        American Expeditionary Forces Tank Corps Archive

      Fletcher, Private Robert G., Camp Colt, PA and France 1918 - This is a terrific grouping of World War I postal history from Private Robert G. Fletcher of Birmingham, Alabama that documents the birth of the U.S. Army's Armor Branch. Highlights of this collection of 16 postcards and covers with letters include two rare Treat 'Em Rough envelopes, one rare Treat 'Em Rough letterhead, one rare Tank Corps Camp Colt envelope, one rare AEF Christmas package mailing coupon, and two scarce American Red Cross 'postal' handstamps. Private Fletcher's dog tags are included as well. Fletcher was drafted in March of 1918, and by early May he had reported to Camp Colt, Gettysburg, Pennsylvania for training in the soon to be formed Tank Corps commanded by Major Dwight D. Eisenhower. Upon deployment, he was assigned to C Company, 302nd Tank Battalion, a unit equipped with heavy British Mark VI tanks. In France, the 302nd was stationed in Langres (APO 714) at the AEF's Tank Center commanded by Captain George S. Patton. Following the Meuse-Argonne offensive, Fletcher was reassigned to the 344th Tank Battalion, also stationed at Langres, which was equipped with light French Renault tanks. Censorship was apparently very strict in the Tank Corps as Fletcher's letters are mostly requests for additional mail from home and provide little insight into unit operations. Still, this collection of materials that date from the creation of the Tank Corps at Gettysburg through the Armistice is unique, and it is unlikely that any other similar assemblages exist.

In full: Dear Miss Patton: General Pershing directs me to send you the enclosed photograph of Warren. The General is extremely busy these days, as you may know, but I am pleased to say that he is looking very well indeed. Sincerely yours, Geo. E. Adamson, Sec'y". George Patton had a sister, Anne, and was very close to his Aunt, whom he referred to as Aunt Nannie. This letter is probably written to one of those two ladies.John Joseph "Black Jack" Pershing (September 13, 1860 â?? July 15, 1948), was a general officer in the United States Army who led the American Expeditionary Forces in World War I.

        President WilsonÕs Vision For Post-War America

      - American Doughboys began to flood into France in the first half of 1918, and the German command determined to make a major push to gain an advantage in the war before the Americans could make their presence felt. Their offensive did not go well, and in early August a counter-attack by the Allies placed the Germans on the defensive for the bal- ance of the war. So by late August 1918, it was clear that the war would be won, and moreover would end in the fors- eeable future. As victories piled up throughout September, the President was concentrating on negotiations to end the war and the on the need to reor-der world affairs along the lines of his famous 14-points. However, he was also Òthinking deeply about the domestic scene and beginning to consider the shapeof post-war America.The men in the trenches.will return to their homes.and. will demand real thinking and sincere action.ÓWilson started his political career as governor of New Jersey and as such was leader of that stateÕs Democratic Party. He left Washington just a few times during World War I, believing that his personal presence was important to the war effort. In this spirit, he declined, probably with real regret, an invitation to speak at a banquet being held by Democrats in New Jersey in the lead-up to the 1918 election. Instead, he sent this striking message to his old colleagues, one likely to be read to the group. It constitutes his definitive view of how America would need to change as a result of the war.Typed Document Signed as President on White House letterhead, 3 pages, Washington, circa September 1918, to the Toastmaster of the Democratic Reor- ganization Banquet. Wilson started with a summation of his progressive accom- plishments as Governor of New Jersey. ÒI sincerely regret that matters of pressing importance will prevent my taking part.At the same time.I cannot overlook my re- sponsibility as leader of a great party.It is my privilege to point out what I believe to be the duty of the Democrats in New Jersey, now and in the months to come, in order that the exigency of a great hour of crisis may be properly met. During the months that I had the privilege of serving the people of New Jersey in the office of Governor, we sought to accomplish this definite purpose, namely, to open the processes of govern- ment to the access and inspection of every citizen, in order that the people might feel that the Government of New Jersey represented their hopes, their impulses, and their sympathies. It was with this great purpose in mind that we succeeded in establishing electoral machinery which took away from selfish political leaders the power to hold the mass of the party voters of the state in subjection to themselves.In every act of legisla- tion we cut a clear pathway of public service and achieved a record remarkable for its variety and humanity, in every way comprehensive in character and touching no vital interest in the state with a spirit of injustice or demagogy. We gave the people afterPage 69Page 70many tedious and discouraging years of waiting a government which they could feel was their own, free and unhampered by special privilege.ÓWilson continued with a statement about how the war and world situation were bringing dislocation and uncertainty, and would inevitably result in alteration of the national and international landscapes. He saw an urgent and vaguely discomfitting mood among the electorate in the coming post-war era, especially among returning soldiers, who would demand a more democratic and sincere government. ÒA time of grave crisis has come in the life of the Democratic party. Every sign of these terrible days of war and revolutionary change, when economic and social forces are being released upon the world whose effect no political seer dare ven- ture to conjecture, bids us search our hearts through and through and make them ready for the birth of a new day, a day we hope and believe of greater opportunity and greater prosperity for the [Attributes: Signed Copy]

