Mexican Expedition and World War One Scrapbook
New Jersey, 1916. Fascinating scrapbook about Colonel Clyde E. Winterton of the New Jersey National Guard. The scrapbook is in an old business journal and contains 57 pages of documents, photographs, newspaper clippings, postcards, and ephemera that cover his service during the Mexican Expedition (sometimes referred to as the Punitive Expedition or the Pancho Villa Expedition) of 1916 and later as a member of the American Expeditionary Force in World War I. Includes several photos and real photo postcards of the Mexican Expedition, Camp McClellan Alabama, and France, as well as a nice three-panel panorama postcard of Bisbee Arizona, a letter to Winterton's parents from his brigade commander ensuring them that their son's court-martial (for saying insulting things about the Commanding General of the 29th Division while off-duty) would not affect his future service, Thanksgiving Dinner menus for the 113th Infantry Regiment (part of the 29th Division), Winterton's orders assuming command of a New Jersey Armory Company, an official "Safe Arrival" postcard notifying Winterton's parents that he had sarrived in France, a telegram to Winterton's father notifying him that Winterton had been wounded, an elaborate form letter signed by the governor of New Jersey (Walter Evans Edge) expressing concern about Winterton's wounds, a YMCA song book, a letter of thanks from Governor Edge congratulating Winterton's father on the meritorious service of his son, and much more. Many of the newspaper clippings concern Winterton's exemplary service as an acting battalion commander in the Meuse-Argonne Offensive during the final days of the war for which he received a battlefield promotion to Major, a divisional citation, and the French Croix de Guerre.. Hard Cover. Very Good. 4to - over 9¾" - 12" tall.
