El Morro National Monument Postcard - Camel Corps
Postcards are affordable ways to commemorate your travels to national parks and share those adventures with friends and family. You can send them, keep them for yourself, or even send them to yourself! This postcard representing El Morro National Monument features an illustrated image of several members of the U.S. Army Camel Corps. Westward expansion along the Southwestern route was a hot, dry affair, much like today, with scarce water supplies along the way. In attempt to solve this problem the U.S. Army purchased 33 camels from Egypt and Turkey, and brought with them three Arab handlers.
