World War I: 10th and 20th Forestry Engineers

Header WW1 Forestry Engineers

The digital collection World War I: 10th and 20th Forestry Engineers has been created by The Forest History Society. This collection with some 100 photographs documents the training and build-up of what eventually became the largest regiment of the US Army, and contains also images of their activity in France. The regiment helped supplying timber in large quantities to the American Expeditionary Forces.

The accompanying web page with information about the forestry engineers contains links to numerous digitized articles about their role during the First World War, in particular a memoir about his service by George S. Kephart who took 85 photographs on display in this collection.
