HISTORY OF FORT JACKSON
"VICTORY STARTS HERE"
Although Fort Jackson was estab-
lished to answer America's need for
trained soldiers in the gathering
storm of World War I, the very first
fighting men to walk through these
gates could point with a certain pride
to a rich heritage and trace their
military lineage to one of the earliest
battles of the American Revolution.
In June 1917, Company E, 1st
Regiment, South Carolina Infantry
became the first unit to arrive at the
fledgling Camp Jackson. This unit
was derived from the Second Regi-
ment, South Carolina Line, Conti-
nental Establishment which defeat-
ed a British fleet in the battle of Fort
Moultrie six days prior to the signing
of the Declaration of Independence.
Although named for Major Gener-
al Andrew Jackson, a native son of
the Palmetto State and seventh
president of the United States, the
fort is actually situated on the for-
mer estate of General Wade Hamp-
ton, who served as an early governor
of the state and as U.S. Senator.
The initial site for the cantonment
consisted of almost 1200 acres and
was purchased by the citizens of Co-
lumbia and donated to the federal
government initiating a long tradi-
tion of mutual respect and concern
between the city and the fort.
With an ideal climate for year-
round training, the site designated
Camp Jackson was chosen as one of
16 national cantonments constructed
to supply the war effort.
The pressures of war brought swift
changes. Within 11 days of signing a
contract to construct the post, the
100-man camp guard arrived. By the
end of the first month, the labor
force had grown to more than 1,200
and the first two barracks were com-
Two months later this force had
grown to almost 10,000 men. Virtual-
ly overnight the post had grown from
a sandy pine and scrub oak forest to a
thriving training center complete
with trolley line and hundreds of
In the third month following the
beginning of construction, some
8,000 draftees arrived and began
training. Under the post's first acting
commander, Brigadier General
Charles H. Barth, its first military
unit - the 81st "Wildcat" Division
- was formed. Members of the origi-
nal camp guard who had been the
first to occupy the fort were moved
to Camp Sevier in Greenville, South
Carolina and were incorporated into
the 30th "Old Hickory" Division.
More than 45,000 troops of these
two divisions trained at Camp Jack-
son and saw action in France as part
of the American Expeditionary
Forces in World War I.
In less than eight months this vast
military installation was completed.
Where before there were sandhill
forests and swamps, a new city stood.
It boasted theaters, stores, kitchens,
barracks, officers' quarters, training
facilities, stables, warehouses, ga-
rages, an airfield, roads, bridges, rail-
roads, water and sewer lines and was
distinguished by having the largest
government-operated laundry in the
country. The hospital consisted of
more than 80 buildings covering
some 15 acres at the highest point on
But almost as suddenly as it had
begun, the clamor and activity sub-
sided. With the signing of the Armis-
tice in 1918, the famed 30th Division
was deactivated at Camp Jackson.
The 5th Infantry Division trained
here until deactivated in October of
1921. The installation reverted to
control of the Cantonment Lands
Commission, and from 1925 to 1939
the silence of the post was broken
only by training exercises of the
South Carolina National Guard.
In 1940, the installation, once
again under federal control, was offi-
cially designated Fort Jackson and
was organized as an Infantry Train-
ing Center. Firing ranges were con-
structed and more than 100 miles of
roads were hard surfaced.
During World War II the "Old
Hickoryv 30th Division was one of
the first units to occupy the Fort, just
as it had in 1917. Among other famed
units to train at Fort Jackson during
this period were the 4th, 6th, 8th,
26th, 30th, 77th, 87th, 100th and the
106th. The 31st "Dixie Division"
trained here during the Korean War.
Literally thousands of troops were
trained by other units at the Fort
during the Korean and Vietnam con-
Today, Fort Jackson is officially
designated as a U.S. Army Training
Center where young men and women
are taught to look, act and think as
From its earliest days, Fort Jack-
son personnel have exemplified the
"can-do" spirit with the drive and
the determination to get the job
done. With some 70,000 soldiers
trained here annually, it becomes
clear that this is a living heritage and
a tradition which continues today.
Fort Jackson is one of the largest
training facilities of its type in the
world today. Some 70,000 soldiers
are trained here annually. The post
is almost 53,000 acres or 82 square
miles in area and there are more than
1,700 buildings. Access to the instal-
lation and its training areas is pro-
vided by more than 130 miles of un-
The first flag unfurled over the
post in November 1917 was flown
from the tallest flagpole in the Unit-
ed States measuring some 153 feet.
The first all-black regiment of
World War I was organized here in
July of 1917. Organized as the First
Provisional Infantry Regiment fCol-
oredl and later designated as the
371st Infantry Regiment, this unit
was officially assigned to the French
army. It was cited for bravery under
fire and received more than 100 indi-
vidual and unit decorations.
The first all-female brigade was es-
tablished at Fort Jackson in July of
1974. It was designated the 5th Basic
In keeping with its record of his-
torical firsts, Fort Jackson became
the proving ground for the integra-
tion of basic training by sex. Both
men and women are rquired to meet
the same rigid standards of excel-
