|21,000 Soldiers, Battle Creek, MI 1918|
Photographers Arthur S. Mole and John D. Thomas were given a project by the US Government.
They would take photos intended to promote the sale of war bonds, by recreating bits of "American History."
They travelled to military bases mostly, and shot these.
With a willing crowd of posing army recruits, they placed their camera on a tower 100 feet tall.
