|Tom & Idalene Jenkins, ca. 1918|
Tom and Idalene went home soon after, but many others chose to stay. They established a make-shift camp in Anacostia Flats along the Anacostia River across from the capitol. Although built from scrap, the camp was highly organized and all perspective residents had to register and prove they were honorably discharged veterans. They stayed throughout the summer.
