The Fitzgerald museum in Montgomery is a good place to visit.
That is the 167th IN Regt.
Yes. Visit the house in Montgomery where Scott and Zelda last lived together with Scottie. Very interesting.
Sorry, but Fitzgerald was in the 9th Infantry Division, mustered into service in July 1918 at Camp Sheridan. The 9th replaced the 37th (Ohio) ID for which Sheridan had originally been built. The 37th began arriving in August 1917 and its final element arrived on Oct 28, 1917.
The 167th Regiment of the 42nd ID was the federalized 4th Alabama Militia (National Guard). They had seen service with the Punitive Expedition to Mexico, returned to Vandiver Park (their muster grounds) in Feb 1917, then were mustered into federal service in June 1917 before General Leonard Woods signed the contract with Montgomery that created Sheridan. The 167th trained at Camp Mills on Long Island.
Fitzgerald’s 9th ID did not see overseas service and was mustered out at Sheridan in February 1919.
Any information on flu deaths and burials at Ft. Sheridan? Records? — thanks
