Located in the northern Virginia hills just south of our nation's capital, Marine Corps Base Quantico is known throughout the world as the Crossroads of the United States Marine Corps. Images of America: Quantico takes the reader on a visual tour of Quantico's evolution-through World War I, interwar service as an expeditionary base, and the development of the amphibious capabilities made famous by the Marines in World War II. The impact of famous Marines, including Generals John A. Lejeune and Smedley D. Butler, is explored, as is the unique relationship between the base and the Town of Quantico, the only United States city surrounded by a military base.
