      Human Statue of Liberty - on a stifling July day in 1918, 18,000 soldiers posed as Lady Liberty on the drill grounds at Camp Dodge. According to a news story, many men fainted- they were dressed in woolen uniforms- as the temperature neared 105 degrees. The photo, taken from atop a specially constructed tower by Mole & Thomas, was intended to help promote the sale of war bonds but was never used.
