Did You Know?
At the start of American entry into World War I and just before leaving Governors Island in May 1917 to lead the 2 million soldiers of the American Expeditionary Force in France, General John J. Pershing (1860-1948) ran uptown into Manhattan to register early for the draft of the very army he was leading to France. He was going to be busy and out of town on draft registration day.
