ORD/BTC-10 Newspaper Collection

This collection of newspapers published by the U.S. Army Basic Training Center #10 (BTC-10), later the Overseas Replacement Depot (ORD), documents life on an urban army base in the Southern city of Greensboro, North Carolina, during the final years of World War II. BTC-10/ORD was an important element in Greensboro's growth and development both during and after the war, and was the largest military base in America within official city limits.

Except during part of 1943, when some issues were published by the publisher of the local civilian newspaper, the BTC-10/ORD newspapers were published by the United States Army. All issues feature base and military news, coverage of dances and other social events, and advertisements for local businesses that catered to the soldiers, providing not only an important record of military history but also a glimpse into the social and cultural life of Greensboro during the period.
