About Camp Zachary Taylor

Camp Zachary Taylor was established by Act of Congress for the purpose of training men for the World War. It was situated near Louisville, Kentucky.

The original tract comprised two thousand seven hundred acres which was later added to as more space was required to take care of the men assigned to this training ground.

On September 1st of that year approximately 40,000 men had arrived and were quartered at Taylor. It was the home of the 84th Division commanded by Major General Harry C. Hale.

Foreword

In selecting the pictures for this volume an effort was made to show as many sections of the camp as possible, and with individual photographs, groups and miscellaneous scenes to give representation to every branch of the service and to every organization stationed at Camp Zachary Taylor during the height of its military activities.

These pictures were all censored and released for publication by the Intelligence Officer, having been taken under a War Department Permit at a time when military regulations prohibited the use of a camera in camp.
