A scarce work featuring the officers, staff, and soldiers of the Third Oregon Infantry while stationed on the Mexican border near San Diego during the conflict with Mexico just before World War I. The work includes field and staff lists, rosters organized by company, and a list of "men who have enlisted at Clackamas since the Regiment left" in the summer of 1916. The work is profusely illustrated with photographs of each company within the text, usually on the recto facing the roster lists. Each inside cover includes a folding panoramic photographic plate - the first titled, "First Battalion at San Diego Exposition, July 9, 1916," and the second featuring the "Third Battalion on the Border - Mexico in the Background." Both panoramic images were produced from photographs by O.A. Tunnell.
