Time it was, and what a time it was, it was
A time of innocence, a time of confidences
Long ago, it must be, I have a photograph
Preserve your memories, they're all that's left you

Lee Seal - Time frame about 1914-1918 - Camp Meade

The Seal (Seals) family is all over Sneedville, Tennessee. Our family and the Seals are intertwined by marriage but I have not taken the time to sort them all out. However, in Jewelle's stash of photos, there are two of Lee Seal.

I don't know where he comes in. He could be related to my grandfather's sister who married into the Seals family. It doesn't matter, he belongs to someone so the pictures are here for them.

The pictures says, Lee Seal, Camp Mead. Today, it is Fort Meade and it's in Maryland but it was originally named Camp Mead after Major General George G Meade who won a decisive battle at Gettysburg.

In World War 1, it was a training camp for the soldiers. Both pictures appear to have been taken while he was in training.
