Ready to Roll. With nearly 2000 troop and cargo trucks, artillery prime movers, weapon carriers and combat cars, the 44th Division breaks camp. As the "Blue Army," the 17,000 troops will fight a "Red Army" in a mythical three-day battle to test their effectiveness, in a "war zone" below the Rappahannock River, south of Fredericksburg, Va.
