Crowds of men, women, and a few soldiers gather outside. Some women hold umbrellas to shade them from the sun. Hughes described this scene as a canteen. A canteen is a place that sells food and drink on a military base. In 1917 James C. Hughes was Captain of Battery C, 130th Field Artillery, Kansas National Guard. He was stationed at Camp Doniphan, Oklahoma, for field artillery training. Camp Doniphan is adjacent to Fort Sill which is just outside Lawton, Oklahoma.
