NYMA cadets in action

The photo album had many great images of the daily life of the cadets at the New York Military Academy, including a couple of photos of them on drill.

Marching cadets at NYMAMarching cadets at NYMAMarching the day away

You would have to think that there was plenty of marching going on at the NYMA, and what military photo album would be complete without an image of cadets on the march?

At least the cadets had a great view of the mountains to keep thier minds off the drudgery of marching.

 

A quiet game of golfA quiet game of golfSome leisure time at the academy

Of course not everything was drill, drill, drill at the academy, and what could be better than a nice quiet game of golf to calm the nerves?

Check out the scenery in the background, how picturesque! I'd love to be there taking in all that fresh mountain air.



Another game of golfAnother game of golfAnother Round of golf anyone?

Here's another photo of some cadets playing golf.

The photo album was split pretty much between sports and military action. I guess the author of the photo album wanted the viewers to know that it was not all work at the academy.

Pigskin footballPigskin footballReal pigskin football!

What military academy would be complete without a football team? The New York Military Academy photo album has a couple of images of football.

I can't imagine actually counting on those real pigskin football helmets to protect a skull from being fractured after taking a tackle.

NYMA football team of 1898

This image is theonly other football image that was in the photo album, but at least it's a good one. The photo shows the NYMA football team of 1898 posing for a photo just before the big game.

These are some serious looking fellas! I certainly wouldn't want to go up against any of these guys in a football game.

 



Baseball at the NYMABaseball at the NYMABaseball too

Unfortunately there was only one photo of a baseball game in the photo album. Maybe the game wasn't as popular as it is today.

Hey, what's that cadet to the left doing marching through the middle of the game?

"A virulent, aggressive minority has decided that Americans don't know themselves what it is they should see, and need to be protected by people who are wiser than they are, even if they are only a tiny sliver of the population."
