This well loved USA Army Camp Forest, Tullahoma Tennessee souvenir pennant has seen better days, so it is very hard for me to tell exactly how old this is, I am guessing that it is from the 1940s. My research has said that the camp, named after Civil War Cavalry Confederate General Nathan Bedford Forrest, was originally named Camp Peay. Camp Peay was named after the Tennessee Governor Austin Peay and built in Tullahoma as a National Guard Camp in 1926. Camp Forrest officially became a prisoner of war camp May 12, 1942. The camp housed Italian and German POWs. Prisoners became laborers at Camp Forrest in the hospitals and on farms in the local community. Initially the camp held civilian detainees who were arrested at the outbreak of the war under a program called "Alien Enemy Control." The camp closed in 1946 when the buildings were auctioned off and the site turned into a research facility.

This piece would be great for the Army collector or someone in the army as it is a great piece of American history. This piece is very faded and very fragile due to it's age.

All of our pennants are shipped in a tube and can easily be flattened again with an iron set to low. Just iron the back without ink and viola you have a nice flat pennant.

Measurements: 23" long and 9" at widest part
