1934 Camp Promotion Film

This camp promotion was produced by Philadelphia Electric Company in 1934. Filmed by Jos. S. Webb and T. J. Price, it features a typical day in Camp Horseshoe. Many of the landmarks and traditions have endured and are main stays of camp life in the 21st century. The original 16 mm film had been transferred to VHS and that VHS was the source for this digital version. The film has been divided into nine parts for publishing in the HSRAA Online Museum.

       

This part contains footage of the morning ritual in the stockades beginning with reveille.  Also featured is the Octoraro and Camp Director Thomas J. Price.
