Home of the historic Harlem Hell Fighters undergoing $42 million renovation

These pillars in the main entry way of the New York Army National Guard’s historic Harlem Armory in New York City feature the federal eagle typical of 1930’s-era government architecture and the rattlesnake crest of the 369th Infantry. While popularly known as the Harlem Hell Fighters, the African-American National Guard regiment officials called themselves the "Rattlers" and adopted the rattle snake as their unit symbol. Historic details like this will be preserved during a two-year, $42 million renovation project now underway. (U.S. Army National Guard photo by Major Al Phillips/Released)
