This is a fantastic, large photo of the gathered officers, men, and regimental band of the 101st Engineer Battalion posed along a cleared hillside at Camp Devens, MA in 1919 following the battalion's reconstitution following the end of the First World War. During the U.S. involvement, the battalion was consolidated into the 104th Infantry Regiment of the 26th Infantry Division (the “Yankee Division”), and served at Aisne-Marne, St. Mihiel, and Meuse-Argonne. The photo is in excellent condition with a crisp and clear image, slightly faded along the extreme right edge, and is housed in a period wooden frame that measures 51 1/2” x 17”. The 101st Engineer Battalion is one of the longest serving units in the U.S. Army, able to trace its lineage to the formation of the “East Regiment” of the Massachusetts Militia in 1636, and is still an active unit within the Massachusetts National Guard. This is a spectacular photograph, and would make a splendid addition to any collection of American military antiques.
