Contributed by Maine Historical Society

Description

Sumner Cobb served stateside during WWI. He was stationed at two military bases during his time: Camp Devens in Massachusetts and Camp Taylor in Louisville, Kentucky. He didn't face dangers of overseas warfare and life in the trenches, but was at risk of contracting the Spanish Flu. It was spreading throughout the home front at the end of the war. He wrote about it frequently in his letters home between September and October 1918.
