Camp Zachary Taylor was one of the nation’s 16 cantonments erected during World War I, built to house an entire army division. It opened on 5 September 1917 just outside the city of Louisville, Kentucky, as a “place where Kentucky and Indiana soldiers trained for war.”
Associate Curator of Special Collections Jennie Cole will share stories and images of Camp Taylor from The Filson’s collections, highlighting images of the camp, soldiers’ lives, and the incident of the Influenza Pandemic of 1918-1919.
