[4th Artillery Camp]

Date: 1913 - 1915
Creator: unknown
Description: Soldiers gather between two rows of large tents busy with a variety of tasks. In the center foreground two soldiers sit on chairs near a table. Equipment and gear including a wheel and a strapped bundle are scattered in a rough circle in front of the table. Smoke is blowing from beyond that table to the left. In the right rear, approximately twenty soldiers are standing in a rough line moving toward soldiers at another table. In the middle rear, soldiers gather near another table in front of another large tent. Wording on photo back "Texas City, Tx Aug 16, 1915 4th Art. Camp." Based on other photographs taken on Aug. 16, 1915, the day a hurricane struck and decimated the camp, it is most likely that this particular photo was taken before the date on the photo back or well after.

Seven other soldiers in uniform and one civilian man dressed in white shirt and bow tie stand in front of the airplane.

Milling, instructor and Fred Seydel student, Texas City, Texas, May 1913. The 'C" was a larger, heavier version of the 'B', and had fixed vertical stabilizers (Blinkers) in front for additional stability. SC-16 was flown to Houston and back by Lt. Kirtland with Sgt. Idzorek, mechanic, 12 March 1913. It was transferred to San Diego in June 1913, however, a cracked crankcase prevented it from flying. There were no spare 50 h.p. engines, thus preventing this 'C' from joining the rest of the Wright 'C's." (USAF Museum photo)."
