Roll call


Fort Preble was an active Army base from when it was constructed in 1808 through World War II. Shown here are soldiers lined up for roll call in front of their barracks in 1908. The fort was deactivated and declared surplus in 1950. The fort is now part of Southern Maine Community College.
