Delano notes in many of his photograph titles that a whole industry emerged in Hinesville to satisfy the needs and curiosities of soldiers coming to nearby Camp Stewart. Today, Fort Stewart is the largest army base east of the Mississippi River and continues to be the economic engine of the region.
