Camp Custer, at Battle Creek, Michigan, had over 100,000 US Army troops pass through its doors between 1917-1919.

SCARCE photograph of Negro troops during World War I, with many interesting poses by the soldiers (including a pair in boxing pose !) making this a unique piece of African-Americana and U.S. Military history !. First Printing. Photograph. Near Fine.