        Tokaido: Hiroshige-ga Gojusan-tsugi Genjo Shashin Taisho

      Tokoen, Tokyo 1918 - (Hiroshige's Fifty Three Stations of the Tokaido and Corresponding Taisho Era Photographs) Taisho 7 (1918), oblong small 4to (12 x 8 7/8 ;in - 30 x 22.6 cm), decorated blindstamped blue cloth with gilt lettering on front board, bound Japanese style and format (reads back to front) with heavy ribbon ties, color woodblock illustrated endpapers at the front and rear, black and white collotype reproductions of photographs and color "off-set" plates, 112 pages + 40 additional pages of Japanese language text at the rear, 152 pages total. The color plates include a map of the Tokaido (2 views on one plate, one current and one from earlier days), a compilation of Hiroshige-s seals, portrait of a man seated (probably Hiroshige). The index calls the black and white photograph (shashin) reproductions "collotype." The color prints are called "off-set" in the index and I believe that they can technically characterized as color offset lithographs. The color plates are printed on thick tanish dull mat finish paper with a grill pattern embossed into the paper. The color plates were printed two to a sheet and then the sheet was folded and bound into the book in typical Japanese style. The collotype plates are printed front and back. The sequence is two color plates (one page folded) followed by two black and white collotypes (one sheet printed front and back). Following this pattern the plate on one side is the color reproduction of the Hiroshige print and the facing page is the corresponding black and white collotype reproduction of a photograph showing the same scene at the time the book was published. Each black and white plate has a descriptive paragraph in English at the top and a Japanese language paragraph on the side. The number of each view is stated in Japanese at the top of each black and white plate. Following the 55th plate is a collotype plate showning two stone monuments in honor of Hiroshige. Hiroshige's famous views of the 53 stations of the Tokaido was composed of 55 prints. These included the terminal points (Nihonbashi on one end and Kyoto on the other) and the 53 intermediate stations (tsugi). This books presents all 55 views. ~ Condition. The book is in Good+ condition. It is complete. While the binding is solid, the top ribbon tie is approximately 60% broken at the back. The corners are bumped and worn and there are several scrapes and discolored areas on the boards. It is unclear which of the preliminary plates had tissue guards, however, one plate (portrait) shows evidence that a tissue guard was present but is now removed. The book has moderate foxing and soiling and while most pages have a small-moderate amount, it is primarily in the margins. The foxing and soiling is move evident on the collotype plates than the color plates. Approximately 10% of the pages have small tears (less than 1/2 in) in the margins at the bottom or top edge. None of the tears enter the image area. The text pages at the rear are lower quality paper and while not brittle, they are aged/tanned. ~~ More information, to include digital pictures, available on request.
