September 1918. "Shell Shock patients having a happy time fishing and swimming under the walls of the old chateau. These American soldiers are recovering from war neurosis, as the scientists now call the condition that used to be described as 'shell-shock.' Capt. A.E. Dennis, American Red Cross hospital representative for the U.S. Army camp at Blois, has obtained wonderful results by taking a number of these patients away from the noise and congestion of the hospital to the quiet out-door life in the forest of the Chateau Chambord near Blois." 5x7 glass negative by Lewis Hine for the American Red Cross.
