Not Purely Social

I have just received the February, 1964, issue of A MERICAN H ERITAGE , and note with much interest the cover illustration which reproduces a water-color drawing by the Russian Paul Svinin. The caption which describes this illustration contains references which are not strictly factual, however. The First Troop Philadelphia City Cavalry has two existences; and all of its “gatherings” are not purely social ones. The Troop … serves today as an armored reconnaissance company of the 28th Division, Pennsylvania National Guard.

We hope you enjoy our work.
