1 edition published in 1958 in English and held by 81 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Filmed in Philadelphia, this episode tells the story of a historic incident that took place in 1763 when the forerunners of Philadelphia's 111th Infantry Regiment (Pennsylvania National Guard) were besieged by Indians at Fort Pitt in the midst of the French and Indian War. They were rescued by the tough troops of Britain's Black Watch--the soldiers who, because of their kilts and ferocity, were nicknamed the "ladies from hell" in World War I. Since that time in 1763, the descendants of the 111th and the Black Watch Regiment have maintained a close and friendly association. Each year the 111th in Philadelphia reserves a vacant chair at the table during the annual ceremonial mess. The vacant chair is held in honor of the Black Watch Regiment. A 25-man camera crew from the Army Pictorial Center filmed the many activities that took place in conjunction with the ceremonial mess which was held at the Union League. Coverage was also given to the first professional football game to be played in the U.S. by two teams from across the border in Canada."--National Archives and Records Administration

From the U.S. Army's The Big Picture television series, 1950-1975. "All Americans are vitally interested in the defense of their country. And for those who live in the Northeastern portion of America, it is only natural that they be particularly interested in the Army which is based in that section -- the First Army. THE BIG PICTURE cameras roam through the eight states which are included in the First Army's territory, to see and hear what it is doing.

In making this picture, the camera crews visited Signal Corps engineering laboratories at Fort Monmouth, N.J., and the Army Electronic Proving Ground at Fort Huachuca, Arizona. Television audiences will look at a simulated battlefield of the future, and see how some Signal equipment, and how communications systems developed at the proving grounds, would be employed. The operation of the new 100-inch camera with its infra-red lens, capable of penetrating 26 miles through haze, will be shown in reconnaissance missions. This is a new form of reconnaissance -- under atomic or non-atomic conditions."--National Archives and Records Administration
