Citizens Military Training Camp


This program, conducted for a month each summer in the years between World War I and World War II by the U.S. Army, took place across the country including in North Dakota at Fort Lincoln in Bismarck. “The program is military drill and instruction of young men who are in uniform, quartered in tents or barracks, fed at Army messes…from reveille to taps each man knows that he is ‘in the Army now.’” Age of participants ranged from 17 to 24 years. The government paid for transportation to and from the camp and supplied everything from uniforms and food to supplies. The purpose was to teach citizenship and to educate young men and their families about the military.

At Fort Lincoln there were around 400 participants in 1930, mostly from North and South Dakota. Training was constructed by regular Army officers and Army Reserve. In addition to military training such as with rifles and machine guns, there were sports activities including baseball, softball, volleyball, boxing, tennis, and swimming. At Fort Lincoln there was a band instructor.  In 1930 the training camp band played a concert on the Bismarck Post Office steps. A program was held at Fort Lincoln for over 150 guests including Governor Shafer showcasing calisthenics, races, drills, games, musical entertainment and awards.
