1917 · Camp Merritt is Activated

Camp Merritt was a military base activated for use in World War II. It was located in Bergen County, New Jersey; the location was originally called Camp Tenafly. Construction started on August 20, 1917 and was officially authorized on December 20 of that same year. The location was considered ideal due to how easily soldiers could be transported; they could march just one hour to Alpine Landing and board a ferryboat.


New Jersey contributed extensively to help the United States during World War II. Over 9% of all allied war-based construction contracts were handled in New Jersey, including aircraft carriers, battleships, destroyers, and other naval ships. In addition, almost 500,000 New Jersey residents enlisted in the war (roughly 10% of the state's population).
