During the Great War, servicemen from all over the United States served in the European theater standing in trenches that were often flooded with water, mud, and bacteria. Sometimes the water rose to their waists. These men were not only fighting Germans but they were fighting infections. Learn more about trench foot and the service of Chattanooga’s Battery B who trained on our very own Chamberlain Field by visiting the Roth Grand Reading Room located on the 4th Floor of the UTC Library.
This exhibit was developed by Sara Matthews, a Summer 2018 intern in Special Collections from the Department of History. Support for design of the exhibit panels was provided by Clayton Aldridge, a student assistant in the UTC Library Studio.
