Summary
This classic episode of the U.S. Army's The Big Picture television series ventures to Alaska, where the American Army is stationed. Owing to its strategic position, Alaska is "Seward's Folly" no more as it has become a most important U.S. possession and vital to America's cold war efforts. This video from the National Archives and Records Administration presents a fascinating pictorial report on Army operations there
