Tom Kelly, Dumont Historian and Tom Sites will share the history of the military base that was used during World War I by more than a million soldiers before their deployment to Europe.  This camp covered 770 acres, was composed of 1302 buildings, and was active from 1917-1920. You are probably familiar with the monument at the Cresskill traffic circle and now you will know why it was constructed there.
