Description

Bartholf. This volume from the Images of America collection covers Camp Merritt - located in Bergen County, New Jersey - an embarkation base processing U.S. Army soldiers bound for the battlefields. Chosen for its proximity to roadways, railroads and the Hudson River, this location was pivotal for the rapid movement of large numbers of troops and equipment to the nearby shipping port of Hoboken - processing over one million soldiers and nurses traveling to and from war zones.




Camp Merritt is chronicled by Howard E. Bartholf - who has a personal connection to the site, as his family helped build it - and the book is illustrated with hundreds of black and white photos of the site. 128 pages, 227 B&W photos, 6½"x 9¼", softcover.
