“Throngs cheer New York Field Artillery off for camp”:

More than 5,000 persons gathered about the armory of the Second Regiment Field Artillery, N.Y.N.G., Franklin Avenue and 166th Street, Bronx, N.Y., to say goodbye when the men of the second battalion and the supply company started for camp, July 24, 1917. The battalion entrained at the Kingsbridge Yards of the New York Central Railroad. They were escorted there from the armory by a battalion from the Eighth Coast Defense Command and a band.” 7/24/1917
