organization was composed of patriotic German Americans of the city of

Harrison, for three months. On May 18 it was ordered to Camp Dennison to
be equipped and prepared for active service. Here they learned of the

nearly the entire membership agreed to enlist for that period, the
enrolling taking place on May 27, the 9th being the first three years
