A great number of men are moving into the tent. An image of Camp Sorghum, Columbia, S.C., is shown above the central image and consists of tents and cabins on a newly cleared field. Soldiers stand guard in the foreground. Another view of Camp Sorghum shows Hospital Camp Sorghum with wounded men standing outside their tents.
