Cadets to the United States Military Academy, West Point, N.Y., 1933
  • Information Pamphlet, United States Military Academy, West Point, N.Y., 1945
  • A Manual for Courts-Martial, U.S. Army, 1921
  • Military Notes on Cuba, 1909
  • Military Pyrotechnics: The History and Development of Military Pyrotechnics, v.1, 1919
  • Manual no.8, Technical Equipment of the Signal Corps, 1916
  • Summation of United States Army Military Government Activities in Korea, no.13, October, 1946

I had the pleasure of rocking next to a Korean Veteran at a local restaurant for a few minutes this past Saturday. Of course, I told him about the Summation document!
