Gas Attack

The Gas Attack was the official publication of the 27th Infantry Division while it was training at Camp Wadsworth in Spartanburg, South Carolina. The first twelve issues the full title was the Wadsworth Gas Attack and Rio Grande Rattler. The next twelve issues were titled Gas Attack of the New York Division, 27th Div. U.S.A. The first issue is dated 23 November 1917 and the last issue 4 May 1918. There were two other issues, one published in France for Christmas, 1918 and the last published when the 27th arrived home in March, 1919.

This publication can be considered a continuation of the Rio Grande Rattler.

Some of these files are quite large, they range in size from 5MB to 15MB.
You will need Adobe Acrobat Reader to view these.

Notes:
Due to time considerations only the front cover of each issue was scanned in color. Every other page was scanned in black and white.
These files are searchable; however, they have not been proof-read.
Because the text of the page is actually underneath the page image, the search function within the Acrobat Reader will not be completely accurate. To ensure a comprehensive search you will have to read each issue.

A special thank you to Mark Feldbin of Kingston, NY for lending the museum two issues of the Gas Attack so the we could scan them. He has a wonderful web site dedicated to the 107th Infantry Regiment (the old New York 7th).
