This is merely a brief test blog to see if I have properly followed posting instructions for the upgraded version of the Leader on line—ptleader.com.
My main concern is attachment of an accompanying photo. If it appears properly here it will depict troops from Fort Worden bivouacked in Chimacum Valley in 1910. This appears to have been at least an annual training exercise. Other photos of the era indicate that while some horses were involved, most of the troops marched to the scene. ‘
Another early photo depicts troops having marched from Fort Worden’s west gate along San Juan Avenue and turning up Dundee Hill.
