Attached is a spirited report from a 1919 issue of THE INDEPENDENT about how the African-American Doughboys came to see France rather than their own homeland, as the land of equality and liberty. This four-column article was written by Oscelo E. McKaine, who was serving as a second lieutenant in the all-black 92nd Division.

In later life he would play an important roll in the civil rights movement as it unfolded in his native South Carolina.
