"Camp Merritt: The Camp Beautiful"  
Peggy Norris and Joe Suplicki

Camp Merritt was an embarkation camp for World War I located in Cresskill and Dumont. Over 1,000,000 soldiers went through the camp on their way to Europe or on their way home from the battlefields. Peggy Norris and Joe Suplicki share images of the camp, information about its activities, and highlight Peggy's grandfather's journey from Ohio to France and home through Camp Merritt.
