In order to present this subject, it will be necessary to go back to the fall of 1917, when the 42nd Division was organized. It was made up of National Guard troops from twenty-six different states and the District of Columbia. It received the alternate name of the “Rainbow Division” by which it was more commonly known.
In September 1917, the 42nd Division was assembled at Camp Mills, Long Island, New York. Here a great many other officers were assigned to the division. Fifty-nine were assigned to the 166th Infantry, of which I was one. (more)
