Medford Historical Society Papers, Volume 30., With company E, 101st Infantry, in the world war. (search)
ext company street, I am told, received a burn from that flash which left the mark of a perfect cross on his wrist. The flash of lightning killed two or three men. When we became known as Company E, 101st Infantry, we were moved to Camp Maguiness, Framingham. On September 6, 1917, we broke Camp Maguiness and left for parts unknown. Packed in day coaches with our roll packs, we slept sitting down in our seats with our feet stretched out over the fellow opposite us. At daybreak, September 7, we took a river boat down the East river, past the famous Sing Sing prison at Ossining and down to Hoboken, N. J. As we left the river boat Bear Mountain, we marched down the pier. On our way we passed a giant steamship, which we later learned was the Vaterland, afterwards known as the Leviathan. Its sides loomed up like the sides of the Custom house when standing at its base. We were marched past this palatial boat and put on board one of the United Fruit steamers named the Pastores.
