Returning to the Departure of Company H
A week or so ago, Gossips recalled the farewell parade that took place in Hudson on August 14, 1917, when Company H, Hudson's "adopted soldier boys," left Hudson, where they'd been since April, to embark on "the long journey that will eventually take it to the battlefields of France." The report in the Hudson Evening Register of the parade featured a photograph of the Red Cross Nurses' Division lined up in front of the armory before the parade. That photograph was on the front page. Farther into the paper, on page five and discovered there only tonight, were these two pictures of the parade, as it passed the First Presbyterian Church on Warren Street.
