"Camp Dodge Christmas."

This editorial describes the Christmas celebrations of Captain Charles G. Kelley's company of Alabama soldiers at Camp Dodge. On behalf of the Tuskegee Women's Club, Mrs. Booker T. Washington sent Kelley "a box of good things so that you and your men would know that we are thinking of you." The author also notes that "each colored company had a big turkey dinner and everything that goes with it."
