Images of America - Fort MyerA Groundbreaking milestone in military history!

Until now, little has been written about this US Army Post which has its origins in the US Civil War.  In fact, it is believed that this is the first book about a place noted for many events, people and more that have had an impact on the United States and the world.   Researched and written by John Michael, the book reaches back to the 1860s when it was first built, then known as Fort Whipple. With over 200 historic photographs, a first time published note from Abraham Lincoln, the pages take the reader through the first one hundred years into the 1960s. From the Signal Corps School to Cavalry Showcase to Society Circus ... Learn about the impact of George S. Patton, the role of the 3d Cavalry "The Brave Rifles", US Army Band - "Pershing's Own" and US Army 3d Infantry - "The Old Guard" Telling photos to provide insights into the history of the only one of the more than 70 Civil War era forts still protecting the City of Washington DC over 150 years later.
