    This page features all the views we have of USS Black Hawk (AD-9), by herself, during the World War II era. For selected views of this ship throughout her career, and links to comprehensive pictorial coverage of other aspects of her service, see: USS Black Hawk (AD-9, originally ID # ),   However, the story of Camp Howze, the th Infantry Regiment, and the 84th Division is another compelling story of World War 2 and its history deserves telling to those who may not know including myself before I researched it. The history of the 84th Division developed from World War 1 and was referred to as the "Lincoln" division.
