"The Business Man's Camp at Plattsburg has accomplished several of it's avowed objects. It has proved itself practicable. It has demonstrated that men of high standing in business, professional and social affairs are willing to make personal sacrifices for the country's good.

Finally, the Plattsburg camp has grounded a large number of intelligent Americans in the rudiments of warfare."
