Camp Zachary Taylor was the largest military training camp in the United States during the First World War. This presentation, given by members of the Ballard High School History Club, seeks to bring attention to a nearly forgotten part of Louisville history. The club feels it is its duty to pay tribute to the Forgotten Generation 100 years later. During the presentation, members of the BHS History Club will discuss a number of topics, from F. Scott Fitzgerald and the 84th Division to the flu epidemic and the war stories of those sent Over There. In addition, the presentation will detail Louisville's overall involvement in the war and its long term effect on the city.  The Ballard High School History Club was founded by William Schuhmann when he was a sophomore in high school. William, now a junior, volunteered at The Filson in the summer of 2016 in the Collections department.
