Troops parade down Baltimore Street near Calvert in 1918.  Parades and other festivities would have helped stir patriotism and promote cohesion among Americans.  Perhaps these young men were new recruits marching off toward their training bases, or maybe they were heading directly toward the war in Europe, either way, this celebration and apparent support from the civilian population must have bolstered them.
