Ceremonies - Preparedness Day, Washington, D.C. - Marine veterans stage realistic battle in Philadelphia, PA. to stimulate recruiting. Two hundred United States Marines, veterans of the Nicaraguan, Haytian and Dominican campaigns, staged a sham battle in the very heart of Philadelphia, PA., to stimulate recruiting. Divided into defenders and attackers, the former using the ruins of the buildings which are being razed to make way for a park. The Marines Marines skirmishedfor two hours. The men were attired in field uniform loaded down with equipment, hauled field guns and light artillery as though the taking of the city depended upon their efforts. The battle was planned as part of the recruiting campaign of the Marine Corps. Photo shows Marines enroute to battle; Madeline McCadden bearing the standard. 1917

U.S. National Archives

The objects in this collection are from The U.S. National Archives. The U.S. National Archives and Records Administration (NARA) was established in 1934 by President Franklin Roosevelt. NARA keeps those Federal records that are judged to have continuing value—about 2 to 5 percent of those generated in any given year. There are approximately 10 billion pages of textual records; 12 million maps, charts, and architectural and engineering drawings; 25 million still photographs and graphics; 24 million aerial photographs; 300,000 reels of motion picture film; 400,000 video and sound recordings; and 133 terabytes of electronic data. All of these materials are preserved because they are important to the workings of Government, have long-term research worth, or provide information of value to citizens.
